In addition to the numerous lists which have been recently posted on
the Indology list by Jim Cocks and Dwight Holmes, I would like to
inform all scholars of South Asian subjects, in particular those who
are stationed in Canada of another.
The South Asian list has been set up in conjunction with SAC-CASA, the
South Asian wing of the Canadian Asian Studies Association. The list
is aimed at providing information of scholarly events in Canada related to the
area, as well as exchanges of information amongst both students as
well as more advanced scholars.

Subject: INDIAN JEWISH FEMALE SKTIST(S)
A patron asking for information on Indian Jewry wanted the name
and address of an Indian Jewish woman working on Sanskrit at the
Maharajah Sayajirao University of Baroda, one with a name one
would take to be Jewish. A computer search based on a hunch led
me to Esther Solomon, though from the places of publication of
her works I wonder if she lives in Ahmedabad rather than Baroda.
I seem however to remember another Indian Jewish female scholar
works or worked on Jainism and Prakrit. (The works of Prof.
Solomon in the Library of Congress focus more on Hindu
philosophy.) Does this ring a bell with anyone? Does anyone
have an address for Dr. Solomon or the hypothetical other
scholar? We are not entirely sure that either of them is Indian
by birth rather than by long residence or naturalization. The
Baroda scholar was supposed to have retired in the last few
Thanks for your assistance.
