Our past treasure is stored in Sanskrit- be it Ayurveda, Astronomy, mathematics.....If Govt. of India declares Sanskrit as a dead language we are sure to gradually forget our great heritage. So we must all stand up and fight for this cause.

Being on of the daughters of Dr (Mrs) Chandra Dilip Sodha who loved, lived Sanskrit, as a person & as a Lecturer at a BA Arts University course in our ancient language, I think it is shocking, this state of affairs... How can the Language of the Nsadiyasukta and the Vedas ever be considered 'dead'!

The Indian Government needs a bop on the head, if you ask me....Please stop this unthinkable from actually occuring, thanks to a stupid government! A lot of us still speak, narrate stories to our kids and transliterate into and from Sanskrit. It is NOT a dead language.

the fact that we are speaking any language is because sanskrit gave them a chance to be heard , read and spoken around. sanskrit is the origin and we must not forget that.....the answer's to many a mystery remains in sanskrit and here people are trying to deem it a dead language...God save us!

Sanskrit is thge MOTHER of all languages. Its in fact the only living language. All right thinking Indians should support this cause.

Sanskrit is the only language which has a perfect grammar. English has the most illogical grammar. There is no similarity. But in Sanskrit there is no such ambiguity. So why should it be declared a dead language. It is a lively language and mother of most of the Indian languages.

If not for anything else....atleast for being a hand down from our ancestors.

This is in reply to Swati Mehta......Always remember that trivias do not prove reality. It seems that wahtever you are today is because you read sanskrit. C'mon speak the truth.....if a language is of no use in communication - how would it survive.

I think we all are thinking it in terms of sentiment and cultural aspect. The bigger question is - can Sanskrit be used as a mode of communication. Any language that fails here will die and be extinct. Moreover, a language never dies, it just gets outdated due to non-usage.
