Silchar: The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC), Cachar College, Silchar, hosted a free 10-day Spoken Sanskrit course in its seminar room in collaboration with the non-profit organization, Sanskrit Bharati. The 10-day Spoken Sanskrit course started from April 29.
Irrespective of race, gender, religion, age, caste or creed, NGO Sanskrit Bharati founded in 1981 aims to promote the study of Sanskrit, not as a status symbol of the elite, but as a booster of individual character and harmonious society. Operating from its headquarters at 25, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg, New Delhi, its overseas centers, its local offices in state capitals, district headquarters and grass root levels, the organization has a large team of dedicated volunteers who coordinate with various educational institutions to make Sanskrit the face of all such Indians who take pride in being Indians and showcase India’s strength to the world.
The course has received a heartening response from varied sections of society and the college hopes to organize courses of longer duration in future. On the inaugural day of this course, the participants were 55 in number which increased subsequently. On Thursday, a closing ceremony was held which was graced by the auspicious presence of Swami Baikunthanandi Maharaj of Ramakrishna Mission Sevapratisthan, Silchar. He spoke extensively on the significance of Sanskrit learning.
