A Dictionary needs no preface: but it become necessary, at the outset, to explain why a work of this type was undertaken when there are already some Dictionaries in Sanskrit. There is not a single work in existence giving both Sanskrit-English Hindi and English-Sanskrit Hindi Dictionaries in one volume. There are separate volumes in each, prepared by great scholars of Sanskrit; but their cost is too much for the pockets of a student of moderate means. My chief object, therefore, in compiling this dictionary has been to produce a volume of small size, giving all that students in High schools and at Colleges ordinarily require during their study of Sanskrit works, and at the same time to make it so cheap that even a poor student can easily afford to buy it. This Dictionary is divided into two parts. In the first part I have given Sanskrit words with their meaning in English, and in the second part English words with their equivalents in Sanskrit Hindi. While lecturing to Sanskrit classes of standard VII, and while coaching up private pupils for higher University Examinations, it was often brought to my notice that students cannot easily make feminines of adjectives and participles, and very few of them know the correct past passive participles of verbs, I have, therefore, given feminines of adjectives and also past passive participles of verbs which will be found printed in small brackets by the side of words. This is not done in the second part, as a student can easily find it out by referring to the same word in the first part.Printed Pages: 272.
