Appeal : Register Sanskrit as a second language during Census - ProHindu | hindujagruti.org

  • tags: no_tag

    • Namaste, Pranam, Vanakkam, Aadab & Good Evening,

      Our Government of India is starting with census.

      Please register "Sanskrit" as 2nd language in the form which they would like you to fill it up. There are tons of people across the globe including India who want to kill & demolish our "Sanskrit" language.

      Reasons could be anything.

      But please don't allow them to do so.

      Officers who are going to visit your home are going to ask this question to you as well as to your family members. Empower them today only. You can also think of writing it on a piece of paper and hang out that paper near main entrance door so that you and your family don't forget.

      In last census, only 14,135 fellow citizens wrote "Sanskrit" as their mother language.

      You may be speaking Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Kokani, Marathi, Hindi, Gujarati, Maithali, Bengali, Assamese, Oriya, Punjabi, Dongari or Urdu language. And that's ok with me and all.

      But please do write "Sanskrit" as 2nd language.

      Remember, on day to day basis there are tons of words which we all use as it is written in "Sanskrit".
      Let me give some example

      "Stree (Female)", "Tirth/Tirtham" , "Prasad/Prasadam" , "Muhurt/Muhurtam" , "Naivaidya/Naivaidyam", "Suvas (Smell)", "Netra/Netram (Eyes), "Jal (Water)", "Bhojan (Lunch/dinner) ", "kunku/Kumkum/ Tilak"  & many more.

      Over & above, we also give "Sanskrit" names to our kids like Narayan, Satyanarayan, Soundarya, Murugan, Ganesh, Ganapati, Ganesha, Krishna, Sri Krishna, Shrikrishna, Pinackpani, Laxmi, Saraswati, Venkatesh, Sri Hari, Shankar, Kartik/Karthik, Satyabhama, Subhadra, Ganga, Gangadevi,  & so on.
    • Reviving Sanskrit as a second language would have deep implication on the well-being of the individual and the nation .. it could heal many social wounds and bind the nation into a powerful whole due to its synthesing nature.

      Some people also give "Sanskrit" names to their software products like "Shree-Lipi" . One of the oldest & largest sold Indian language font package from India. Modular InfoTech have been giving only "Sanskrit" names to their software products and they are selling in huge numbers. i was associated with them for more than 7 years.
      Some people also give "Sanskrit" names to their businesses.

      Our temple names are in "Sanskrit"
      Our family God/Goddesses names are also in "Sanskrit", Laxmi, Ganesh, Vyadeshwar, Hari Hareshwar, Saraswati, etc.

      Our Veda's are in "Sanskrit". Our various "Shloka's" and "Mantra's" are also in "Sanskrit". Our "Bhagwat Gita" is also in "Sanskrit" and which is used every day across all the courts.

      Now the question is? When we use & speak so many "Sanskrit" words in our day to day life? Why not declare "Sanskrit" as our 2nd language & give due respect to her?

      i am sure you will not disagree on this simple observation that i have done using common sense. i am also sure you must have heard a famous quote in English and it goes like this "Sanskrit" is mother of all Indian languages.
    • Please!

      Let's spread this message all across India and all across globe where ever Indians are located. Spread this like a wild fire.

      If we send this message to 100 contacts within our network and i am sure reaching out all across India will not be a difficult task. Am i right?

      Please cooperate. Please do this service to the nation and pass on the request to as many as you can...

      You will never regret it! :)
