Foreword

Sm. Suranjana Chaudhury has done a unique job by critically editing the ancient Indian text on Phonetics entitled Kalal along with its Dlpika (commentary) composed by Muktisvaracarya of 16th-17th Century CE. The work deals with Siksa, a class of scientific literature which was used to be composed for reciting the Vedic Mantras with correct pronunciation, accentuation etc. Before presenting the main text of the Kalanirnaya with the Dipika (commentary) Sm. Chaudhury has discussed almost all the aspects of Siksa and its allied branches. The main text, its commentary and the introductory part are as a whole a valuable production for scholars interested in Sanskrit Linguistics. Professor Satya Ranjan Banerjee's Prolegomena is a very informative addition to the edited text. It is a very great task for any genuine scholar of oriental learning to present to the academic circle any informative as well as useful unpublished Sanskrit text with its critical edition. Sm. Chaudhury deserves appreciation for her noble attempt to bring to light the edited text of the Kalanirnaua.

 

Preface

This is an attempt to present a critical edition of the Sanskrit work Kala71inJaya with the commentary or Dipika of Muktisvaracarya. The Kalanirnaya is a Siksa text was written in the sixteenth-seventeenth centuries. It deals with the matras or prosodial time measure of letters, accents and pauses. This is a work on the (Vedic) Phonetics.

While I was looking for a manuscript for editing as partial fulfilment of the requirements for the diploma in Manuscriptology in the University of Madras, I came across Kalanirnayaa with Dipika of Muktisvaracarya. This text is a phonetic study of the Veda. As a student of Linguistics, its subject matter helped me to go through it with deep interest.

Kalanirnauadipika is in a prose form. It is a very brief commentary. The book deals with only one point, i.e., on the mora of Sanskrit. The text and the commentary dealt here lay emphasis on the difference in the utterance of vowels and consonants in Sanskrit. Moreover, it emphasises on the aspect of pronunciation of syllables.

The kala is of three components. They are the syllables (letters) that are not split, the parts of the syllables and the time gap for the utterance of the letters.

As the vowels and consonants have different types of utterance, they cannot be treated as letters of similar length to be pronounced.

My deep sense of gratitude is due for the Sree Sarada Educational Research Centre, Chennai, and Government Oriental Manuscripts Library, Chennai, for giving me a copy of the manuscript of the work Kalanirnaya which forms the basis of my critical edition.

It is a great pleasure to put on record my debt and gratitude to Dr. Siniruddha Dash, former Professor and Head, Department of Sanskrit, University of Madras, and former Editor-in-Chief, New Catalogus Catalogorum (NCC) for initiating me into this field of academic study and for the guidance to prepare this critical edition. I owe my indebtedness to Dr. Mamata Mishra, former Associate Editor of New Catalogus Catalogorum, who had helped me throughout the process. Her scholarship and insight had been a source of inspiration to study the manuscripts carefully.

My gratitude is offered to my friends Dr. R. Narayanan, Ms. Subhashini, R. and Ms. R. Prabha and other colleagues and friends of NCC Project of Sanskrit Department, University of Madras.

My special thanks to Mr. Nirbed Ray, Publication Officer, The Asiatic Society, Kolkata, without whose cooperation it would not have been possible to publish this book timely. I am also grateful to Dr. Ramkrishna Chatterjee, former Publication Secretary, Professor Manabendu Banerjee, General Secretary, Dr. Nrisingha Prasad Bhaduri, Publication Secretary and to all my colleagues of the Publication Department, The Asiatic Society, Kolkata.

I acknowledge with deep respect and gratitude for the help and inspiration received from my revered teacher Dr. Satya Ranjan Banerjee, formerly Professor, Department of Linguistics, University of Calcutta.

Lastly, I must mention the encouragement I derived from my father Mr. Krishna Dhar and my mother Late Kalpana Dhar for the accomplishment of the work. In fine, I should mention the help from my son Aniket Chaudhury for urging and encouraging me constantly for the completion of my work.
