Indian PhD student Rishi Rajpopat solved the 2,500-year-old Sanskrit puzzle

An Indian Ph.D. student at the University of Cambridge has solved a Sanskrit grammatical puzzle that has confounded researchers since the fifth century BC. According to the BBC, 27-year-old Rishi Atul Rajpopat decoded a text written by the Sanskrit language master Panini, a master of the ancient Sanskrit language who lived roughly two and a half thousand years ago.
Mr. Rajpopat, in particular, is a PhD student at St. John’s College, Cambridge, in the faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.

“I had a eureka moment in Cambridge. I was almost ready to give up after nine months of attempting to solve this problem. So I put the books away for a month and spent it swimming, cycling, cooking, praying, and meditating. Then, unwillingly, I returned to work, and as I flipped the pages, these patterns began to emerge, and it all began to make sense. “He told the Independent about it. It took him another two years to solve the problem.
