About this title


Excerpt from The Origin of the Bengali Script

This essay on the origin of the Bengali Script was originally written by me in my mother tongue at the suggestion of the late Ācharya Ramendra Sundara Trivedl, Principal of the Ripon College, who to my great regret has not lived to see its publication. Principal Trivedi intended to publish this essay in the Journal of the Bangiya Sahitya Parisad, of which learned Society he was the Secretary and one of the founders. At the suggestion of the Hon'ble Justice Sir Āsutosa Mukhopadhyaya, Sarasvati, Sastra-Vachaspati, it was translated into English and submitted with Principal Trivedi's consent for the University of Calcutta Jubilee Research Prize which was awarded to me in 1913. The publication of this work was undertaken by the University of Calcutta at the direction of the Hon'ble Justice Sir Āsutosa Mukhopadhyaya, Sarasvatī, Śastra-Vachaspati, Kt., C.S.I., M.A., D.L., Ph.D., D.Sc., etc., then Vice-Chancellor of the University.

I am indebted to my teacher the venerable Pandit Mahāmahopadhyaya Hara Prasada Sastri, M.A., C.I.E., formerly Principal of the Government Sanskrit College, Calcutta, and now President of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, and Dr. D. B. Spooner, B.A., Ph.D., F.A.S.B., formerly Superintendent, Archæological Survey, Eastern Circle, and now Officiating Director General of Archæology in India, for many corrections and valuable suggestions.
