संस्कृत व्यवहार साहस्री – ६
which can be used in day to day conversations at the very mundane level. There are a thousand sentences covering day
to day interactions at the home, school, office, market, festivals, religious
and other functions etc. Practice of
these sentences, it is hoped, will enable children and adults to communicate in
grammatical Sanskrit at the most elementary level in day-to-day situations. The
English translation conveys the meaning without attempting a word for word
translation which is not practical due to differences in syntax, structure of
sentences, cultural differences etc.
