    Nice One. Very much appreciate. I do not know much Sanskrit grammer except reading,but still I can little understand.

    I saw the heading Narayaneeyam and hence writing. Do you have Narayaneeyam (devnagari font or any other language) in digital format which can be converted to Malayalam, so that I can type out meanings to it in Malayalam from a very old commentary, for online posting. Please reply
