Attapur: A 10-day Sanskrit spoken language camp concluded on April 24 at Club House, Pearl Country, a gated community, Attapur. Former Advisor of AP CM Parakala Prabhakar was the chief guest.
As part of the closing ceremony of the 10-day Sanskrit camp, the students presented before their parents, family members and others what they learnt in the 10 days. In order to make this entertaining they presented it in form of short skits, songs and a few advertisements, all presented in simple Sanskrit language. The 10-day camp was organised by Pearl Country Society and supported by the Sanskrit Bharati which was founded in 1981 as a movement to develop Sanskrit.
The main objective of the camp was to revive the lost language as Sanskrit has in own essence and it the primary liturgical language. Around 40 students ranging from age 7 to 70 years participated. Sanjeev, Head of Samskrita Bharati, Telangana, said that Sanskrit was the mother of all mother tongues (languages) in India and learning this language makes one familiar with most Indian languages.
Speaking on the occasion, Parakala Prabhakar said that the people generally talk about their mother tongue, but Sanskrit was the mother of all Indian languages. He recommended that everyone learn to read and speak Sanskrit.
