SMVDU Katra. With an aim to get benefitted from the Sanskrit language, the School of Philosophy & Culture (SoPC) of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU), Katra is organizing a Sanskrit Learning Workshop from 1st Dec. to 14th Dec. 2018. So far more than 20 participants have beenenrolled in the course, and more are planning to join it shortly, as reported by Dr. Anil K. Tewari, coordinator of the course. Dr. Rajiv Ranjan Sinha (retd.), Professor of Sanskrit, Sampurnanand Sanskrit Vishvavidyalaya, Varanasi, is the resource person for this workshop who, on the first day, elaborated the basic structure of the Sanskrit language, and highlighted the relevance of learning Sanskrit. He cited the mantra of Rig Veda which considers the language as qualified by seven vibhaktis (Nominative, accusative, instrumental, dative, ablative, genitive, locative and vocative), three vachanas (singular, dual and plural) and three genders (masculine, feminine and neuter). The nominal and verbal words in Sanskrit originate from roots (dhatus) with the association of suffixes (pratyayas). Notably, Sanskrit is said to be the most scientific language ever known to the humanity. An evidence of its scientific nature can be seen in its recognition as the most suitable language for computational purposes. Dr. Sanjeev Jain, Vice-Chancellor, SMVDU, wished all the Sanskrit learners an enriching learning experience.
