We welcome you all to the group titled “Kashmir Studies” that was launched to create a common platform for Eastern and Western, traditional and modern scholars, professors and graduate students for discussing and exchanging their academic study and research about any aspects of the Ancient and Medieval Kashmir. We also look forward debating on various academic perspectives about Ancient and Medieval Kashmir through it’s source materials in Sanskrit, Persian, Arabic and Kashmiri languages. The title of the group should not be confused with the Saiva studies alone, but we are aiming to look at a broader intellectual history of Kashmir from the time immemorial to our own times.
I will make it sure that no non-academic persons join this group who usually tend to waste time of academicians. Generally all the members should be affiliates of an academic institute or a research body or could be emeritus or retired professors. Exceptionally we can also have amongst us some independent research scholars of advanced academic caliber.
Please follow the links below to join the group. I am hoping that this platform will prove useful to all of us by having genuine discussions on Kashmirian Studies in general. Please feel free to exchange your thoughts with us. Looking forward to read your comments, suggestions and questions.
