The present grammar has been prepared with a view to meet the growing wants of the Indian University students. The University examiners have been, of late, evincing a desire to exact a more thorough knowledge of the obscurer and therefore more difficult parts of Sanskrit Grammar, than was required formerly. The student of the present day must acquire more than a general knowledge of the various departments of the Sanskrit Grammar, including necessary information of the various topics discussed in the original Sanskrit works. I have, therefore, done my best to bring the present Grammar up to the requirements of the high standard.

I have spared no pains to make the book as useful and complete as possible. Also such of the technical terms used in original Sanskrit Grammars as the student always meets with in Sanskrit commentaries, are given in their proper places with their explanations.

The Dhatukosha is given in Appendix II, the meanings of all the important roots being given in Sanskrit along with those in English and many useful forms added. Prosody is given as Appendix II.
