By NewsGram staff writer

In an attempt at popularizing Sanskrit amongst people, Samskrita Bharati, an organization dedicated to disseminating the importance of Sanskrit as a language, will hold a two day training workshop in Vadodara on Saturday, according to a report published in the Times of India.


The workshop will be training 25 teachers, who can speak in Sanskrit, to teach simple Sanskrit to people.
“Teachers from Baroda Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya, MS University, and schools from across the city are taking part in this workshop, wherein they will be trained to teach Sanskrit which solely is practical and not bookish,” said Rangam Trivedi, public relations coordinator of Sanskrit Lokchetna Abhiyan, Vadodara, as quoted in the report.

After the workshop, these teachers will participate in Sanskrit Lokchetna Abhiyan. The Abhiyan has planned to conduct 51 Sanskrit shibirs (camps) for a stint of 10 days across Vadodara.

The camps will be held between 11th-20th August, with a duration of two hours per day and will be free of cost.

On August 20th, Gujarat education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama will be paying a visit to a public event which is still being planned.

Finally on August 24th, on the occasion of World Sanskrit Day, all the participants of the movement will reach out to individual houses as part of “Gruham Gruham Sanskrutam” campaign and urge people to learn Sanskrit. A small book “Vadatu Sanskrutam” is also scheduled to be given to people to encourage them to learn Sanskrit.
