The premier objective with which the great scholars of yester
years had contemplated and established this national academic
event called All India Oriental Conference has been achieved
through these years with scores of young scholars contributing
significantly to the treasure house of knowledge through their'
valuable research work.
The: research of yore and of the present should be properly
recorded so as to make it easily available to all lovers of
knowledge and wisdom in the years to come. With this
objective, we have contemplated to commemorate the 100th
year of this grand event of 50th session of AlOC by way of
publishing 100 monographs on different subjects in four
languages viz., Sanskrit, Hindi, Marathi and English. It is no
doubt a herculean task but still worth of it, for the reason that
these 100 monographs will inspire many young scholars to
take upon a fresh study and research of the oriental subjects
with more vigor and zeal.
The AlOC Centenary Publication Series includes wide
variety of subjects like Literature, Language, Veda, Indian
Philosophy, Sanskrit Grammar, Law, Children Literature,
Yoga, Astronomy and Astrology, Ayurveda, Pali, Prakrit, Jain,
Buddhism; Education, Library Science, Poetics, Aesthetics,
and Indology. It also includes reprint of some rare texts of.
academic importances which have gone out of print are not
easily available. We wish to mark these centenary celebrations
with this series that connects the glory of the past and
aspirations of future. I place on record my sincere gratitude to
all the authors of these monographs who have kindly
contributed to the richness of this series.
I am confident that the books published in these series
will definitely inspire the lovers of Oriental Learning in general
and of Sanskrit Language and Literature in particular.
On this occasion, we have published a memorable book
of all the speeches of Section-Presidents of all previous
sessions of AlOC. It is indeed a very capacious addition to
any collection. I with all respect thank two eminent scholars
of our times ~ Prof. Gautam Patel, President and Prof. Saroja
Bhate, General Secretary, the torch bearers of AIOC who have
not only encouraged us in this venture but also made all efforts
to provide these valuable historical speeches for us. I thank
all executive members of AIOC and my colleagues of the
varsity for making this event a grand success. My words fall
short in describing the painstaking efforts and scholarly
commitment of my esteemed colleague Prof. Madhusudan
Penna, local secretary of this session in bringing out this series.
I also take this opportunity to profusely thank Shri.
Subhash Jain and Shri Deepak Jain, the proprietors of New
Bharatiya Book Corporation, New Delhi for their enthusiastic
approach and timely work with all precision and grace.
Let us all sanctify ourselves in the eternal flow of wisdom
by reading these books and recommending these to others also!
