From Dr. Sureshwar Jha’s “Mithila Me Doo Got Vachaspati(manuscript seen in April 2009).
He is a great socialist leader and author of Maithili and a Mithila Protagonist.
He said that he had recently visited Andhara Thadhi(near Jhanjharpur where Vachaspti I or Vriddha Vacaspati lived in 9 th century whose Bhamati Teeka is of world fame. Sorrily his abode has still grass only though Chanda Jha’s statue was there who was a son in aw of that village.
Similarly Karian village of Udayanacharya and Bhatpura village of Kumaril Bhatta need statues.
Present Holi Shankaracharya Of Puri, who is a Maithil from Deeh Tol, Kaluahi had suggested that the abode of these great persons should be recorded as such in the Land revenue department so that these cannot be encroached by others.
Dr. Sureshwar Jha also narrated how in 1982 at Gooroovyoor he listened to a song comparable with Shenai of north.
