Sanskrit Mystery: Rishi Rajpopat On Ashtadhyayi

Rishi Rajpopat : Hello friends, Recently we have heard big news on news channels, in newspapers, and on social media that Dr. Rishi Atul Rajpopat, who is a Ph.D. student at Cambridge, has solved a 2500-year-old puzzle of Sanskrit and while on one hand the media is showing it as a huge victory and the whole country is proud, on the other hand, the reviewers who have reviewed Dr. Rishi Rajpopat’s work, Some of them say that this is very overhyped news and has been done by Cambridge University to gain popularity.

It is just a drama. How true is the claim made by Cambridge? How much false? We will understand in today’s video, but we have to appreciate one thing because of this news, the popularity has increased of Panini’s Ashtadhyayi.

Rishi Atul Rajpopat ji’s work which is this research paper named “In Panini we trust” is a work of about 250 pages and it is his hard work of 3-4 years. The research that has been done, has been done around one sutra.

There is a sutra in Ashtadhyayi at 1.4.2 “Vipratishedhe Param Karyam” Rishi ji believes that the sutra, has not been properly understood by Sanskrit scholars till now, so what happened to this? It created problems. Whether it is ancient masters like Katyayana or Patanjali, or the new Sanskrit scholars, they could not understand it properly. Let’s see what is there in this sutra.
