As one of the oldest Indo-European languages, Sanskrit still manages to hold its own in many parts of the country. Considered more as a classical language, it finds importance by being taught in many schools and colleges in the country. The Sanskrit language has a rich tradition not only for religious and philosophical studies, but also finds its place of pride as a language for scientific and technical writings. The language finds wide use in many of the religious and cultural rituals in Hinduism and Buddhism in the form of hymns and chants. The Government of India too is emphasizing on the widespread use of the language and its study. For this reason, it is one of the 22 languages listed in the Indian Constitution.
