"Upama Kaalidaasasya"
"samskruthe sambaashanam kuru, jeevanasya parivarthanam kuru!"

Dear Samskrutha Rasikaas,

I came across and excellent site to learn sanskrit online. It is
fabulousy designed and uses Dynamic fonts, rendering the devanagari
script in a very very legible format.

They even  have an "Pre Test" for people interested. 

Here is one sample from the 'very easy' section

*What is the name given to letters which are homogeneous and can be
prounounced similarly? 

a)savarna
b)samana
c)a-savarna
d)sah:-sh.ya

Here is one from the 'difficult section'

*In which drama does the famous statement "A person whose education
is for earning money is called a "knowledge-trader" occur? 

a)Malavikagnimitra
b)Uttararamacharita
c)Venisamhara
d)Malati Madhava

Here is the link

I strongly reccomend every member to make a sincere attempt to learn
sanskrit. Sanskrit is akin to Mathematics and really quite simple to
learn if learnt under the divine feet of acharyas.

When you start, Please start learning sanskrit by reciting:

Jn~Anandamayam dEvam nirmala spatikAkruthim
aadhAram sarva vidhyAnAm HayagrIvam upAsmahE 

nyAnapirAn thiruvadigale sharanam.

adiyen ramanuja daasan,

Malolan Cadambi
