Mysuru: Karnataka Governor Vajubhai R. Vala on Saturday gave a call for revival of Sanskrit language.

Speaking at two day Sanskrit convention organized by Samskrita Bharati at the Ganapati Sachchidananda Ashram here, the Governor said for strengthening the roots of Indian culture and for tapping into the ancient wisdom and knowledge, revival of Sanskrit was necessary. He further added that apart from imparting education in the mother tongue of the students, imparting the knowledge of Sanskrit is also vital for infusing values of life.


Calling for scientific scrutiny of the Sanskrit texts, ISRO Chairman A.S. Kiran Kumar said: “While a large portion of Sanskrit literature has been lost to posterity, a significant portion has been preserved and some are in other countries and efforts should be made to bring them back for subjecting it to detailed analysis.”

He added that a study of Sanskrit will help in advancement of Knowledge and is vital for understanding the cultural roots of this country. Dismissing the tendency of some people to reject everything ancient as superstition, Kumar highlighted how the Chinese scholar successfully found herbs to treat Malaria by studying ancient texts and was subsequently awarded with the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015.

Describing Sanskrit as the mother of all Indian languages, Dinesh Kamath, the organizing secretary, stressed that revival of Sanskrit was also necessary for the preservation of local languages. (Photo: http://anudinam.org)
