Jadunath Sarkar

Jadunath Sarkar ON the death of G V Raman your paper carried an excellent editorial comment (November 28, 1970, p 1906). But it is surprising that you wrote nothing on the occasion of the birth centenary of Jadunath Sarkar (b 1879; d 1958), which was observed only in Calcutta on December 10. If Ramasi was a complete scientist, Jadunath was no less a complete historian in the accepted sense of the term. An acknowledged authority on Mughal and Maratha history, Jadunath Sarkar never sacrificed his ideal of truthful portrayal of history. It is now universally accepted that his works heralded a new era hi scientific historiography for India as did Ranke's "History of the Latin and the Germanic People" for Europe. Noted for his unsurpassed intellectual capacity, sense of balance and, above all, moral integrity, he had no peer among his countrymen in the field of historical research and critical interpretation.
