The secretary of Samskrita Bharati Chinmay Amshekar said that Sanskrit language does not belong to any caste or religion; it is everyone’s language so more children should learn this language.
Amshekar was speaking as a chief guest during 55th founder’s day celebration of Janta High School, Mapusa wherein Sanskrit language as a new option for students of V to VII was introduced by the school management.
He also said, “Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar while drafting the Constitution of India wished to make Sanskrit as national language and even the Muslims who were on his panel had agreed and supported his opinion”.
The function commenced with the lighting of traditional lamp at the hands of chief guest Amshekar. The chairman of school management Jagannath Mayekar, trustee Tushar Tople and school head master Ratnakar Chatim were also present on the occasion.
The Janta HS was the dream of ex MLA of Mapusa Raghunath Anant Tople who wished to spread education to all children, especially the needy ones. Initially the school started imparting education in high school with special evening night classes for those who were working during the day.
From 2012 onwards primary school was started in Marathi language.
Tople said, “The management is planning to take the school to another level from high school to technical institute by starting new institution shortly.”
