Chetan has created Sanskrit utilities that cover Ajax-Based Online Interface to Monier Williams Sanskrit Dictionary using a Java-J2EE Backend, Transliterator to generate display in Devanagari using multiple transliteration schemes (Itrans, Kyoto, and single key map), a Sandhi engine that joins two words and displays them in Devanagari, and a Pratyahara-Decoder based on the Shiva sutra of Panini. The Java based sandhi project software is available for download. An article "Introduction to the Technique of Paninian Grammar" supplements the utilities. The dictionary allows Copy to ClipBoard function for the Devanagari/eLatin Output and makes it more User-Friendly.
