ROMANIA, April 13, 2011: Today the Dimitrie Cantemir Library hosts the launch of the first "Sanskrit Manual" in Romania, authored by Amita Bhose and released by the Cununi de stele Publishing House. Amita Bhose (Calcutta, 1933 - Bucharest,1992), a researcher of Eminescu's work, Doctor of Philology (1975, with the thesis "Indian Influences on Eminescu'sThought"), writer, translator and university professor, acted as a mediator between Romanian and Indian culture.

The "Sanskrit Manual" is the fruit of several years' work, based on her teaching experience at the University of Bucharest, where she taught optional courses of Bengali, Sanskrit and Indian Civilization.The manual, divided in three volumes, comprising nearly 600 pages in manuscript, is a pioneering work in the study of Sanskrit. In 1990 no such work existed in Romania or any other European language.Thus, the manual is a valuable instrument for all those interested in Sanskrit.
