In an attempt to promote the ancient language of India 'Sanskrit' among the people of Delhi, the AAP government has decided to open 75 learning centers across the national capital. In these centers, a three month certificate course will be offered to the interested participants.
The government is actively working on the plan and has already constituted a committee which is in charge of designing the syllabus. The course will be offered thrice a week and each class will be of two hour duration.
Sisodia, the Education Minister said that the aim of the government with this move is to educate the people in the ancient language, the primary sage of which in present time is only limited to the worship. He further said that Sanskrit is taught in schools but the main focus is on the mere grammatical and technical aspects of the language.
“The course will focus more on the practical knowledge of the language which is connected with day to day life. Almost all households worship and conduct rituals, but blindly follow what the priest conducts without understanding their relevance as all language evolved scientifically,” Sisodia told a press conference.
Earlier, government has announced the opening of the clubs which will help in promoting Hindi and other regional languages.
