    Development of science can be known through sanskrit manuscripts

    Sanskrit is the language enriched with many sciences in it. Many of us do not know this and only the persons know about Sanskrit can understand this. As the Sanskrit was the languages spoken and written in early period, many manuscripts were written in Sanskrit and many of our people are crying that the importance given to Sanskrit is just politics and is not correct actually. As Dr.Abdul Kalam very much inclined to Sanskrit (here one should note that though he was a Muslim, he Know Sanskrit well as many of us says that the Sanskrit is a Brahmin language). He stressed the importance of Sanskrit learning.

    Moreover, the village people of Maaththur, Hosahalli of Karnataka State (the villages are in the banks of Tunga river) are speaking sanskrit and in addition to that they are speaking language
    Sangethi.

    Many science and development researches are derived mainly from our Sanskrit manuscripts.

    In many European countries particularly Germany, the ancient Sanskrit scriptures were studied and hidden treasure of knowledge was deciphered.
    However in present era we find that we are lagging much behind the developed countries as far as development in the filed of science and technology is concerned.
    Perhaps there is not much gain in only eulogizing our past. We have to come forward and demonstrate to the world our capability. Why we are not becoming able to invent or discover something worth while which is useful in making our day to day life easier.
    There are few Sanskrit universities in India like the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, Varanasi; Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, New Delhi; Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, New Delhi; Sadvidya Pathashala, Mysore and Karnataka Samskrit University, Bangaluru to name a few.
    Sanskrit is listed as one of the 22 scheduled languages of India and is listed as an official language of the state of Uttarakhand.

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

    "If a language has many meanings for a word, it is ambiguous, but when Sanskrit has many meanings for a word, it is rich!" says Dr. Ramanujan, who headed a project on 'Computational Rendering of Paninian Grammar.'

    In each and every manuscript of Vedas, puranas and shastras the things are described in Sanskrit are about science only. The meaning of Geography in Hindi 'Bhu-Gol' is a Sanskrit language which means 'Earth is Round'. It is not proven by the modern scientists as earth is round, it is already proven by our ancient writers like, Vyasa Dev, Valmiki, Vishnu Sharma, Kalidasa, Chanakya, Banabhatta, Ashtavakra, Adi Shankara and many more. Science is originated in India which is scripted in Sanskrit.

    You are right Mr. Ramachandran Pattabiraman. Its true that Sanskrit is the base for development of science. Researchers in many foreign universities are studying Sanskrit manuscripts. But, we are neglecting our own language and therefore scientists etc,. of other countries are taking patents for what we already discovered through those manuscripts. The Tamil language film 7aum Arivu is slightly related to this concept.

    Let us continue learning.

    Yes it is the fact that India takes pride with its ancient language called Sanskrit which dates back to many era and its scriptures hold good even to this day. What is surprising me is the fact that though our education scholars know about the importance of this great language, never it was stressed to learn the same. Now we are seeing Intermediate students are forced to learn this language out of compulsion and thus some knowledge is being imparted to students. In fact I would advise Sanskrit be taught from the primary level and if other communities would protest, then they would be given option to learn their own language. Like that Sanskrit can be given fillip.
