The Vikramorvasiyam of Kalidasa: A New Skt.Comm. and Arthaprakashika, Various Reading
- +

The revised edition of 1966 was almost sold in short time and I am called upon to publish the present eleventh edition of Vikramorvasiyam edited by late Shri M. R. Kale, B.A. This drama is often prescribed as a text for Inter Arts Sanskrit examination. The appreciation which the book meets of professors and students alike, renders it unnecessary to have any more preface; but a note is quite necessary. In 1966 edition, note sections, references to pages of text were incorrect. This mistake is corrected. I have added at the end appendices which will be useful for references and especially the University Questions will be helpful for students to know what is expected from them and a guide for refreshing their knowledge just before examination.

I must thank the proprietors of M/s. Motilal Banarsidass, who brought out the publication of this edition in a short period of two months. With the earnest hope that the additions made in present edition, may assist in accomplishing the purpose for which they are intended. I wish the students do make best use of them and achieve grand success.

V. M. Kale,
June 1967.
