SanskritaPradipika in e-tutorial. The idea was to make Sanskrit easier
for even people who don't know an alphabet of the Devanagari script. One of
my JNU students, Jayant Shekhar, who is now an associate professor, computer
science, at Vivekananda University, Meerut, helped me write the tutorial. It
took us almost four years, 12 hours a day without a break, to write the
program. But it doesn't have the pronunciation.
I thought we could use the principles of Sanskrit grammar to devise a new
computer programming language, but that initiative didn't proceed the way I
had hoped it would. Since we had learnt so much of Sanskrit, we thought why
not write a tutorial to teach it.
