Overview:

The author has brought into focus the pioneering work on interpretation (Mimamsa Sutras or Rules of Interpretation) produced more than 2500 years ago by rishi Jaimini - an example of wisdom par excellence. Mimamsa runs into 2668 sutras spread over 12 Chapters and encompasses all interpretational principles evolved in the West and much more.

These rules are ideally applicable to the entire ambit of legal interpretation civil, criminal and statutory texts. Despite these qualities the Sutras remained in oblivion, by and large till now because of it being in Sanskrit and voluminous.

However basing on the authentic English translation of the entire Mimamsa text by Pandit Mohan Lal Sandal (originally published in 1923) now in public domain (on internet) the author has been able to codify the Sutras into 109 Rules of interpretation.

It is hoped that this will reduce our dependence on Maxwell and others and substantively affect the quality of legal work having the benefit of our ancient thought process.

This book may prove to be cornerstone for the Bar and the Bench in their day to day working as also a foundation for the law students.
