I have created a six-million line package of Java classes to build an e-tutor to teach the Sanskrit language to English-speaking people. Thousands of copies of this free software – named SanskritaPradipika – have been downloaded worldwide, and a subsequent development has been that I now teach Sanskrit to students in many countries from my home, using Skype. To further this goal I’ve created a number of complex Java programs that enable me to create and produce searchable Sanskrit texts on the PC. These programs have been fundamental to the creation of a website on the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, in which a number of facilities, such as word-search, chants of the slokas, a Sanskrit writing tool and more have been provided. This website may be viewed at Gita Mritam For this purpose please use Google Chrome browser.

A large-scale Java program to help students learn mathematics is also under preparation.
