This present collection reveals, in essence, the multi- faceted approach of Dr. Raghavan, as a true and sincere torch- bearer of the best of our cultural values. This volume would certainly be of great interest to the young and the old, and to the lay and the learned alike.
From 1980, The Dr. V. Raghavan Centre for performing Arts (Regd), Chennai, has been engaged in bringing out his works. The world of scholarship knows the magnitude of his works, many of which remain to be published. On this auspicious occasion of Rama Navami, which happens to be Dr. Raghavan’s 23rd death anniversary, I wish to acknowledge my mother Smt. Sarada Raghavan, the author of the Trust, for her unfailing support, enthusiasm and encouragement in making every endeavour of the centre possible. My brothers Sri R. Kalidas, Dr. R. Charudattan and my sister Smt. Priyamvada have always stood by my efforts. To them I owe my gratitude.
Dr. C.S. Sundaram, Sastra Choodamani Professor, Madras Sanskrit College, and a long time associate of my father, has been kind enough to help me through the over-all supervision of the work and guide me at different stages of this publication. I owe my deep gratitude to him for his continued association with the works of Dr. Raghavan.
Sri Kannan of Kayveekay Letter Prints, Chennai, is to be acknowledged for printing the work in a fitting manner.
