dealt with are varied their general field of studies pertain to
Dharmasastra and related problems. Hence a general ttle
is given to the present volume as Reflections on Dharmasastra.
Smrtis and Dharmasastras are very much related in several
as poets. They form the contral theme of Indian culture,
and as such there essays will be useful for the appreciation
of Indian culture.
