Kerala: Iyam Akashvani, Samprati Vartah Sruyanthaam, Pravachako Baladevananda Sagaraha is a line generations of radio listeners are familiar with.

Almost poetic and elucidating rendition of Sanskrit news by Baladevananda Sagar, a former senior news reader with All India Radio, might have drawn the attention of even those with little knowledge of the ancient language.

Shortly, Sanskrit students in schools across Kerala will have an opportunity to step into the shoes of the legendary news reader.

In a unique initiative, Samprativartah (www.samprativartah.in), an online Sanskrit news portal promoted by Sanskrit teachers in Ernakulam and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) are set to conduct a three-day training in Sanskrit news reading for school students up to Standard Eight. Incidentally, Mr. Sagar had read the first news bulletin in the portal last September when it was launched.

The training will be at Saraswathi Vidyaniketan High School, Chengamanadu, from April 20 to 22 by experienced Sanskrit news readers and teachers associated with Samprativartah.
