UGC to sponsor an All India Sanskrit seminar

New Delhi: To all those who think that Sanskrit is a dead language, hold on and think again!  Jamshedpur Workers’ College is all set to prove this notion wrong.

Sanskrit is all set to occupy Centre stage at the at the second edition of an all-India Sanskrit seminar sponsored by the University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi, which is scheduled for March 10 to 12 at Motilal Nehru Public School Auditorium in Sakchi, Jamshedpur.

The theme of the seminar is “Diversity and relevance of Kalidasa’s literature in modern times”.

70 delegates across are country are expected to attend the seminar scheduled next month. Research scholars from Gujarat, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Jharkhand are likely to come and share their thoughts and present research papers at the seminar.The college has earlier also organized a Sanskrit seminar in 2014 on the theme of, “Sanskrit as a language in science”.

Prasoon Dakshin, the head of the department of Sanskrit, exclaimed that last year they had more than 200 research papers, which had to be published as books in three separate volumes., so this year the college is expecting at least 150 research papers.

“The biggest achievement for the college will be to delve into research work done in Sanskrit. It is the revival of the usage of Sanskrit. There was an overwhelming response last time. This time, too, we expect the same. Students have become aware and have started taking a keen interest in the language now. There are so many students who express their eagerness to learn Sanskrit,” he said.

Dakshin also felt sad on the seeing the preference of people towards foreign language rather than one of their own. “The seminar will be a part of the process of promoting the ancient language. We would try to implement Sanskrit as an important part of the school curriculum. Schools like Delhi Public School-Bokaro have already decided to introduce Sanskrit from Class I,” he added.(Inputs from agencies)
