Silchar: This has become a common perception that Sanskrit, the oldest language and the root of all Indian languages, is being neglected and no serious efforts are made to promote it. This is no doubt a wrong perception. The role of Sanskrit Bharati in glorifying the language and taking it to students and teachers is often overlooked. Sanskrit Bharati has come forward to assist Internal Quality Assessment Cell of Cachar College here to organize a 10 day spoken Sanskrit course in coordination with the department of Sanskrit which begins from April 29 to conclude on May 9. Dr Shilpi Dutta Mazumder head, department of Sanskit, said this is in consonance with fulfilling tryst with the rich ethos of our glorious motherland. This is what Sanskrit Bharati gives us by its worldwide movement for the continuing protection, promulgation and propaganda of the Sanskrit language-literature, traditions and knowledge system. Its motto explains its mission beautifully: ‘Reviving a language, rejuvenating a culture, rebuilding a great nation.’
Dr Dutta Mazumder said irrespective of race, gender, region, age, caste or creed, Sanskrit Bharati, a non-profit organization 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 Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg, New Delhi, its overseas centres, local offices in state capitals, district headquarters and grass root levels, the organization has a team of dedicated volunteers who coordinate with various institutions to make Sanskrit the face of all those Indians who take pride in being Indians and to showcase India’s strength to the world.
The achievements of Sanskrit Bharati are remarkable, Dr Dutta Mazumder pointed out. Till date, it has held 12,00,00 spoken Sanskrit camps, trained 1,00,000 teaches to teach students through the medium of Sanskrit. Four remotely located villages are vibrant in the knowledge of the classical language. Sanskrit Bhaati has 4500 centres across 19 countries of the world. To its credit goes the holding of first ever book fare in Sanskrit at Bangalaru in 2011 and Sahityatyot Utsav at Ujjain in 2015.
