Unlike collection of essays on Indian language and cul ture this collection is ardently concentrated upon the most important language of the globe i.e. Sanskrit. In this collection eight essays are included.
The first essay is authored by Sir William Jones (1746-1794). He was an Anglo-Welsh philologist, a poise Judge on the Supreme Court of Judicature at Fort William in Bengal, and a scholar of ancient India, particularly known for his proposition of the existence of a relationship among European and Indo-Aryan languages, which he coined as Indo-European. In his essay he says that the Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin and more exquisitely refined than either; yet learning to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and in the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong, indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three without believing them to have strong from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists.
