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 Story of Rama books (Parts 1 and 2) together relate, in 16 episodesm the story of the Ramayana. Part 1 introduces: the standard method of transliteration; the gerund ('having done something'); and the declension of the Sanskrit word for 'that' in all three genders. Part 2 covers an introduction to the imperative mood; other important noun and pronoun declensions; 'having done something' used with prefixes; the past passive participle; the conjugation of the middle voice and the verb 'to be' in present, future and past tenses; and the completion of the standard method of transliteration.
