Ajanta is a dream dreamt by goddess of beauty; a pride of, not only Maharashtra or Bharat but also the whole human civilization; an invaluable treasure of mankind and hence has been declared as a World Heritage place by UNESCO.

Although much has been written about Ajanta, everyone finds something new or different and is tempted to write newly about it. Mr. Ram Thatte spent several years in Ajanta, living so close to those paintings, day in day out that he almost became one with them. Those characters in the painting seemed to talk with him as if they were his close buddies. His love for them is evident in the way he salvaged the `shat-danta Jataka'.

His hypothesis, that the artists may not have used torches or oil lamps while working on those sculptures or paintings in the dark recesses, lest they spoiled the paintings, could not be comprehenced by others. The experiment of reflecting sunlight from surface of water that he undertook to demonstrate and prove his point was mind blowing.

The criteria, such as the rhythm in the outlines, the contrast in various forms, proportions, balance, aesthetic scheme and symmetry that he applies while explaining the essence artistic manifestations in Ajanta, doubles the delight reader in appreciating the beauty of those magnificent caves
