About the Book

It was a declared wish of the Mother of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, that Sanskrit should be the national language of India. This is because Sanskrit forms the very foundation of all Indian languages. However, she desired that for common use it should be a simple Sanskrit from the grammatical point of view. The Sanskrit Karyalaya of Sri Aurobindo Ashram has been active in promoting and popularising a simple form of Sanskrit for a number of years and this book represents the culmination of its efforts so far in this direction. The introductory and concluding chapters of the book deal with the relevance of Sanskrit in the present context. The first chapter presents a comparative study of Sanskrit with English, French, Tamil and Hindi and also a glossary of common words found in eleven major Indian languages. Conversations, stories, songs, playlet etc. in simple Sanskrit are included in the second chapter. The third chapter consists of eleven graded lessons and a glossary of terms useful for daily use. Sanskrit is considered difficult mainly because one has to memorise the numorous conjugations and declensions and the rules of gender and sandhi. Chapters from fourth to seventh are devoted to showing how these difficulties can be systematically removed using a novel approach. The book is thus intended to be a conve-nient handbook equally useful to teachers and students of the language.
