Nation celebrates Sanskrit Diwas
National Sanskrit day was observed on Shravan Purnima, August 7, at various Sanskrit Universities, Sanskrit Departments, academies and schools in the country. At some places, National Sanskrit Week is being celebrated that started on August 4 and will conclude on August 10.

Prime Minister greeted the nation on Sanskrit Day and shared his greetings with the people in Sanskrit which meant somewhat like this in English that India's rich history, culture and tradition had been in Sanskrit, and hence, the knowledge of this language is capable of connecting us with our rich literature, heritage and glorious past.

On the occasion of Sanskrit Day, Modi extended his heartfelt greetings to the scholars and students of Sanskrit, which he called as a beautiful language.

The students of humanities and arts, who wish to score high marks in public exams from secondary to post graduation, take this language as an elective subject.  I still remember, back in 1962, I took along with some other students Sanskrit as an elective subject for better marks and two of us from the Gita School in Haryana's Kurukshetra got into the merit list due to maximizing our marks in Sanskrit.

Of late, the interest in Sanskrit is being promoted as a scientific language, rich in spiritual and Vedic literature.
