"Let us get Sanskrit back to our daily life" is the motivation behind the site www.samskrutam.com which also gets directed from esanskrit.com. An effort initiated by Biswajit and Indrajit Dash, Anuja Satapathy, and Jyoti Prakash Mishra, based in Bhubaneswar, India, trying to spread Sanskrit awareness is commendable. The sections such as Tutorial - Literature - Education - Resources - Sentences - Slokas - Stories - Dictionary - News are under development. Devanagari portion including simple sentences and some subhashitas are presented in Sanskrit 2003 संस्कृत Font format. A dictionary interface with Sanskrit as well as transliteration based search is allowed and is being built. Wish them to have resources, time, patience, and financial support for long time to come.
