"All the Vedas and Upanishads have been connected to Sanskrit. Sanskrit is the lingua franca that facilitates people of different parts of the country communicate with each other. Hence, it's high time that people gird up their loins to protect the language, which is losing sheen under the influence of English, globalised language," Vinay Bhaskar said.
