Kiraṇāvalī, the journal of Sanskrit Research foundation, is published with the intention to keep up the rich academic tradition of Thiruvananthapuram in the area of Sanskrit learning. The journal covers contemporary trends in the study of Sanskrit and allied subjects and problems in methodology. Contemporary Indology surpasses classical Indology in all aspects. The new trends in social sciences and cultural studies influenced ‘new Indology’ to a great extent. Philosophy, literature, grammar, fine arts etc. were analysed and discussed in the light of new ideologies. In this milieu we are trying to reconsider our traditional knowledge systems to make them transparent.

We are inviting excellent original research papers from scholars. Kiraṇāvalī is a double-blind, peer reviewed journal. Eminent academicians and experts form our review panel. We are expecting co-operations from all.
