In any sentence, the ‘VERB’ is the most important thing
Because of the verb, we understand the meaning of any sentence
For example, in English -
1. I mango. There is a sense of incompleteness
2. I eat a mango. The sentence is complete; we get to know the meaning of this sentence.
Similarly, in Sanskrit too,
1. रामः फलं (Ram fruit) - the sentence is incomplete
2. रामः फलं खादति (Ram eats fruit) – The sentence is complete and the complete meaning is understood
A verb is the most important aspect to understand the meaning of the sentence. It gives completeness to the sentence
क्रियापद – Verb -> पद (word), क्रिया (action) -> a word that tells an action
These types of relations are called ‘कारक’ in Sanskrit
कारक is one which follows an action and also denotes the relation between noun and verb
