IMPORTANT NOTICE

It has come to the Society's notice that some unscrupulous elements are collecting money for publishing papers in the Society's Journal and offering bogus certificates. The Asiatic Society does not collect money for publishing in its journal, nor does it guarantee publication, and neither does it issue any certificate. Authors must verify with the Society before submitting any papers, and papers will be published only after rigorous peer review. The Society does not take responsibility for any payments made to third parties claiming to represent the Society, or for their papers appearing in a cloned/spam journal.

   



Up the spectacular steps of the grand and imposing Town Hall at Mumbai's Horniman Circle lies the Asiatic Society of Bombay's library with its treasures of books and periodicals, ancient manuscripts, painted folios, coins, artefacts, maps and prints. The much talked about original Italian manuscript of Dante's Divine Comedy is only one of the lustrous gems in a magical cave full of rare jewels. There is the 16th century Sanskrit manuscript Aranyaka Parvan of the Mahabharata, with its rich illustrations rated as a crucial discovery for the study of pre-Mughal miniature painting. The Sopara relics, in the Society's possession, contain among other artefacts, what are believed to be fragments from the Buddha's begging bowl. Bharat Ratna Mahamahopadhyay Dr.P.V.Kane's labours for fifty long years in the Society's Library resulted in his monumental, much acclaimed, multi volume History of Dharmasastra.
