Who has nothing else to do, he studies Sanskrit

I appreciate the shots my Sanskrit textbook – Devavanipravesika – take at its subject and it students.  It often introduces a new element of grammar with a variant of ‘these rules, though of appalling complexity at first glance, …’ and today in reviewing relatives and correlatives I found this example sentence:

yasyAnyA gatir nAsti, sa samskrtam pathati

Who has nothing else to do, he studies Sanskrit

Lacking a proper font and never sure the keyboard shortcuts needed I’ve capitalized long A’s and ignored whatever the dots below m and r are called.
