Picking up the clue from Dr. P.V. Kane`s suggestion about the need of reconstruction of Sankha-Likhita smrti which was lost in its original form in the blackhole of time, Shri J.S. Padeshastri, a renowned oriental scholar entrusted the work of its reconstruction to Shri A.D. Thakar, as the subject for his Ph.D. thesis. Sankha and Likhita were prominent and ancient Smritikaras, whose Sutras and Slokas are scattered in various ancient works on Dharamasastra. Prof. Kane has given 493 quotations collected from 17 works in Dharmasutra of Sankha-Likhita published by BORI Pune. Dr. Thakar collected 963 quotations from 116 works, including a few Mss. With painstaking, diligent and meticulous care and arranged them in a systematic conventional format of Smrti, pointing out the variants too. Reconstructed Text" now seeing the light of day will prove useful and enlightening to the scholars and researchers. CONTENTS: Foreword; Preface; Introduction; 1.
