It gives me immense pleasure to write the Foreword to this Special Dedication Issue of Jñānābha in honour of Dr. R. C. Singh Chandel, who is now a retired member of the teaching faculty in the Department of Mathematics of Dayanand Vedic Post-Graduate College at Orai in the Province of Uttar Pradesh in India, on the occasion of his seventy-fifth birthday.
My close professional association with Dr. Chandel dates back to the year 1971 when he almost single-handedly launched and founded this 50-year-old journal. My personal as well professional friendship and editorial collaboration with Dr. Chandel has developed remarkably ever since the establishment of Jñānābha.
Finally, on my own behalf as well as on behalf of the members of the Jñānābha fraternity, I am exceedingly delighted to thank all of the authors for their invaluable and active participation toward the notable success of this Special Dedication Issue.
