The Ramayana pages in devanagari script would not be possible without Prof. Tokunaga's monumental effort in
encoding the whole RAmAyaNa of
the Baroda Critical Edition. The VAlmIki RAmAyaNa, Critically Edited for the First Time by
The Baroda Oriental Institute edition was published in 7 Volumes during 1960--1973. This
original encoding by Prof. Muneo
Tokunaga of Kyoto, Japan was modified by Prof. John Smith of Cambridge
University for the CSX version
of the Ramayana e-text.
We thank Prof. Tokunaga & Prof J. D. Smith for their kind permission to use
these files as the basis for conversion to devanagari
web version of the Ramayana. We thank Avinash Chopade
for ITRANS 5.1 and Sandeep Sibal & Arun Gupta for XDVNG fonts.
Without their pioneering efforts, devanagari on the web from e-texts would have been
impossible. Thanks also to Dhrup Chand for the
help with the Translit program.
Our heart-felt gratitude to all those who provided feedback, suggestions
and answered the numerous queries promptly and with patience. Thank You!!
