Edited by Dr. T. S. Ravishankar

Dr. S. Swaminathan

As a tribute to the memory of Dr. K.V. Ramesh, a collec-tion of essays is presented by scholars who admired and adored him. Dr. K.V. Ramesh, for whom this collection of essays is meant, was such a scholar, whose scholarship was widely acclaimed and applauded. An erudite scholar and accomplished epigraphist of high caliber Dr. Ramesh com-bined in himself the orthodoxy of old school of thought and recent trends in the Indian historiography. Dr. Ramesh was a versatile genius whose passion included not only epigraphy but also other fields. His mastery of Sanskrit, Tamil, Kannada, and English was really enviable. A con-noisseur of arts and letters he was equally at ease in solving crossword puzzles as he decipher ancient inscriptions writ-ten in a complicated script. Epigraphy obtained a new lease of life during his tenure and research scholars thronged to the branch in large numbers which earned the branch a sobriquet “Mecca of epigraphical studies”. It is a thrilling experience to go through the books authored by him as they are written in a breezy style. A polyglot he was a role model to many.

Dr. T. S. Ravishankar (b. 1955) joined the Epigraphy Branch of the Archaeological Survey of India in 1980. Since then, he has been working as an expert in Sanskrit, Epigra-phy and Numismatics. Presently he is heading the branch.

Dr. S. Swaminathan (b. 1953) An accomplished Tamil epigraphist served in the Epigraphy Branch of Archaeolog-ical Survey of India for more than three decades. He has authored 5 books and published more than 100 articles in
