Excerpt from Rama's Later History; Or Uttara-Rama-Charita: An Ancient Hindu Drama, Critically Edited in the Original Sanskrit and Prakrit With an Introduction and English Translation and Notes and Variants, Etc
Within the last decade, the West and the Far East have become virtually near neighbours. From the responsibilities of such neighbourhood there is no escape. We must have to do with the East, and as members of the world-family of nations we must treat the East aright. To treat the people of the East aright, we must respect them; and to respect them, we must know them. And in order that we may know them, competent scholars must study their history and make it accessible to the Occident. The business of the Orientalist is something that is in Vital relation with the practical and political needs of to-day.
