This is a fresh look at Panini's Grammar from the viewpoint of data analysis and resulting rule formations. The author ha taken the view that Panini must be rediscovered by following the path of data analysis and explores Panini's technique and offers a fresh insight. Languages play a very large role in modern technology. The subject matter of computer and intelligent machines requires a deep understanding of the language phenomenon. India has Panini to offer to the world in this respect and Dr. Singh is making him more palatable and fathomable as model for understanding the process of dismantling and reassembling the linguistic structures. His keen analysis of Panini's grammatical device offers a glimmer of hope for those who would like to revive the spirit of Panini rather than worship the ancient gem of human kind. It is high time that fresh and aggressive insight and ideas are offered to explore Panini. Panini himself would be proud to see his work come back to life above and beyond the rote that preserved it through the ages.
