1. Sanskrit is the matrix of almost all the Indian languages. Our culture and traditional learning are wedded to Sanskrit since this has been their medium of expression. It was once upon a time the principal language of India and even of regions beyond when India's political and cultural sway had been high.

2. Even though the day to day use of Sanskrit has gradually declined over a thousand years for various reasons, the language continues to be living and as shining as ever. Perhaps the language is bound to revive and become popular with more of attention and focus bestowed upon research into various avenues of our store-house of rich knowledge. The computer culture and Sanskrit coordinate well, they say.

Sanskrit is the mother of almost all Indian languages. Without the knowledge of Sanskrit, it is difficult to understand the culture and civilisation of India. It was the lingua franca in the Vedic age. But its progress suffered during the British period. The teaching method had also been changed. Previously, it was purely traditional and now it is quite. modern. After Independence, several attempts have been made for the development of Sanskrit Education in India. The Government of India established the Sanskrit Commission under the Chairmanship of Dr. Suniti Kumar Chatterjee and its report was submitted in 1956-57.

From the very beginning, the Commission felt that the terms of reference, which specially mentioned only two items, namely (1) Sanskrit Education in the Universities and Non-University Institutions and (ii) Traditional System of Sanskrit Education, were somewhat narrow and unless these terms of reference were understood in the widest possible sense and certain other matters connected with the problem. of Sanskrit Education and Research were properly examined, the deliberations of the Commission would not be really complete. It was, for instance, necessary to inquire into the question of Sanskrit studies in Secondary Schools which were primarily the feeders of the Universities. The extent and standard of Sanskrit studies in the Universities were dependent upon the nature of those studies in Secondary schools. No subject of study could be pursued in a School or a College without reference to what the student of the subject would or could do after the completion of this education. The avenues open for a branch of study or the roles persons brought up in a particular discipline can play as educated citizens have a direct relation to the strength and continuance of that branch of study. The policy in respect of Sanskrit as, indeed, in respect of all education, must be correlated to the needs and aspirations of the members of the body politic.
