Yes, you can post Unicode here. I'd edit it in, but I can't type Devanagari and don't know Sanskrit :-) But go ahead, use Unicode if you want! – Antal Spector-Zabusky Dec 27 '10 at 5:47

Herbert,Thanks for showing me how to do parallel however I could not itemize things on both sides. When I used itemize then both are getting over lapped on the left side. Is there a way around it. – Aku Dec 27 '10 at 19:11
@Aku, please give an example – Herbert Dec 27 '10 at 19:47
@Aku: see my edited example. I do not know if this is the right way because I used the parallel package only for pure text where I can have left the original text and on the right the translated text. – Herbert Dec 27 '10 at 20:50
It worked, thanks – Aku Dec 27 '10 at 21:09
