Head First Sanskrit!

For some time now I was desperate to start learning Sanskrit(I have a big reason to do this!). I didn't know where to start. Few month's ago I came across this excellent book in a book store in Bangalore. The book is titled "First Book of Sanskrit" by Sri.R.G. Bhandarkar.Titled "मार्गोपदेशिका " in Sanskrit it was first published in the year 1856! If you are serious about learning Sanskrit then this is the book for you!. The book is also available online.

Head first into Java.

Just bought this book called 'Head first Java' By Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.Have to say that this is an excellent book for beginners. The presentation of the topics are really different from the usual text books on Java available here in India.On the whole a very interactive book for beginners who want to get introduced to java.
