As is obvious from the title of this blog or from the address of the blog, this blog is about study of grammar of Sanskrit, basically my study of Sanskrit grammar.
I have been studying Sanskrit at other blogs of mine. But I realize that study of grammar of Sanskrit becomes a comprehensive study by itself.
When speaking of grammar of Sanskrit language, what comes immediately to mind is अष्टाध्यायी of पाणिनी. People have been doing study of अष्टाध्यायी of पाणिनी since ages. व्याकरण-महाभाष्य by पातञ्जलि is one such study. Then there have been सिद्धान्त-कौमुदी and लघु सिद्धान्त-कौमुदी.
I am aware that I am not a scholar, much less in Sanskrit grammar. I also know that I am fallible. However, at least for myself, my studies of Sanskrit will remain incomplete without a study of grammar of the language.
Most languages have different forms. The colloquial form may not be always grammatically correct. But such grammatically incorrect form is, to my mind, unacceptable to Sanskrit. The word Sanskrit itself means “refined”. I contend that its refining is prominently related to its grammatical structuring, through well laid-out rules. If that is so, grammatically incorrect Sanskrit is not Sanskrit anymore. Sanskrit has to be necessarily grammatically correct. That underscores the need for study of grammar of Sanskrit to be an essential and integral part of any study of Sanskrit.
I may be making mistakes in my studies. It has been a great experience with other blogs of mine, that experts have enriched them with their learned critical comments. I hope and pray that this blog also receives their blessings.
