The Directorate of Higher Education of Goa gave clearance to Sanskrit language which will be introduced as a new course by the Kundaim Mutt’s Shree Brahmanand Sanskrit Prabodhini organization in the state.

This is for the first time that Goa will be offered with such a course for its students. Meanwhile the given proposal will be under perusal by the Goa University’s (GU) academic council.

Sources confirms, that it is expected that the course will possibly be offered in Goa from the academic year 2016-17 itself.

The foundation will be based within Kundaim Mutt’s campus and will be known as Swami Brahmanand Mahavidyalaya.  It is also mentioned that students from any stream can join the degree programme, although some knowledge of Sanskrit will be desirable.

At present, only primary level is being offered with Sanskrit course in Goa schools.

In the meantime the central government is taking efforts on promoting Sanskrit  in many parts of India. It was only then in November when a 13-member committee was constituted in Goa headed by former chief election commissioner N Gopalaswami to suggest how best the interest in Sanskrit can be regenerated among the young generation and the citizens.

    Good initiative. Sanskrit is one of the ancient language languages. It should be preserved and passed on to future generation.

Rapper and music composer Badshah, who is excited about his new reality show “Dil Hai Hindustani 2”, says that rapping is not taken seriously in India as an art form.

Badshah was interacting with the media at the launch of Star Plus channel’s forthcoming reality show along with singer Sunidhi Chauhan on Monday.

Badshah, who has delivered some chart-busting rap songs like “Chull”, “Saturday Saturday” and most recent “Tareefan” is eager to spread awareness about rap as an art form.

Talking about it, he said: “Rapping along with dance and stand-up comedy is not taken seriously as an art form in India and this misconception should change.”

“That is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to be a judge on the show. But apart from that, I’m here to have fun as well, and have a better connection with the audience,” he added.

Talking about the future of the digital platform, Badshah said: “I think it (digital media) is the future, so it’s very important for any production house right now to concentrate on digital media.”

Sunidhi and Badshah will be judging the second season of the reality show “Dil Hai Hindustani”, along with Bollywood singer and composer Pritam.
