In this bibliography, we have tried to cover mainly the first two of the three related sciences, Vastusastra (Architecture), Silpasastra (sculpture) and Citrasastra (painting) For further bibliographical information, we refer the reader to the following works: (1) A. K. Coomaraswamy: Bibliographies of Indian Art, Boston, 1925; (2) Haridas Mitra: Contribution to a Bibliography of Indian Art, Santiniketan, 1951 (Rep. 1980); (3) H: S. Patil arid R. N. Sar (Eds.)': Aspects of Indian Culture, Select Bibliographies, Vol. I. The Arts, Delhi, 1961. Like in all other sciences, the extent of unpublished manuscript literature on vastusastra and silpasastra that is languishing in various archieves and libraries is jindeed enormous, For instance. The Tanjore Saraswati Mahal Library refers in its master index to, 52 silpasastra manuscripts in Sanskrit. It should be noted that several manuscripts also contain extensive marginal notes and comments by the Sthapatis and other artisans of the ancient times, in the various regional languages of India. The book by Haridas Mitra (cited above) contains also a listing of manuscripts.
As regards the secondary sources, it is indeed important to have some idea on how the modern tradition of 'study of Indian architecture' started and how it has evolved. As usual such studies can be traced to William Jones who in his characteristic manner declared that: 'The silpasastra 'or collection of treatises on Arts and Manufactures, which must have contained a treasure of useful information on dying, painting and metallurgy, has been so' long neglected, that few, if any, traces of it are to be found'*. The end of 18th century and early 19th century were also noted for the various discoveries (and descriptive accounts) of several monuments of India by the British military officers, European travelers, etc. discoveries which often had the same significance and consequence as the celebrated 'discovery' of America by Columbus,
The first serious contribution to the study of Indian architecture was the 'Essay on the Architecture of the Hindus by Ram Raz, published (posthumously) in London in 1834. Ram Raz who was a school teacher and later a judge at Bangalore got hold of a traditional text of vastusastra, a fragment of 'Manasara', which he was able to interpret fairly accurately in consultation with a traditionally trained Sanskrit scholar and a 'good sculptor of the cammata tribe well acquainted with the practice of architecture and the terms used in the art'*. Unfortunately Ram Raz's was the only such effort in the whole of 19th century. The person, who had the greatest influence on all the later studies on Indian architecture, was James Fergusson, who came to India as an indigo planter in the 1830's, and spent considerable time in the next 30-40 years in a study of the various monuments of India, ancient as well as those which were then under construction. Fergusson declared that:
'Architecture in India is still s Jiving art, practiced on the principles which caused its wonderful development in Europe in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, and there consequently and there alone, the student of architecture has a chance of seeing the real principles of the art in action. In Europe, at the present day, architecture is practiced to a manner so anomalous and so abnormal that few, if any, have hitherto been able to shake off the influence of a false system and see that the art of ornamental building can be based on principles of commonsense; and that when so practiced the result not only is, but must be, satisfactory*.
At the same time, Fergusson was also the father of various misconceptions on Indian architecture such as the GraecoRoman or the Gandharan theory of the inspiration of Buddhist sculpture, attribution of everything 'good' in Indian architecture to foreign influences, the sectarian classification of Indian architecture into various 'styles', etc. Fergusson's views were held as the gospel truth till E. B. Havell demolished most of them early in twentieth century.
While Fergusson at least made passing reference to Ram Raz's pioneering work, and was also willing to observe the Indian architect at work, the whole archaeological tradition that followed him was totally blind to the Indian tradition of architectural science. As a recent authority notes :
The Indian sources for example, continued to be scrupulously avoided. Burgess makes the same feeble reference, to Ram Raz which Fergusson had made thirty years earlier, particularly surprising as Burgess bad worked for sometime at Satrunjaya [Palitans] which had a flourishing school of active traditional architects. When Henry Cousens, Burgess' assistant writing jointly with him In 1903 attempted to use a more extended Indian terminology. Burgess' reaction was somewhat negative on the ground that 'few of these terms are to be found in our lexicons and their precise forms can hardly be controlled out of India'. Cousens own attempt to develop new avenues of approach by working together with traditional architects and texts was in no way pursued'**.
It was only in the early decades of this century that the publication and study of the source works began, and this was all the work of traditional scholars and not archaeIqgists. In the same way, Manmohan Ganguli, Nirmal Kumar Bose and others initiated the process of'learning'from the Indian architects. Even more important has been the expository works on Indian architecture and sculpture by the traditionally trained Sthapatis such as Narmada Shankar and Prabha Shankar Somapura. There is of course enormous work that needs to be done in order to understand and propagate the Indian Science of Architecture; but in order to be able to contribute for this endeavour, our archaelogists and architects trained in the modern schools of architecture have to clearly divest' themselves of the various prejudices that they acquire in the course of their 'training'***.
