Dnyaneshwar Agashe is a name that has made a mark in diverse fields. He was well-known across Maharashtra as a successful industrialist, a reputed banker, and an able cricket administrator. But this is a collection of articles which presents him in a completely new light. His friends, colleagues, and family shed light on many interesting and hitherto unknown facets of his personality. This English translation is the second edition of this festschrift; published on the occasion of the 80th birth anniversary of my grandfather, Dnyaneshwar Agashe; published in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the first edition’s publication in 2002. The first edition was published under the title पुत्र विश्वस्ताचा : गौरव ग्रंथ – ज्ञानेश्वर आगाशे षष्टयब्दिपूर्ति निमित्त (Putra Viśvastācā : Gaurava Grantha – Jñāneśvara Āgāśe Shashṭyabdipūrti Nimitta) in Marathi by the Dnyaneshwar Agashe Felicitation Committee (ज्ञानेश्वर आगाशे गौरव समिती; Jñāneśvara Āgāśe Gaurava Samitī) in celebration of my grandfather’s 60th birthday on April 17, 2002, with the ISBN 9781532345944. Putra Vishwastacha (Putra Viśvastācā) was an honorific that translates from Marathi to English as The Trustee’s Son, originating in the honorific of Vishwasta (Viśvasta), or The Trustee, given to my great-grandfather Chandrashekhar Agashe (1888–1956). The Dnyaneshwar Agashe Felicitation Committee in April 2002, was comprised of the late Mr. Sharatchandra Belvalkar, Mr. Taraprakash Vartak, and Mr. Ramesh Barve,whose determination and perseverance in the organisation, edition, compilation, and execution of the first edition was a significant and triumphant accomplishment. The publishers of this second edition acknowledge with immense gratitude the due diligence of these kind sirs, and seek to recognise and honour their enterprise with this renewed publication. My grandfather died on January 2, 2009, aged 66. The tone and tense of the essays embodied in this publication have been translated as they were, to preserve the integrity of their authors’ meaning and intentions at the time of writing.
