Tirupati: The four-day long 14th All India Sanskrit Students Talent Festival (AISSTF) organised by Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha (RSVP) concluded here on Friday.
The talent festival was attended by 33 Sanskrit institutions from nook and corner of the country with participation of 400 students. During the last four days, the Vidyapeetha wore a 'Mini Bharat' look with rich cultural diversity from across the country.
Padma Shri awardee and secretary of Sanskrit Promotion Foundation, New Delhi, Chamu Krishna Sastry, participated as the chief guest at the closing ceremony and pointed out that Sanskrit language provides solutions to contemporary problems.
A student can do wonders by being perfect in listening, writing, speaking and reading the language.
Sanskrit students should have good thoughts as thinking is the basis of every milestone. One should think extraordinarily and execute the thoughts in a right manner. Every Sanskrit student should have sound knowledge in computers in tune with the present day scenario.
He advised the Sanskrit students to excel in civil services, judiciary, entrepreneurship and politics to enrich the Sanskrit language. Vice-Chancellor of Vidyapeetha, Prof V Muralidhara Sharma, described Krishna Sastry as the synonym of Sanskrit. He said Sastry has been guiding the RSVP in all aspects.
