The "Online Indexing of Mahabharata" was completed as part of M.Phil. research submitted to Special Center for Sanskrit Studies, JNU in 2008 by Diwakar Mani (M.Phil 2006-2008) and then updated by adding semantic search facility to Bhishma Parva in 2022 by Ravi Kant (2018-20) under the supervision of Dr. Girish Nath Jha . The coding for the application was done by Prof. Girish Nath Jha.

This web-application has been developed using Java servlets on Apache Tomcat and RDBMS techniques using MS SQL server 2005 in unicode. The application allows three kinds of searches -

  • Direct Search - user can enter key word in utf-8 and get all the references and details from Mahabharata
  • Alphabetical search - user can click on a Devanagari alphabet to get the index of words beginning with that alphabet
  • Search by the structure of the text - user can click on "parvas" > "upa-parvas" > "adhyayas" > "akhyanas" to get the index

    Clicking on an indexed word will display the details for that word and also a facility to search that word in some other online lexical resources
