The sem­i­nar of Konkan re­gion work­ers of San­skrit Bharti (SB) will be held at CKT col­lege in New Pan­vel. A rally will also be held as a part of the sem­i­nar, on De­cem­ber 24 be­tween 5 pm and 6 pm, to cre­ate aware­ness about San­skrit lan­guage.

SB re­gional conve nor Shirish Bhadas­gaokar and SB sec­re­tary Gu­runath Rao ad­dressed a press con­fer­ence on the sem­i­nar along with MLA Prashant Thakur on Satur­day.

The sem­i­nar will be presided over by San­skrit ex­pert Dev­dutt Sar­ode with San­skrit film Priya­manasam di­rec­tor Vinod Mankara be­ing the chief guest at the clos­ing cer­e­mony. Speak­ing at the press con­fer­ence, Thakur said, “It is an hon­our for us that we are host­ing the 2- day sem­i­nar in our city. 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.
