sasProject Launch

January, 2011 saw the official launch of the project, which will be carried out by Dr Eivind Kahrs (Project leader) and Dr Vincenzo Vergiani in collaboration with Prof. Malhar Kulkarni, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mumbai, and Prof. Saroja Bhate, Emeritus Professor of Sanskrit, University of Pune.

The Project is funded by a British Academy grant in the frame of the International Partnerships Scheme with South Asia. It aims, over three years, at preparing a critical edition of the whole first book of this 7th-century work attributed to Jayāditya and Vāmana, which is the oldest complete commentary on the Aṣṭādhyāyī of Pāṇini, while investigating its role in the history of Sanskrit grammatical thought.
