|After saffronisation of education campaign, Union HRD Minister Murli Manohar Joshi has briefly shifted his focus on Sanskrit. Releasing the first set of A Sanskrit Self Study Programme at Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan (RSS), the Union HRD Minister said that it has become necessary now that Sanskrit should be made IT-friendly. "No other language will be required for teaching Sanskrit if it is done with the help of these simple Sanskrit teaching books," Mr. Joshi said. However, the traditional Sanskrit scholars have not been very helpful in the growth and progress of the language. It is lamentable that the scholars are not showing much interest in this area, complained Mr. Joshi.
According to RSS sources, the Sanskrit software is a Delhi-grown programme package and it would offer Sanskrit learning in an informal, friendly, easy-to-learn manner and in a jiffy.
The traditional Sanskrit teaching method using Hindi or other languages would now be replaced, and Sanskrit will be taught through this programme in 25 centres across the country funded by HRD Ministry.
Mr. Joshi’s decision of computerisation of Sanskrit comes after his HRD Ministry recently backed out from a proposal to make Sanskrit compulsory in schools following stiff resistance from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and NCERT.
