Samskrit Week Celebrations Begin Today (August 19), PM Narendra Modi Greets People

Samskrit Week is celebrated every year three days before and three days after the Shravana Purnima, and this year, it will be from 19th to August 25.

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted people on the occasion of Samskrit Week (August 19-25).

 

PM Modi said the Samskrit language is so rich that it touches every aspect of our life. He added it is a matter of joy that the Sanskrit language is reaching more and more people through modern technology, and its popularity is growing across the globe.

 

The Prime Minister expressed confidence that Samskrit Week will generate new interest and enthusiasm among the people and play an important role in spreading the Samskrit language.

 

Chamu Krishna Shastry, Secretary of Samskrit Promotion Foundation and co-founder of Samskrita Bharati, said, “Samskrit belongs to all and all need to learn or work for Samskrit. A community which abandons its language of culture, its source of inspiration and its bond of unity cannot flourish to its fullest. Losing the link to our past is like losing the civilizational memory and the priceless heritage.”

 

Speaking about the Samskrit Week celebrations, he said, “Making the Samskrit Week celebrations more focussed may produce greater impacts. To popularise Samskrit, the focus can be popularising Samskrit Knowledge Systems.”

The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 says, “The importance, relevance, and beauty of the classical languages and literature of India also cannot be overlooked. Sanskrit, while also an important modern language mentioned in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India, possesses a classical literature that is greater in volume than that of Latin and Greek put together, containing vast treasures of mathematics, philosophy, grammar, music, politics, medicine, architecture, metallurgy, drama, poetry, storytelling, and more (known as ‘Sanskrit Knowledge Systems’), written by people of various religions as well as non-religious people, and by people from all walks of life and a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds over thousands of years.”
