Dear Amba,

>From the "overwhelming response"  which you mentioned for previous editions
of your course, it is clear that there is indeed a widely felt need for
this kind of introduction to Sanskrit designed for a modern, general
public, and esp. for graduate students in any subject in science and
technology who want to be able to read Sanskrit texts  (philosophical,
mathematical, ayurvedic) using available computational tools.

A century ago it was natural and useful to encourage students in classical
philology and ethnology to take an interest in Sanskrit and Sanskrit
literature (Willem Caland 1906
on Sanskrit in relation to classical philology and ethnology), at present
it is equally natural and useful to do the same for students in science and

Wishing you and your team much success, this year again, with this course

of Hyderabad in collaboration with INRIA, Paris, in its updated set-up
(pre-recorded courses and live discussions),
