PREFACE

Of course, at my instance on listening to his lavish unbaised adulation, but it courted a failure. Pitying, he advised me to send it to some foreign publishers, I did. Ditto joined the attempt. But the rapturous eulogy of a senior Professor, who said, "Your Asoka is of so absorbing interest that I completed yestermight in a single sitting, never did I do in the past. Please print it" elated me infinitely but the deficiency of Vitamin 'M' curtailed my effort. So I confined him in a murky cardboard carton. Inspite of it, I continued my treasure-hunt by fits and starts that spread nearly over two decades and a quarter. Whenever I chanced to throw a glance at it, during the salvaging operations of the written word, I used to hear poor, pale Asoka sighing. Mine too was joining - a sympathetic action, perhaps though I could publish more than a dozen books since then, with the assistance extended by the divine mercy Tirupathi Tirumala Devasthanam's Financial Aid.

At long last the day dawned - the sagacious advice tendered by a chum that it can beside like colossus, if displayed at the International Book Festival, set it in motion. From unexpected source, adequate Finance too sought the venture. Hence its appearance and beckoning you a glance likely. And a touch of patronage too. Your investment will certainly yield good returns as it exhilarates you beside illuminating. Sure and quick. I' am certain you feel electrified as you progress with it. Give it a chance and know the truth.
