This was not a satisfactory reply since Dr. Kiernan had undertaken such a mammoth task, but I was happy to finally put my mind at rest before I embarked on the task of editing that translation.

I then wished to find any of his next of kin so that I could express my desire to work further on his book but to no avail. I even tried to contact a professor in the department of History, Edinburgh University where Kiernan worked all his life. There was no luck, but I decided to go ahead and started working on the translation.
While I kept on steadily working on the project, I also kept on finding ways to connect to the next of kin of Dr. When the work was almost complete, I gave the search a final push and wrote emails to almost all the teaching staff in the department of History, Edinburgh University, nearly fifty people, with a request if anyone has a clue about Dr.

This frantic effort bore fruits when one of the faculty members, not only sent me the contact for the widow of Dr Victor Kiernan but also informed that Mrs Heather Kiernan resides not far away from Edinburgh. This was a delightful moment when Mrs Kiernan, not only replied me back immediately but also informed that LeftWord books, a publishing company in Delhi are planning to republish the translation.
She put me in touch with them and wanted to see if we could all work together. The LeftWord also responded quickly saying that they would be very happy to publish the translation edited by me. They have already got my script and are working towards publishing it by the end of , as per their promised estimate.
The Translation It would perhaps remain an enigma as why Prof. Kiernan could not include the last chapter in the book that dealt with one of the most crucial periods of modern Indian history, but to translate this remaining chapter, I thought, was the best way to start the project.
It was a marvellous achievement in English, but there were some interesting discrepancies, which I think were due to the fact that Kiernan may not have had the time to delve into the mythology and ancient history of India, in spite of his great interest in the history of the subcontinent. First of all, I would mention the change of putting all Indian names with transcription symbols.
I felt it necessary for the English readers to know that the basic 26 Roman letters are not sufficient enough to represent all the Indian sounds. Describing each and every Indian name with phonetic symbols however was not logical since there are a number of words, particularly names of the geographical locations, which have been very well known to the world through basic Roman letters and are pronounced more or less correctly, for example Hindu-Kush, Kashmir, Pamir, Swat, Bihar, Pradesh etc.
It would be worth making a special mention of certain names of places which have been introduced to the world by the British. For centuries, these have been wrongly pronounced and incorrectly spelled, simply for the fact that the English speaking rulers did not have the ability to pronounce them correctly.
Many such names, as often surface in the media, are now being respelled in India. I noticed that Dr. Kiernan translated these words as best as possible, but I felt it necessary not to translate them but to explain the meaning in foot-notes. This is to convey the hidden message of the author, who in his original Hindi text had kept them un-translated.
I understand that the author tried to point towards the possibility of those words being used as expression of commonly used language in those regions and in that particular time of the history.
These titles have a peculiar character which cannot be simply substituted by the parallel words of English or Christian terminology. Another category of words that I felt important to give in their original is the names of the animals and plants.
On almost each occasion he mentions the names of such wild-life creatures or trees, which are only found in that part of the world, hence have no parallel words apart from some botanical terminology. Then there also are the Indian units of weights, measures and distances, which Dr. Kiernan must have researched painstakingly to calculate equivalents in English pounds, pints and miles; I however decided rather to introduce the original words so as to make the readers aware of ancient Indian terms for such units.
Semantics was rather an easy part while editing the text.
