5 JOURNAL or nm BOMBAY BRANCH Ol' THE ROY AL ASIATIC SOCIETY \'ol. vn 1931 NoA. 1 & 2 :\!ORE ON BIOGRAPHY OF RUZBIHAN AL-BAQLI. BY w. lv.l.'iow. In the Joumal of the Asia.tic Society of Bcngn.1 for 1928 {in reality issued only in September 1!}2!l), pp , I lmvo published n. note on a. fragment of n biographical Persian work den.ling with the life an~ miracles of the fumous Sufic saint of Shiraz, Abu Mul)n.mmn.d Rtizbihan b. Ahl Na~r al-bn.qlr al-pasa'i (d. iu the beg. of :\Inl;umam 606 A. H., or micl. July 1209). The fra.gment which contained only 36 leaves and formed only n. small portion of the whole work, was found by me in Shiraz in October All my search for more portions of the 11ame copy was fruitless. Leaving Shiraz, ho\vever, I asked my fril nds to try more in this direction. Quite recently one of them has sent to me n.nother portion of the same copy, only nine leaves, fortwiately belonging to the beginning of the work, and containing much valuable infonna.tion a.bout it. and about it~ author. I bclie\'c it. is worth while to publish these details here. The title of the work is omitted in the copy, though on f. 6 there arc two lines left blnnk in the pl11ee in which it Hhoul<l appear, after the wordi:; " 11 a ml m-i-in kitii.b..." Most probably it wah something like Sfrnl-niiw1-i-Slwykli Riizbihan, because t.he author uses the expression of sirul-n~ma in the se~e of l

6 2 TV. hanow ' hiography,' as on f. Gv, where it is used twice in connection with the Shikh himself. 1 In my preceding pn.pcr I have shown that the work couhl not have been compiled bpfore G78 A.H./1280 A.D. In this fragment, on f. Gv, it is stated plainly that the compiler was asked to write the book 9J after the death of the Shikh ~i. i.e. in or about 700 A.H./ beg A.D. It. \va.s clear that. the author was n. gren.t-gmudson of the Shikh. 3 He gives here (f. Gv) hii; own name as Ihr11.hrm b. Rflzbihan. Thus l1is full name wn.s Ibr!l.hTm b. Shaykhi'l-Isl!l.m ~a.clri'd-din Rflzbihan b. Fakhri'd-d1n Al.1ma<l b. Rflzbih!ln. As may be seen from this fragment, the work had (probably after the usual doxology) an introduction giving a brief mention of clifterent famous Sufo; of various parts of the Islamic world ; after this there is &. p.~gc (f. ijv) on circumstances of the composition of tho book, and on the distribution of 1mbjects in it (ff. G-Gv). The seven babs, into which it was llivitlcd (besides the conclusion, klwtm, mentioned in the fragment. described in the preceding paper), dealt with : 1. On the Shikh"s birth and early c"reer (here is a mistake, and in the margins it is written only: ~u; ~..)_,!,,.) 2. On the great shaykhs who were conteruporo.ries with Ruzbiha.n 4 (.l; j y,, I r la..,s ~Lt... ;1 I( I } j ;.) ) 3. Ou his inst.ruction o.nd miracles ( ~:;. = L.. I/, I:!.!~~}.)),1.

The present fragment opens with the concluding portion of a note on a shaykh who cliccl in 282 A.II./895 A.D. Then foll '\" shaykhs of KhomHan: Abu Yazrd Bis~anli (d. 261/SiG), with a reference to his pupil, Al.1mad b. Khaqruya.. Then Abu"l-Qasim Ibrahrrn h. Ra had hi (d. 367 /977). On f. 1 v is mentioned Abu l~afs Xishii puri (<l. 26 1/8i7) ; Abu Bakr b. al-wasii1, who was n n.lly from ~Iarw (cl. 3:l0/932); Abu Ali FucJn.yl h.

Ab1Yl-Qasim Qushayri, as the aut.hor says (f. 2), ir not mentioned in the Risiila. (whose?), nor in the J:'abaqfU (whose, Sulami's or 'Abdu'l-l11h Afi.?ar(s?) 1, for the same reasons as Abu Sa'id h.

Among the shaykhsof Ira11 mcutionecl (f.2v) Sirri,.Tun.ay<l, Niirl, Il.m 'A~ii, etc. Sufi.a of Fars (f. 3v). They arc innumemble ; the author only can mention n) less than 200 of those who performed miracles, like A).unad b. Yal;iya, Abii'l-'Ahbas Shiriizi, Mu.l;u1.n11nad b. Khalil 8hirazI, Abt! 1\Ian~iir ShirazI, Abii Yusuf Y e.'qub ShiriizI, and their associates. Amongst them Abii 'Abdi'l-lah b. i\iul.111.nunad b. Khafl f ash-shiriizi has produced works (f. 4) ; he died in 371/981-2, in ShiraL. Abu Isl.uiq Ibrahim Sha.hryiir al-kb.zirllni has converted to Islamism seveml thousands of Gabrs ; he died in 126/1035. AbU 'Abdi'l-lah ~luhayn b. Al.11nn.d o.1-bay~iir (cl. 363/!17:~- 1).

After these early Sufi;; the author immediately mentions hi:i great-granclfather, Ruzbihan, the ' ShaHal1-i-Fars '. As the portion of the first bu. b of the book which is preserved in the present fragment is rather interesting and typical of it11 contents, style and language, it seems U8cful to give it here i'.n t:efniso. In the present quotation all the peculiarit.ies of orthography of the origim~l Manuscript are preserved o.s far as possible, an<l only olwious la1is11s culam are correcteil without special note. It is rc111arkable that the i<jafa. is very mrely marked both after a a.ncl ii., -such cases are exeept.iorn; ml;]wr than rule. It is diilicult to believe that the i1,afa wai,1 usually omitted in pronunciation. Another peculiar feature of'.ript is inconsistent use of rlh instead of d. Intervocalic d/i. appears to be not so frequent o.s dh at the end of the final syllable, both after IL long or short vowel. Also inconsistent is the USL' of the forms of the relative 1 It is dillicult to find whethl'r the o.uthor 1illuck s to the work, with tho t.itlr. o[ N'llrrc.'l-' 11/fl.111, dealing with tho 1ml1ject, pmborvud in I\ defective copy in tho Ilritieh!\luscum (Or. 249), und recently published with a Hu~im1 trnnslntion liy E.

12 GERALD AUNGIBR'S REPORT ON nmmay. TVitli an I11trod11clio-n aml Annotation.<; By Sm CHARLES FAWCETT. Introduction. Administration Reports a nmrkecl feature of officialdom in India., ancl may in<leccl be described as the bane of life for those who have t.he duty of compiling or reviewing them. Against the trouble nncl e)qicnse of their production is, however, to be eet off their utilit.y for stn.tistico.l and many other purposes ; and each of them generally contributes something to the stream of information culminating in the Report of the Moral, :Material and Economic Progress of India, which must be one of the oldest " Annuals " in existenc.e. In fo.ct the origin of such Administration Reports lies in much greater antiquity than is generally known or suspected. It mny almost be said t.o he coeval with the introduction of British rule in Bombay, the first EngliHb Colony in Indio., for the Instructions 1 issued in 1662 by King Charl~s II to Sir Abra.ham Shipnum; as the Governor-Designate of the Island after it wn.s handed over by the Portuguese, included a direction that he should "from time to time, as often as opportunity can he had, gi, e an nccount to us of the condition of our lrlancl and of the affairs and inhabit.ants thereof."

His successor, Gerald Aungier, has been 'veil called the " true foundl'r" of Bombay. He spent a month there in the early part of 16i0, in the course of which he dealt firmly with the serious <lissen~ions t.hat had broken out during Capt. Y 01mg's Deputy Govl'ruorship, and laid the foundations of proper Civil und.tudicio.l administration. B~1t he was unable in t.ha.t short period to carry out his extensive plans for the improvement of conditions on the ls1and, and his main work was done during his!mbsequent stn.y of over three years from June 1672 to September ln the interval between his two visits, the Deputy Governor 11ud his Council had failed to show anything Ii.kc the energy that cho.ractl'rized.aungier. Their" Consultation-Book" was "very thin" 2 and the Court of Directors complained of the " very brief and unsatisfactory" reports 3 submitted by them. The Court. gave orders in March 1G72 that "for the future we doe expect; and require a full and large Accompt of " all affairs on the 4 Aungier had the pen of a ready writer and needed no stimulus of this kind. He cert.n.inly gave the Court no reo.son to of any want of fullness or thoroughness in his reports and proceedings. In December 1672 he sent home a very long letter 5, which he describes 11 as " n. large Account of your Island Bombay", o.nd introduced the novelty of attaching separate reports by ea.oh member of his Council as to his particular " imployment " (or portfolio, as we would call it now). Almost exactly o. year later Aungier not only despatched the usual " General Letter " dealing o.t length with all current affairs affecting the company's trade and wellare in Bombay n.nd the various factories, over which he presided, but also "humbly 1 Sir William Hunter's History of British IndiG," Vol. II, p. 214; "Keigwin'.i Rebellion" by Rny and Oliver Stmchey, p. ll.

The Government of the Island now established is managed in this following order, a.c; it respects religion, the oivill authority, administration of justice and the Militia. Religion~ is obscnred ancl promoted by all the English in the purity and freedome of the Evangelicall doctrine used in England. The Lord's days are strictly observed iu the pious exercise of morning and evening prayer, and preaching of the word, which for want of a church 1 is performed in the Gallery of the Governor's house a.t the Fort. Churchwardens arc appoint~d chosen yearly, for examination of the lives and conversation of t.he people, taking notice of all disorders in religion, breach of the holy sabbath, prophanessc, swearing, drunkenuesse and other licentiousnesse, the offenders wherein are citecl and warned in every Session., 5 and when found guilty arc severely punished according to the nature of their crimes. 0 In tho week <la.yes morning and evening prayers duly per(ormed ; a.t solemnc times the Holy sacraments arc aclminist.rcd, and 1 This word origina.lly meant a light and swift galley for river work, wa.s extended later to larger v~.

38 34 Sir Charles Fa.wccll according to the emergency of 11.ffoircs, do.yes of publick fast and humiliation u.ncl of tlmnksgivin.g 1 arc set apa.rt by authority and reverently performed by the Congregation. The chicfe authority resides in t.he President and Councell of Surro.t, and in their absence in the Deputy Governor a.nd Counccll for the Islund Bombay. The President being now on Bombay, the offices of Government are thus administered ; the President employs his time in an universall and provident oversight over all the Island, strictly observing the proceedings of all officers and offices under him, as well military as civill, keeping them to t.heir respective dutys and execution of charges, without interfering or litigious clashing or intrenching the one upon the other to avoide confusion. He is also so seriously circumspect in endeavouring to keep peace, love and amity among the English themselves (which is his most difficult labour considering the turbulency a.ncl uncharitableness of some tempers) 2 as also between the English and the Inhabitants among themselves, divided in their sevcrall ca.'lts and interests. He tu.ices care to prevent all violence or disorders offered to the people in genera.ll from the English or Portuguese souldiers, to receive and answere petitions, seeing right and justice impartially administered to all. He also holds a constant laborious correspondence with all the neighbours Governments, to wit, the Moors, Sevagee and the Portuguese, whose Countrys enclosing and as it were shutting the Island Bombay, we arc forced to keepe o. faire yet troublesome understanding with them in their several! languages ; but the Portuguese give him 1 'l'hus a Tilanksgiving Day WILB appointo<l on St. Stophon's day, 1672, ~o oolobrot,o a victory of the English Fleet over tho Dutch. Auugier's description of tho Procession held on tho.t occo.aion is reproduced in Edwardes' Gazetteer, II, Groat trouble hnd been caused by dissontious among tho English on tho Island, and in a. later lotter (0.

Aungicr dealt with them with o. strong hand, and 1''ryor (i, 170) praises him for hnving knit " a disaffected and incongruoua " into " a bond of at least soeming friendship".

44 40 Sir Charles Fawcett by these ships, whcreunt-0 we humbly rcferr you (as to) what satisfaction he hath promil'led to give us for all that. he robbed a.t Rn.japore, I as well from the Compn.ny ns from particular men ; wherefore we intreat. yonr order how it shall be proportioned when we doe receive the sum agreed on, out o( which we shall deduce nnd mnke good unto your account whnt e~qiences we have bin at. for manadging and concluding trerlt.y. The remainder is to be proportioned between yourseh es ancl the person!! concerned in said losse. We have already advised that in plundering Citty of Hubily, he hath robbed about 8,liOO pagodas 2 of your Estate there also, but. he will acknowledge noe such thing, and will not make satisfaction for it, in regs.rel there were noc English there to own u.nd protect s1~icl goods ; yet we hope in time to bring him to some composition and allowance for that also, for he is much a friend to our nation, if to any, and exceedingly desires our trade o.go.ine in his ports. And in trut.h his Ports of Rajapore, Dabull, Kelcy, &c., arc of exceeding and indi11pensable necessity for the trade of Bombay, for they will in time when your Fn.ctory>i are well settled there, yield great quant.itys of goods of all sorts proper for Europe, cheaper then we have them at Surra.t or other places ; whereof we have now sent some musters:i for your perusa.11, the prizes~ whereof are charged as they will stand in brought to Bombay, being about 25 per cent. dearer tl1en they ma.y be had at Ro.japore. Besides we have hopes that the trade into Sevagees Country will consume quantitys of Europe commollitys and particularly be uscfull for consumption of copper pice, and Tinnys or Tinn Buclgrookesr. in great qui.ntitys, which will pro\ e of noc meane benefit and advantage to your mint, and (save?) 1 The l\fohrattas had raided Hui.iii and ltajapur and destroyed property in tl1e Company's factories o.t those places, I.Jut it was not till 1084 that Capt..

These and many other com1idcmtiom1 for brevity's s:drn omitted caused us the 11ooncr to h1111ten our treaty of Peace with him, which we trust yom Honours will confirmc and well approve of, accepting it as a well pleasing 11nd aclv:rnta.gious service to you.

In such we as formerly advised doc humbly beg your order to doe you right by force and not otherwise ; but in this your Honours may glory t.jmt you luwe brought Sevagec to tcarmcs of restitution for his robbery of yom Bstate, which neither the great :Mogull nor the King of Vizaporc nor the Portuguese were ever yet able to doc, 11.\1 whose Count.rys he hath suffioiently robbed.

But Alvaro Pires, finding his honour concerned, full of that pride ancl subtlety inherent in the Portuguese Fidalgoes of India, though he was in greatest fault, took a contrary course ; for inst.edd of submitting himsclfc he defyes your aut.hority, clisownes himscue a subject of his l\fajcsty or that he owed any fealty to him or service to you, though he before taken the onth of fidelity, 1 and which was worse he makes his applications to the Gcnern.lls of the French 2 (and) Portuguese fleets, to the Captain of Basseen and the Vice Roy of Goa demanding justice of them, casting most sea.njalous reproaches against the Nation and against your Govermucnt in the presence of the French Admirall, and all the Portuguese fidl\lgoes. Whereupon we found ourselves necehsita.tcd to call him to n publick tryall,3 for tlw more publick vindication of the justice nnd modera.tion of your Government, and the integrity of our proceeding ; but he not appearing as clisowning a.uthority, we thought fit, to proceed to sentence, which was this, that for his deserting the lslt\nd in time of danger, disobedience to nuthority bre1lch of severall Proclamations, ingratitude and notoriously false sca.n<la.ll<i on your Honours 11nd the nation, nncl your authority here, he wo.s rendered 1 He took this oath on 2:1rd September 1670 (0.

52 BRIEF NOTES Pcinclwmaldi8alxla. in Rajalarangi1Ji While dealing with the Copper Plate Iruicriptions of Bhii.skara Yarman King of Kamariipa. (Cir A.D.), I came a.cross the word Paiichamahafabda a.nd was in quest of its mco.ning. I found the word in one of the Gupta. Inscriptions of Dr. Fleet, where (at p. 296 ct.~cq, of Corp. lnscr. Indicarum Vol. III), the late Doctor dealt with the term at great length ; and what I could gather from his note was that the term signified b.ig sounds of five musical instruments (though not the same five everywhere) n.nd that the personage who got this nppellation (1'..f!., was allowed to make public appeamncc with the band composed of those live musical instruments which of course made a great noise (mahasa.bda). I also ~ross the tem1 (Panchanmhafabda) in Rajatara.ngiQI of Kahlano.: and Dr. A. (now Sir Aurel) Stein in his " Ko.hlano."s Chronicles of the Kings of Kasmir" (an annotated translation of the Ra.ja.tarangiQi) rendered Panchama.hii.snbda. (in verse MO of the 4th To.ranga.) into English, as " Five offices distinguished by the term " Great" (p. 133, Vol. I): by which he meant five such posts as' Ma.hapmtihii.ra, etc., etc.' Dr. Krishna Svami Aiyo.ngar of l'\laclra.s, however, in an article headed "Panch111naha5abda. in Raja.tarangii;iI " published in the Journal of the Bombay Branch of the H.oyo.1 Asiatic Society, (Vol. I, N. S. No. 2, 192[;, pp ) has disapproved of the interpretation of Dr. Stein, and with much ingenuity has demonstrated that even here PanchamahiiSo.bda signified five great t1oundi; of mut1ico.l instruments and nothing else. I am of opinion that the learned gentleman has not been correct in his interpretation. The word Pancharno.hiifabdn. occurs thrice in the same Taranga (IV) of Rajat.arang4J,i in verses 140, 512 and 680: and it is a pity Dr. Aiyangar did not apparently see the other passages, especially verse 680 ; he has only confined him;oelf to verse 140 (and verses before and afier it).

A collect.ion of U2 eont.empornry documents is to be wclcome1l by all Rtudent.s of t.he history not only of Ceylon but evnn of India ; for these lette::s often refer to t.he affairs of the continent, specially those of the Western Coast. 'l'he letters critically cdit,ed with copious and erudit.c noter. But wlmt chiefly enhances the value of t.his work is t.hc historical int.rocluct ion written by Fr. Sclmrhamnll'r. The period selected by him ( rn:rn-1550) is one of t.hc most! periods in the history of U1'ylon. The Portuguese were formally calle1l to Ceylon by King Bhuvancka. Balm, the king of KoHe, who clu.imcd ovcrlordship over tl1c whole island from very ancient timc B, and who is styled hy the Portuguc i;c "t.he King of Ceylon." Hitt hrothcr ~liiyadunnc, kin;! of Sitavalrn, w1mtcd to dispossess Bhnva1wlrn of his kingdom. On this oceasiou the PortuguPBe entered ~nylon in grcn.t numbers to aid Hhuva11elrn. Tl1is was t.he lu ginning of n scrier of drn.matic cv1~ut8 in wl1ich t.lw kingh of.foffna, aud Kandy Look a prominent imrt. In thn meantime Bhuvanelm, in view of the increasing power of the Portuguese in the i~larnl, broke his n.llegiancc wit.h them n.nd an tl!liauce with l\'tayinlunnc against the King of Kandy aud the l)ortugucse. The latter sent two considerable expeditions to their ally, the King

57 o( Kan<ly, hut finally t.his ruler won ovpr hy the threats and admonitions o[ Blrnvaiwlrn Bahu, joinccl t.he nntimml cause against; t.hc inva(fors. This increase of po\wr of l-hc King of Kotte was viewed with suspicion by his r Jlaya<l11nnc, who finally turnrcl to t.he Porl.ugnesc for hrlp, and rcceivcrl from t.lwm a substantial incrrase of t.errit.ory at. the expe11sps of Ilhuvancka. The latter 011 the ot.hcr hand was not idle. With 11plcncli<l promises, which afterwards were not always fulfilled, he finally obtained a Port.11- guese army<it. Maya<l11n11e, who was n.ctun.lly deprivcrl of his kingdom of Sit.avakn. ancl withdrew to t.hc mountn.i1111 o[ Dc11avalrn. 'fhis triumph of the Port.ug11csc encouraged them f;o proceed against the King of Kn.ncly at the special rcq11m1l; o( Ilhumndm. But. the Kandy ruler, S<!crrtly a<lvised by the treacherous Bhuvanclm, inflicted a vrry 1wrious defcaj. upon the Portuguese. During all t.his time the enmity bet.ween Bhuv:rneka and his hrot.hrr l\fayiidunne continued, when eventually t.hc former wns kilbl by a gunshot, perhaps by n hireling of l\layadunne. The Portuguese placed his young grandson, Prince Dharmapn.ln., on the throne of KotF~ arnl declared war against Mayadunnc\ Dlmrmapala's father, who had been imprisoned by the Portuguese, made goocl his escape not long, ancl bcga.n a relent.less war n.gainst these invaders of t.hc island. Such is the gloomy encl of this series of intrigues, embassies, promises, wars and murdcrn, which chn.rnctcrisc the history of f;ltc Portuguese in Ceylon. Fr. Schurlrn.mmcr has given us a very int.cresting account of this short but eventful period. This from the letters now published by him for the lirst time, n.nd supplemented by mn.ny other documents-references to which will be found iu his crudito notes. A very exhaustive bibliography precedes his historical 111urativc, n.ncl a. complete indpx: renders the work most useful t.o the scholars of Ceylon and India. Fr.

It. is a fit.ting int.roclnction to this work, as it enables tlw reader t.o apply the knowledge dcrivecl therefrom to the monument.s of Ajanthii. The volume Jiroper is cliviclcd into 8 parts: beginning with the locntion, route, general clescript.ion n.hout t.he eonclition of the caves, t.licir carvings ancl sculpture and the frrscoc paintings; t.he latter is cliscubbecl from various points, like outline, colour, brush, anatomy, perspecth e history, women's nncl men's garments, ornaments of women nnd those of men with weapons, renlit.y, mq1rcssion and icfoal.

Jn nn nppencli.x, there nre quotation.q given throwing ligl1t on ihe age of these r.lwes ancl the volume ends with an exhaustive index. The volume is profusely illustrated nnd contains 80 half-tone photos printed on urt paper, nnd these by themselves form n grent feature of thir work nnd heighten its value, especially when it is remembered that tho Chief is himself a great artist. In fad the photogrnphical representation evinces accuracy nnd the author's discriminating taste.

Literature,'' ranging over n. wide field, from grn111mo.rnnd philolog-y to medicine, mysticism, magic and witchcraft is clismihsecl with a conclru;ive proof that the voluminous '1.Titin~s arc of a later <late ; and the,\gilstya tradition iu la.ter Tamil Lit.rmture ha'l shared the same fate. Deilication and hero-worship arc not uncommon in the South, and Agastyo. was raised to the mnk of a. divinity, and tcmpleh to him were built at Kolhapura ancl Agastisvararh in South Trn.mncore. Like Dhruva he is immortalised by the a.ssignmeut of a place in the sky as a brillinnt 8ta.r, Canopus. Fi1UL1ly, he arrives at the conclusion that, the Agast.ya tradition breaks clown completely, hecnui;c there nre iul.ernal contra.1lictio11:> in it, and Lherc is no unbroken conl.inuily of the tradition with the past.

We hear of t,he tribe as Ahhi in the VctlaH, aml as N agtl in the imbscttlll'llt literature a.nd at the time of Rujatarnngini. The tribe 111\H hecome mythical. The rl'hiilence of the tribe is much more so, ult.hough historians ]mvc t.ried to at.tribute ]ocu.tionh to Patala which accoriling to Home wm1 near the mouths of the lnclm1, where Alexa1ulcr the Great went, and Homctimes to the extreme Houth taking it even to Ceylon. Tlw Nag l somehow or other is mixed up with the cult of 8a.ivism. Siva. the great irrcconcilu.hlc deity ih imagined to lmve dcpc111fotl for hih ornaments on the N agas (lil.'rpenth).

'l'he portrait of Dr. Blum Daji we owe to the munificence of ::\Ir. L. S. Dabholkn.r, a member, n.ncl that of Pn.ndit Bhagwanlal Indraji to :\Ir. V. P. Vaidya, one of our Vice-Presidents, and J\Ir. T. S. Vaidya, while thn.t of Sir James J\fockintosh, o. copy of the original in the Nn.tiono.1 Portrait Gallery, London, was purchased from donn.tionh specially given by members of o.ll communities. On the l l th J\farch the Society bacle farewell to Sir Charles Fawcett, its President for 1!)28, on his retirement from the Bench of the High Court n.nd from India. The occasion w1i.s marked by an At Home given to Sir Charles and Lady Fawcett, at which about 100 membern were present, and expression wa.'i given to the very great advantage which the Society had derived from Sir Charles's occupancy of the Presidential chair cmd to the sense of its loss n.t his departure. The Society unanimously elected Shams-ul-Ulama Dr. Jivanji J. Modi, n. Vice-President and one of its oldest and most dititinguished members, to be President for the year. We regret to h:we to note the passing of two members of the Society who phlyed a lt~rge part in its lifo and schol1~rship and were well known to members. The Re\r, Dr. Robert Scott became a member in 1882, was a member of the Managing Committee from 1893, Hou. Secretary from 1902 to 1905, Vice-PreHident from 1908, and Pm1ident in He retired from his Professorship 0 English in Wilson College nncl from India in 1918 n.nd theren ter lived mainly in Edinburgh, but kept up his connection with India, ;\nu Bombay in particular, through correspondence!lnd was very gratified at hih election n.s Fellow of the Society in His wu.!l a figure well known and very much loved and respected in Bomb1ly for over thirty years. 'l'he second name missed from our roll i!l that of Dewan Bahadur P. B. Joshi, who was n member of the Managing Committee in the 1923 to 1925, n.ud is best remembered u.s the principal coadjutor of Sir Jumes Campbell in t.he compilation of the Bomba.y Gazetteer. In recognition of his great services to learning, a specin.l prehentn.~ion 6

70 GG Annual Re1)()rl of t.hc C;m1plwll ~fomorial Gold Medal wns made to Dewan Bahadur.Joshi in Hl23. He was active np to the last in the advancement of the cause of knowledge of Bomb:Ly and its history. A form of a.grecmcut bet ween I.he Society and the Prince of Wales Museum covering the tmnsfer of the Society's archroological, g~ological and copper-plate collections to the Museum for display has, after long discw>sion, been approved by both bodies. It ib to be regretted that for the first time in the Society's history, a member ]ms had to be sued in the courts for recovery of books not returned despite many ca.lhi and every possible private effort to arrange the matter satisfactorily. The Society won the case in the Small Causes Court and the execution of the decree is proceeding. In the coming year two more similar cases are being carried to court-a sign of the times which scarcely encourages us to allow easier terms of membership of the Society, as certain well-intentioned members of the public desire. A statement of receipts and expenditure is attached. It will be noticed that we have been able to finish the year without the anticipated deficit. Whilst this is so far satisfactory, it should be borne in mind that we have only been able to do this by utilising the balance of the Contingent ll'und. It is, therefore, necessary that efforts be again made to increase the membership, or at least maintain it at its present strength, otherwise we shall once more be faced with a deficit. Every endeavour has been made to minimise the establishment charges and these nre still being very carefully watched in order to avoid any unnecessary expenditure, but it is diilicult to see how any great reduction can be expected in this direction without affecting the efficiency of the library.

Canm, one of our Vice-Presidents, presiding at the Iranian Rection meeting of our Centennry, had expressed his joy sn.ying: " No other institution in \\'cstern India ho.s rcaehecl the vcucmblc age of a hundred years." Thanks t-0 God, we can now say with greo.tcr joy. tlmt!mt year we reached the more wrwmble age of 1:2G yearii. But the value of the life of o. Society, as that of an individual, is not to be mel\surcd by the yeo.n; of its life, but by its ar.tivitier. :N"apolPon is said to have told his brot.lwr.jerome, that he woul1l rather like to sec his brother die nt an early age tlmn live a long life without activit.y. Looking to the history of the work of our Society during the past 2G years as read before us at the In.._.,t Anniversary gathering by our Secretary, we find that unclcr tho;ere<l circumstances of there 21) year11 seveml other InstitnteH, which we all welcome as our collabornt:ors, u.risen 1mlong UH. Looking to the fact, that thus the results of the studieh of our litemry workers are divided o.mong more than one Society, I think we may su.y that we have done pretty well and t.hat we lmve well-nigh kept up our But quantity sho11ld not he t.hc nmin criterion. Quality of paperr is the most important t11ing. To judge of that, out of curiosity, I spent this month several hours in going over our 22nd volume, which is the volume ne:xi aftrr our Centenary volume and took clown notes, giving a glimpse of our work with my observations during the period eovered hy t.hat. volume, nncl I find that we have 20 learned papers in that. volume covering various branchl's of Oriental Studies. Again, in t.his matter of comparison, we must bear in mind that latterly, we have restricted our work of research to a certain e:xient, and the nims nn<l objects of our Society since its foundation have, to some extent, changed. Sir Jam es l\inckintosh founded our Society, in response, as it were,

81 Bomba.y Brandt of tlw Royal.11f iat c Society 7 7 to a. demand from the learned world of Europe. He, in his innugnrnl speech, speaks of himself n.s " the representative of the curiosity of Europe". It was in England, before he came to Bombay, thn.t he hnd formc'd the idea of founding this Society. He 1:1pea.ks of his work iu that <lirl'ction as a "mission". From the way in which he spoke of the work of Sir William Jones in Calcut.ta in founding the Asia.tic Society of Bengal, it seems that he came with the determined object. of becoming the William Jones of Bombay. He spoke of the object of the Society's inquiries to be reducible to two classes, 1'iz., PhyHical and Mom!, using the words in a very broad sense. Among physical inquiries, he included Natural History, ~Iinernlogy, llota.ny, Meteorology a.n<l lastly Medicine. Now, we have, since scvcrnl, left inquiries in these physical sciences t,o various other Societies o.ncl Associations. Again recently the Science Congress, held every year in the different cities of India, ch aws workers in those lines. So, our work is restricted to the second division, 11iz., moral, which word Mackintosh m1ed not in the restricted sense in which we ordinarily use it but in the sense, in which it is " contra-distinguished from physical". 1 So, looking to that fa.ct also, we have been doing fairly well. But this satisfo.ction!lhoul<l not lead us to rest upon our laurels. There is one thing which should ask us to be more alert than the workers of the l!)th century. They to work compo.rntively in a barren field, with few resources and materials at their disposal. But, now, we have more resources and ma.tcrials at our disposal to draw help from. Again, we nowadays a proportionately larger number of workerh in various lines whose work in their!incl! comes readier t.o our help than in the case of our predecessors. Now coming to our work, during the past year, as said in our Report, we lmvc pullishl'cl together two numbers. Nos. 1 and 2 of Vol. IV of the Nt w Series, containing in all 9 learned papers. The first. paper is on' Pancha.ta.ntra Studies' by l\fr. A. VcnkatasubLiah.

Tho story of the Seven Greek philosophers oft.ho Universit.y of Athens is well known. On being deprived of the freedom of speech in their own country, they arc said to have gone to the Court of Noushirwan of whom they spoke as "a philosopher on the thronc". 2 His o.nd are said to have, at one time, charmed many great men on our side.

83 Bombay Branch of the Royal Asfiat ic Sodety 79 of Ko.u~ilya.'!I Arthn.siistra (written in a.bout :tw B.C.) by Dr. Shamn. Shastri, to whom our Society has awarded its Campbell medal for his discovery, that work also is brought into use to support the above view. Our author says that fire-arms were used by the nncients but these fire-arms were nothing like our modern guns in which gunpowder is used for explosion, but they were eome instruments from which arrows with burning rags or something like these were thrown townrds the enemieh. After critically examining the whole question from various pointa of view, our author concludes that gunpowder 'vns not. known to the ancient Hindus. Int.his connection I beg to dro.w the attention of our members to an article in the and West of September 1919 on "The Ancient Indin.n Navy" by Mr. S. K. Swami. The o.uthor so.ya that the art of building ships existed in India from ancient times and Indians went to Germany and even to England about 800 years before Allred the Great. Thie author o.lso says that in the 4th century A. C. they mo.nufo.ctured Gunpowder here and ueed guns. Indio.ns had guns in the time of Alexander the Grent. The ships of those times called baggla or the budyerow were 7 1 feet long, 25 feet broad and U! feet deep. Their tonnage was 150 tons. Mr. V. S. Bakhle's paper on the" Satavahanas and the contemporary Ksa.trapas" suggests, here and there, some points of comparison with the institutions of ancient Iran. Mr. Bakhle begins his paper by saying : " The system of governing during the period wo.s certainly mono.rohical" (p. 39). That wae the case in ancient Iran also. It seeme that, in the early period of all Aryan or Indo-Germnnic States, thnt wns the cnse. But their monarchy was " limited monarchy". If there was any despotism, that was of Inter growth. In the times of what we may call the pre-historic history of Iran, i.e., the history of times anterior t-0 that of which the history is determined by chronology, there was limited monarchy. Loyalty to the ruling monarch was the ruling characteristic, but the loyalty was not blind loyalty. As E.aid by Mr. Bakhle, though there wns no " orgnnised institution of state to voice forth the people's view", (ibid) still, the people " had a voice in the administration and enjoyed loco.i self-government". (ibid). I think that, that wo.s true of mo.ny branches of the o.i;icient

84 so.a:nn_ual Report A.ITnn or ludo-germanic strnk That was true of Iran a1ul that w~s true of n.noient Gernmny and even of 11.ncient Engl11.nd. In this connection I will draw t.hc attention o[ mcmberfl to my paper on "The Ancient. Germans. Their History, Const.itution, Religion, Manners and Customs", rend before the Anthropological Society of Bomlmy.1 In the case of ancient Germany, we not only see something like t.hc " Nigamasabhii or the Tomnhip Corporation" (ibid), mentioned in the K~nharata inscription at Nn.sik, but parallels of the customs of Snti, 2 prohibition of widow marriage, 1uid of intcr-mnrriage 11s prevalent in India. Of the Iuclinn administru tive divisions, referred to Ly Mr. Bakhlc, viz., De9n or R.ii~tra at the head, followed by Vi~11ya, Aharo. aml P11thn or Pn.thaka, we have a parallel in ancient Iran in its division of nmllnn., viya, zn.ntu and clangbu, the administrative heads of which were spoken of as mnanopaiti, vinmiti, zantu-paiti ond danghu-paiti. The wives of these administrators n.iro held some status in Society and were spoken of with respect as nmano-pathni, viy-pathni, zantu-patbni and clanghupathni. Mr. Bnkhlc speaks of ~laj].q.ala as being used later on, for Desn or R.a~tra. We see this in the cosc of the town of Nnosari, the head11uarters of the Parsec priesthood, which is spoken of in later documents as Nag mandu.i. Among the officers of the Court, there was the Lekhaka, whom M. Scnart and others took to be, in the literal sense of the word, a mere writer, but ~Ir. Bak.hie to.kes ns!'a high ministerial officer" analogous to our modern " Secretary to Government. ". I think he is right., because we find from the Shiihniimeh, that a navisu.ndeh, which, like lekhaka, means n writer, held a high poi!t in the royal courts of ancient Iran. Among the military officers, the Sena-pati, referred to in the paper, corresponds to the Scpah-bud of the Iranians. On the subject of the four varnus, we read in the paper : " \Vhatever the condition of the four varj].as in ancient. times, however titriet the restrictions about eonnubium and comentality 1 Journal of U.10 Ant.hropologicnl Society of Dombu.y, Vol X., pp l'ide my Anthropological Papers Part II, pp J' ic/e my Pn per on "Tho Antiquity of the Custom of Sn ti", Journal of the Anthropological Society of Bombay, Vol. XIII, pp. -U2-24.

(p. '.HI.) These foreign k~atmpas or satmps were from the direction of Iran and so, possibly, they helped or encouraged the amalgamation. I will here draw the nttcntion of members, interested in the question, to my paper " "\Vliet.her there was Caste in Iran" 1. In ancient lrnn, there wus something like o. caste system, only as fo.r as the different profemiious or trades were concerned, but not in the matter o{ intcrdining or intcrmurriage. So, tho foreign K~atrnpn.s from the direction of Iran, perhaps, encouraged hero what they had in their own country. Mr. Y. R. Gupte's po.per on "Archroologicnl and Historical Research. Its scope in the So.tarn District" is interesting from several points o{ view. Mr. Gupte very properly says, that' Arohmology has of h~tc attracted the learned world". Thanks to the energy of Sir John :Marshall, whose with that of Lord Curzon who procnrerl for us a John i\'iurslrnll, will be long remembered. Wo reap excellent harvests in the fields cultivated by the Science of Arohroology. This pn.per crc1ites, among general reo.ders, a tl\ste for u.rohroology, which Mr. Gnptc very properly explains in its very broad sense of " the science of untiquitiea or a. treatise on n.ncicnt usa.ges, customs, architecture n.ud flo forth" (p. 82.) So one can be n. little of an n.rchroologist without holding or directing a spade for excavations. In this connection I beg to draw the attention of members to a great field for n.rchroological work in the Salsctte which is almost next door to us. "\Yhilc having o. glimpse into the work of our Society during the 25 ycurs, looking into the first volume of that period (Vol. XXII), I read in the Annuo.l Report of 1905, thl\t our Society had secured " three Hindu figures of black stone of about tho 9t.h century A.D. from Pnrjll.pur, Salsette ".

Many of the curtoms and manners oft.lie Hebrews were similar to those of tlw n.ncient Iranians with whom t.liey Imel come into close contact. 'l'he n.bove is an i1111t.iu1ee of tlmt kind.

In the mutter of the closer cont.act of t.hc Hebrews with the ancient Iro.ninne, I may draw the attention of members to an interesting paper by Prof. Uelwtsek in one of our former Journals, entitled "Contact' of the J~s with, Babylonians, nnd Pcrsinrn, from the Division of the HPhrew Monarchy into two kinglloms (ll.c. 9i5) till the Entrance of Alexander t.he Great into J erusalt m (B.C. 333) nnd a view of Jewish Ci,rilization". 4 Prnf.

This part of the pa.per will, I think, he found interesting for our modern ]awyers in their study oi the present marriage customs. Prof. I~zel.iel refers to the ancient Assyri1ms as having somo mn.rri1\ge customs similar to those of the Hebrows. I think some parallels may be found with those of the ancient Iranians. The Parsecs hnve an o]d Pahlavi book named "MacligA.n-i-Hnzar Dadistlin ". I had the pleasure of publi.illing it in facsimile with an Introduction in 1901, under tho auspices of tho Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy Translation Fund in tho hands of the 'fnmtees of the Punchayet. Tho TrUBtees aro now publishing o. tramdation of this treatise by Mr. Sohrab J. Bulse.ra. This translation will be of use to Prof. Ezekiel for some parallels and I think that Mr. Bu.ISllra. will o.lso bo benefited by closrly studying Prof. Ezekiel's paper l'.n<l the original texts referred to. WI.tat Prof. Ezekiel says about a minimwn sum of 200 denati i having boon fi...xod for a virgin reminds one of the modern Ashirwll.4 or Blessing ceremony of marriage among the Parsecs, the senior oiliciating priest makes o. mention of 2000 dinars of pure white silver and two in dirams of red gold of Nishaporo (coinage) (do hazii.r cli.nii.r elm o safid avizak va do deherum-i zari-sorkh i Shehr-i Nishii.puri). I think this mention is a relic of an old Ircmin.u custom, whereby the bride-groom fixecl for the bride a certain payment-en.ii it a dowry or marriage settlement-and the above sum was either tho minimum or the ma.ximmn, more likely the lu.ttcr. Prof. Ezekiel snys thnt " Polygamy wns looked upon with clisfr.vour by the prophets and the scribes". But, in spite of that, it prevailed to some extent, and he, with the authority of Whewoll says that "polygamy among the Jews, ceased after the return from t.he Babylonian exile" (p. 108). This mo.y be pointed a,san i.nato.noe of t.he influence of Iranians at Babylon.
