Shri Panini (Makers of Indian Literature)
Description
About the Book:

Panini, the greatest grammarian of the world, belonged to the period between 5th and 4th century B.C. He is indeed the first grammarian to go deeper into the conventional speech units known as words and recognize the basic elements of meaning which combine into different meaningful units. Thus his Vyakarna Astadhyayi contains not only an analysis of speech units into their ultimate constituents but also lays down rules of their combinations leading to a variety of linguistic expressions. The most noteworthy aspect of the entire mechanism in the Paninian workshop is economy. Economy reigns supreme in his grammar. The foremost achievement of the Gandhar grammarian Panini thus consists of a finite set of rules for explaining an infinite number of speech units. Linguists all over the world are impressed by this method of language description successfully implemented by Panini. Due to his workmanship of a very high rank his work emerges as a perfect model of sutra mode of composition. In this way, apart from being a valuable historical document Panini's grammar has provided a model of language description which treats both matter and mind together.

About the Author:

She has written many books on linguistic studies including The Role of Particle Ca in the Interpretation of the Astadhyayi. At present she is the Head of the Department of Sanskrit and Prakrit Languages, University of Poona, Pune.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
