Dear Friends,

JAI Hind!


Subject: SANSKRIT IN DUBLIN, IRELAND Sanskrit In Dublin


          We have had occasions to send many mails periodically on Sanskrit, “The MOTHER OF ALL LANGUAGES”.
          We felt we should share the major contents of a report lying with us for some time. The report is titled “WHY MY CHILD SHOULD STUDY SANSKRIT? This is from a teacher in Sanskrit in John Scottus School in Dublin.
          There are 80 similar schools in UK and around who have made similar decision.
          The author says, “Sanskrit stands out above all languages for its beauty of sound, pecision in pronunciation and reliability as well as thoroughness in every aspect of its structure. This is why it has never changed unlike other languages. It has had no need to change being the most perfect language of the mankind. “That is saying quite a lot indeed!
          The author adds, “Although India has been the custodian of Sanskrit, Sanskrit has had universal appeal (should we say, it has even now,).Sadly, it does not seem so to be so to the so called intentlligetsia in the country.
          As to the question “Why MY CHILD SHOULD STUDY”, the answer provided by the teacher RUTGERKORTENHORS.
is simply beautiful, “The qualities of Sanskrit will become the qualities of my child.” We feel this could not have been put in any better manner. Rishihi Aurobindo said, it (Sanskri) is at on
  With all these and what we know, one can readily agree with in Irish teacher that the future of Sanskrit will be bright.
          The Irish teacher concludes with how the computer-fit, Sanskrit is looked up by the NASA. “It (Sanskrit).gives you access to a vast and liberating literature. Sanskrit describes all aspects of human life from the past abstract philosophical to the latest scientific discoveries, hinting at further development”.
          Well, Friends, we like to end our submission with the observation that this has been the best write-up on Sanskrit we have ever read, it is scientific analysis, starting from “WHY MY CHILD SHOULD STUDY SANSKRIT” to how the NASA thinks about SANSKRIT and its future. We are attaching the write-up in case some amongst you would like to enjoy the flavour of this magnificent piece at your own time.
