Thanks, Peter.

It is good to see a more comprehensive review that takes Rajpopat’s proposal 

Best wishes,

Dear Madhav, Sharon, and other colleagues,
I believe that rather than responding to social media, public news 
announcements, and wild claims made therein, the most responsible way to 
respond to the claims that Dr. Rajpopat made in his dissertation is to read the 
dissertation and write a comprehensive review of it.  I have done so in the 
first PDF attached to this email.  I include there a bibliography of work that 
I and a few others have done on rule selection and conflict resolution as well 
as formalization of the Aṣṭādhyāyī.  I attach PDFs of several of these papers 
to this email as well.
While the wild claims and inordinate attention that Rajpopat’s work has drawn 
in the past couple of weeks may be irritating to many, it has also drawn 
attention to the fascinating issues involved in understanding Pāṇini’s 
linguistic treatise and its tradition.  We would like to invite those who are 
interested in learning about the Pāṇinian tradition to join Dr. Tanuja 
Ajotikar’s course, “Introduction to the Pāṇinian tradition” taught online 
through The Sanskrit Library.  A description of the course can be found on The 
Sanskrit Library website (sanskritlibrary dot org) under “Courses” and from 
there under “Continuing education courses”.  Dr. Ajotikar also teaches a course 
“Readings in the सिद्धान्तकौमुदी described under “University equivalent 
courses”.  These courses will be offered again beginning 21 January.
Yours sincerely,
Peter M. Scharf, President
