    I am grateful that the link has been established. If I remember correctly, four links were not working. I will try to access them and see what the status is, and let you know which ones are not working. This one works now. So thanks a million. Namaskar.

  3. One should know that the Sanskrit Primer of Parry is nothing more than an english translation of the German manual on Sanskrit “Leifaden für den Elementarcursus von Sanskrit” by Prof. Georg F. Bühler, published originally in Vienna (Wien) in 1882.
