Sanskrit Sansthan holds extension lecture

An extension lecture on ‘The relevance of Sanskrit in present times’ was delivered today at Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, Shri Ranbir Campus at Kot Bhalwal, by Prof Shridhara Vashishtha, former vice-chancellor of Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeeth, New Delhi.

Former Advocate General, DC Raina, was the chief guest and president, Dogra Brahman Pratinidhi Sabha was the guest of honour while Principal of the Campus, Yash Pal Khajuria presided over the event.

In his keynote address, Prof Shridhar Vashishtha said Sanskrit has been relevant in all times. From the ancient times to the modern, it has contributed hugely to the development of a massive corpus of knowledge, which even today astounds people with the vast range of its intellectual enquiry.

Chief guest, DC Raina said that in many countries Sanskrit is taught to students because it improves pronunciation. Today, Sanskrit is relevant not only for India, but also to the whole world.

Earlier, in the presidential address, Prof Yash Pal Khajuria said that promoting and propagating Sanskrit is the need of the hour. He expressed satisfaction that Dogra Brahman Pratinidhi Sabha is planning to start a Sanskrit school and hoped that one day it would be affilitated to Sansthan as Adarsh Vidyalaya.

The welcome address was delivered by Prof Chandrasekhar while the vote of thanks was presented by Dr Chandra Mauli Raina.

The programme was ably conducted by Sharat Chander Sharma.
