\documentclass[fleqn,12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}
![alt text][1]\begin{table}[ht]
\begin{tabular}{l l|l l}
\underline{\textcolor{blue}{Text 1}}& \hspace{1cm} &\hspace{1cm} & \underline{\textcolor{blue}{Text 2}}\\
&&&\\
Derivation of Text1 &&& Derivation of Text 2\\
Same as shown above &&& Same as shown above
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

I am achieving this using tabular environment. I was wondering if there is any other way to split the document into two column wherever i have need to produce such results. alt text Thanks for y

PS can I post example code with unicode text (i.e. Devanagari or Sanskrit)

  • 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 – user2478 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. – user2478 Dec 27 '10 at 20:50
