Drive to develop 11 lakh Sanskrit speaking families all over the country
BHARAT Sanskrit Parishad, a unit of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), has launched a campaign to develop at least 11 lakh Sanskrit speaking families all over the country. According to Shri Radha Krishna Manori, general secretary of Bharat Sanskrit Parishad, a concrete action plan has been formulated in this regard and such families are being developed all over the country through Sanskrit training camps by the Parishad.
Speaking at the concluding ceremony of all India Sanskrit training camp organised in New Delhi from June 11 to 24, Shri Manori pointed out that Bharat Sanskrit Parishad is working on the agenda to connect the propagation of Sanskrit with employment generation and it is with this objective that training camps are being organised at different places of the country. The shiksharthis are imparted training in language, Ayur Veda, astrology, Yogashastra, Gandharva Veda, writing, etc. This training in the camps is imparted by experts. A total of 75 shiksharthis attended the camp in Delhi.
Earlier, inaugurating the camp on June 11, joint secretary general of VHP Swami Vigyananand said the Sanskrit scholars would have to come forward to protect and promote the language. He said learning Sanskrit did not mean neglecting other languages. One may learn any language including English but negligence of Sanskrit would prove disastrous to India. He appealed to Sanskrit scholars to focus on science also through Sanskrit and explore new avenues of knowledge. He also apprised the gathering of the information regarding the Sanskrit gurukulas being run in America, England, Australia and New Zealand. He emphasised that Bharat can regain her glory only through the Sanskrit language.
Vice president of VHP Shri Balkrishna Naik said the Sanskrit still has worldwide influence. He appealed to each and every patriotic citizen of the country to learn Sanskrit and help in developing Sanskrit families. Prominent among those who guided the shiksharthis at the camp in different sessions included Dr Shri Krishna Semwal of Delhi Sanskrit Academy, Sanskrit scholar Dr Ruby Verma, national working president of Bharat Sanskrit Parishad Dr Girija Shankar Sharma, general secretary of VHP (organisation) Shri Dinesh Chandra, Dr Madhu Gupta of Yoga and Naturopathy College and Prof. Deviprasad Tripathi of Lal Bahadur Shastri Sanskrit University.
