# How to create Index for Verses

I ran into problem of creating index for a book (1200 page) which has around 700 verses and its explanation.

I have one main tex file with the preamble. I have 18 chapters in my book, so I created 18 texfiles which contains the 700 verses. I am using \include{filename} to work with one file at a time.

I have no clue about creating index page for the book. I am attaching a screenshot of the format. To begin with I don’t even know how to add first few words of each verse to index page.

Its in sanskrit, and I am using verse environment as shown in the example here How to center a verse horizontally given by @Herbert

I found index worked it gave the first few words of the verse and page number. I could not get the chapter number and two column output with a line divide in between.
