The interaction is going to be of high standards and will boost the image of the city.”
Thakur said, “Sanskrit recognition in our country is on the wane. The fact is that internationally there is a lot of curiosity in the language because of its rich literature, books on mathematics, astronomy, the holy books, life sciences among others.”
“The meet will discuss how Sanskrit language can be spread far and wide and presented as an easy and attractive language.” said Bhadasgaokar.
