INTRODUCTION
I
It
was some time
iri
1947-soon
after my joining
the
Departmentof
History-that
I took courage in both hands
and
requested ProfessorHabib
to
publish all his articles in one volume. Professor Habib likedthe .idea
but
referred to two difficulties: first,
he had
)10
off-printsof his articles with him; secondly,
he
would
Iikcto
revise
the
articles.
but
was
not
sure
if
he
could find time for this revision. I submitted
that
I had collected all his
artici~s
and that
arrangcllient could bemade for getting thelli typed. Professor
Habib
put
Mr
Nazir (histypist) in touch with me.
He
borrowed one article every week
and
typed
it
out. I compared the typescript with
the
original
and
passed
it
on
to
Professol' Habib for revision. Hardly three or four articleswere typed
that Mr
Nazir .suddenly left for Pakistan
and the
workcame to a standstill
and
could never
be
resumed.
Off
and
on Ireminded Professor Habib
and he
promised to re-start
it
when therewas some leisure during the summer vacations. Vacation followedvacation
and
year followed year
but
·Professor Habib could
not
resuniethe work
and
whenever I hroached the suhjcct he said witha typical touch of sl!yness
that
next vacation would be devoted
ta
this work
and that
I would have to he with him through the vacation.But
that
vacation
t;Jever
came.
We
worked together on
the
fifthvolume of the
Comprehensive History
of
India
for three long years
~nd
whqn the
book
appeared in print, Professox Habib was veryhappy
and
excited. I thought
it
was
the
opportnno moment to obtainhis approval for the pl1hlication of his articles in a hook form. Thistime
he
agreed to give up the idea
of
.revision.,.--'-I
knew.
he
could. never revise any article.
The
moment I gave him an article writtei1some
1.5
or
20
years back,
he
started rewriting
the
whole thing.
f
biew
that
it
was impracticable.
lIe
filially agrecd that
allth0m~ticles
could
be
published
as
they were written
hut he
would write a longintroduction covering. the entire range.
At
his instance I wrote to
