Her observation about Sanskrit is quite informative: (Page .no-5--Preface):

Generally people in India think that Sanskrit was the first language and later came all natural language, Prakrit and vernacular languages. This misconception is just because Sanskrit was the first written language of India. In reality Prakrit  and vernacular languages were in existences much before Sanskrit --  good information.
