“Sanskrit is the classical language of Indian and the liturgical language of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. It is also one of the 22 official languages of India. The name Sanskrit means “refined”, “consecrated” and “sanctified”. It has always been regarded as the ‘high’ language and used mainly for religious and scientific discourse.”

Sanskrit is the mother of all languages.Lately, it is being used as a programming language because it in less words it conveys more meaning. All the Vedas are written in Sanskrit which contain a treasure trove of knowledge.

Recently the West has become aware of these treasures that we Indians have inherited and are exploiting them without our knowing. For example, the Vedas have been translated to English and Yoga is being practiced there with more vigour than in India. The Yajur Veda is all about medicine. If we translate it and use it’s information then we can treat diseases more efficiently, effectively, and easily

We Indians need to be more aware about our cultural heritage, tradition and languages. Sanskrit should be made a compulsory subject in schools as English is today. All the things the Ancient Indians did were for a reason which we today know as tradition. They did certain things because they were more technologically advanced than their era.

Therefore we should follow our tradition and preserve it for the generations to come.
