    These Coursebooks are well-graded, and supported by appropriate illustrations that make them very attractive to learners, particularly the young. Today many Indian and foreign schools/colleges offer Sanskrit as an optional subject. For such student these books are a very effective means of introducing Sanskrit, which they might not have studies previously. The book could also be useful for those involved in performing arts, such as dance and music, or for students of Yoga and Ayurveda - subjects which have many Sanskrit references. The first group of books entitles Sanskrit is Fun (Parts 1, 2 and 3) introduce the learners to the Devanagari alphabets, grouping the letter according to their place of articulation, called 'Family', which comprises both the vowels and consonants. Learners are first taught how to draw the letters. Learning and teaching is also helped by the humorous presentation of the letters in the form of animals figures. The next step is to add vowel to the consonants, and then joint (com-pound) consonants. Family, words and consonants are formed.
