Department of Sanskrit

      Sanskrit Department was established in 1968 at the inception of the college.Sanskrit, an ancient and classical language of India in which the first book of the world Rigveda was compiled, has a vast body of literature like Vedas, Brahmana-Granthas, Aranyakas, Upanishads and Vedangas.

      Panini (500 B.C.) had a great influence in the development of Sanskrit as a language. Today, the correctness of Sanskrit language is tested upon the touchstone of Panini’s Ashtadhyayee. Literary and spoken Sanskrit both followed Panini’s system of language.

      Sanskrit is the mother of all Indian languages representing Indian heritage and culture. It is said to belong to Indo – Aryan or Indo Germanic family of languages which includes Greek, Latin etc. William Jones said – “Sanskrit is a wonderful language” and remarked that Sanskrit is more perfect than Greek, more copious than Latin and more refined than either. It is noteworthy that though ancient and classical, Sanskrit is still used as medium of expression by scholars throughout India and other parts of the world e.g. America, and Germany. Sanskrit is included in the list of modern Indian Languages in the 8th schedule of the constitution of India.

      It is the language with perfect grammar which is being developed into a computer language by IITs, Sanskrit Universities and many national institutions. Sanskrit has been the source of later languages and literature in India. Pali and Prakrit were first to develop from Sanskrit.

      This language encompasses within its fold arts, science, commerce, law, economics and so on. It is a major language for character building because it has many sayings that are useful for development of human body, mind and soul.

      To enhance the quality of student’s mental ability, quiz competitions (Shloka Pathana, Padyavaachana, Gadyavaachana) about mythology, classical literature & grammar are held regularly. Inter-departmental Essay writing, Elocution and Singing competitions are also conducted. Class room and oral tests on Grammar studies, student seminars, recitation of words (shabdas) and roots (Dhatus) individually and collectively to improve communicative skill are conducted for all sections. Guest lectures are also arranged. The faculty members judge various competitions conducted by the other departments of the College. The department conducts remedial classes for the students who are irregular & weak in the subject. French is offered as second language for the first year and second year undergraduate students
