The Union HRD Minister calls for popularising the language and improving the standard of teaching it.
Describing Sanskrit as the “voice of India’s soul and wisdom,” Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday called for popularising the language and improving the standard of teaching it.
“Contemporary works have to be translated into Sanskrit; the valuable scientific and mathematical knowledge present in Sanskrit will have to be brought out and published. New modern literature has to be developed where contemporary society is reflected,” a statement released by the HRD Ministry quoted her as saying at the fifth convocation of the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, a deemed university.
