Literary works of well-known Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen and several other leading writers will soon be available in Sanskrit. ?The move will help the revival of Sanskrit language and will also make it popular amongst masses,? said Shri Chamu Krishna Shastri, general secretary of Samskrita Bharati that has undertaken the project to translate nearly 10,000 books in various languages into Sanskrit.
?We have entrusted Sanskrit scholars from all over India for the translation work,? he added. Under the project, literary works in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Telugu, Marathi and other regional languages would be translated into Sanskrit. The first phase of the project, which has already been initiated, will be for nearly 1,000 books in ten categories, including novels, biographies, science, religion and culture.
