Sanskrit about us

About Department

Sanskrit is a classical language. It is a unique experience to study this divine language, the mother language of Indian regional languages, and sister language of Greek, Latin and English languages. The reading and understanding of classical scriptures written in Sanskrit gives an insight into the rich heritage of India, learnings and governance policies, knowledge dissemination methods, and effective communicative skills.

The early manuscripts like the Vedas give explicit information of varied subjects that include arts, agriculture, medicine, economics, engineering, performing arts etc. There are many practices that are still based on this age-old wisdom and hence, Sanskrit as a subject is valued in several nations other than India.

Ingrained in the course work of Bachelors in Sanskrit is research, exposure to classical literature and grammar.

MISSION

As day by day Sanskrit is being less coveted by the students, our mission is concentrated on our goal to have satisfactory numbers of the students opting for this subject by making the lectures more interesting and innovative. For this, we intend to implement Sanskrit into practice by encouraging students to speak some simple sentences of Sanskrit used in daily routine.

We look forward to having spoken Sanskrit classes and to form the Sanskrit Society in order to inculcate interest of the students for Sanskrit.
