Rangavalli is a flitting tribute of felicitations paid by a generation of scholars, old and new from all parts of the world, to an outstanding archaeologist, Dr S. R.

The collection of research essays is at once scholarly and varied and of absorbing interest, and represents a cross-section of Indian scholarship in various subjects such as Indian history, prehistory, protohistory, epigraphy, numismatics, art, architecture, sculpture, painting, religion and culture.

The volume has contributions from Dr. K.D. Bajapai, Dr Lallanji Gopal, Dr Upendra Thakur, Dr Ajay Mirta Sastry, Dr M.K. Dhavalikar, Dr K.V. Raman, Dr K.V. Ramesh and others.
