1) Sītārāma (सीताराम) is the father of Śambhurāma Miśra (18th century): disciple of Śrīnivāsa is credited with a metrical text named Chandomuktāvalī. Śambhurāma mentions one Hariguru in his invocatory verse, who probably was his preceptor. He was a Brahmin by caste and belonged to Kāśyapagotra. He was also a devotee of Lord Hayagrīva. He mentions about his gotra, name of his father in the end of the work and the name of his preceptor in colophon. He says with full of devotion that the work is dedicated to Lord Hayagrīva and the learned mass should relish the metrical testimony from it.

2) Sītārāma (सीताराम) is the disciple of Kandāḍa Veṅkaṭācārya (who resided in kuṭhārapura and who was also a devotee of Lord Viṣṇu) and the author of the Vṛttadarpaṇa. Sītārāma praises and mentions about his preceptor in the beginning of the work. He also gives his identity as he belongs to ātreyagotra and yajuśśākhā. Sītārāma starts work after praising goddess Lakṣmī in terms of Ramā in the invocatory verse of the work, composed in mallikā metre. As a well versed scholar of both Sanskrit and Drāviḍa languages, he says that on the advice of the learned scholars he has composed the works in both the languages.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
