I don't understand

índrasya nú v?ryi prá vocam is translated Indra's heroic deeds will/shall I now declaim, that's pretty clear. But the article is about injunctive mood, and which words are the nouns, which are verbs, and on which verb is the injunctive mood applied? Is índrasya, Indra's or by convention in this position Indra's deeds. Vocam is by my nonbold guess I say, but the rest? ... Twirling his moustaches, does: Rursus 10:07, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

If you're looking for a breakdown of the phrase:

indrasya - gen. sg. of indra: "of Indra"

nu - ind. "now"

v?ryi - acc. pl. of v?rya: "heroic deeds"

pra - upas. pref., typically prefixed to verbs to denote the beginning of an action

vocam - 1 sg. P. inj. of vac: "(I) do extol"

"Now do I extol the heroic deeds of Indra..."

Occam's Razor - here?

Occam's Razor shouldn't be here. It's a tool for minimizing and clarifying theories and reasonings before presenting them to a public (or for oneselves). It's not a truth finding tool, since reality provides us mostly with vague and weak correlations where the directions of implication are ambiguous. Consider the 19th century rich German farms, their childbirth productivity, and the presence of the storks at the roof of the farms. Occam's Razor says that childbirth produces storks, or that storks produces children. Common sense says otherwise. Twirling his moustaches, does: Rursus 10:16, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

I read the article and concluded this too. I'm glad someone else agrees with me. I'll remove it. Ufwuct (talk) 18:14, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
