(eventual ERRATA and) CORRIGENDA/ADDENDA:

****************************

Dear Indology mailing list members,


a new IFP publication has appeared,
under the leadership of Bruno DAGENS
who was an EFEO (École Française d'Extrême-Orient) "scientific member" 
for 17 years

"http://www.efeo.fr/biographies/notices/dagens.htm"

(before becoming a "professeur" at "Paris 3" university)
[He is currently retired, due to age limits in France]

It appears as part of a new TENTATIVE collection
named after the late Jean Filliozat who was the EFEO director for 21 
years. SEE:

"http://www.efeo.fr/biographies/notices/filliozat.htm"

All that is reassuring because it shows that François Gros's 
FRANK/UNDIPLOMATIC "juvénile" diagnosis found in the pages 47-81 of the 
(green) report for the 75th anniversary of the EFEO was sound !

It is a good thing for France to be involved in Southern Indian literatures.

(François GROS himself later became an EFEO director)

     Institute of Pondicherry since 1985. Under his current research
