Sanskrit most usable, scientific language: Nishank

Talking effusively about Sanskrit, the country's rich history and culture, the minister described river Ganga as "our mother and life," and said India's conscience is deeply ingrained with science and knowledge


Kharagpur: Union Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Tuesday praised Sanskrit as a scientific language and claimed it to be the “first language of the world.”

Nishank, who was addressing the 65th Convocation of IIT Kharagpur here, said India had been the world leader from knowledge to science for ages. He said yoga and ayurveda, which had been introduced by India ages back, have “science behind it.”

The minister asserted that Sanskrit is the most usable, the most scientific language and decipherable by computer. “Sanskrit is the first language of the world,” he said.

Talking effusively about Sanskrit, the country’s rich history and culture, the minister described river Ganga as “our mother and life,” and said India’s conscience is deeply ingrained with science and knowledge.

Nishank said Himalaya “which is like Nilkantha” (apparently referring to Lord who had gulped the poison to save the world after the churning of sea in search of amrit – nector), having absorbed all poison, is saving the enviornment by “guarding against pollution of developed countries”.

Stating India is now reaching the top of the world in terms of economic growth, the minister said “in economy India is the fast moving country leaving behind China.” “In terms of FDI, India has left behind USA as number one,” he added.

The minister said to improve the ranking of degree colleges and universitiies, which have not been granted higher ranking, the government will take steps to improve the standard of education, including training 42 lakh teachers, the number being the biggest in the world.

“By improving the ranking, 3.27 crore students will be benefitted,” Nishank said. He said the new education policy is being introduced after 33 years, to benefit over two lakh students all over the country. The policy will bring change in curriculum with focus on -driven education.

The minister said as part of ‘operation digital board’, 12 lakh smart classes are being launched and as a part of the curriculum, students will be asked to plant a tree on his/her birthday to encourage plantation of trees.

IIT KGP Director Officiating Sriman Kumar Bhattacharya said a high number of 372 students were awarded PhD degrees, the all time highest in the history of the premier institute, while a total number of 2802 students were given degrees B tech, Mtech etc.

Nishank said IIT Kharagpur is the pride of the nation, which has given the country leaders in different fields, who have made India proud in various spheres.

Cautioning against the brain drain trend, the minister said he had been to Ukraine recently. “As I enquired how many Indians are there, I was told there are 15,000 students in college there while in the faculty there are 80% Indians. So the students and most of the faculty are both Indians. We have to change that by not not only giving speeches but by resolve. Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi always says so,” he said.

In line with the general trend across the West, of stagnating wages and standard of living for professional-managerial classes, socio-economic anxiety among the working class, and the resulting reversal of political alignments, as politicians try to channel frustration elsewhere. https://twitter.com/Buckyball_60/status/1466733247442743299


What can we deduce from this @ruchirsharma_1 2

A thread: Pakistani newspaper Dawn's front pages from 4th december 1971 to 20 December to see how they kept their own people in the dark. This was on 4th december, after the commencement of war on 3rd december.

When this 4 month old child and his father died due to government hospital's apathy in Worli, local MLA Aditya Thackeray was busy partying or bowing down to Mamata Banerjee.


आगर मालवा के ग्राम दिवानखेड़ी के सपूत बनवारी लाल राठौर जी ने मणिपुर में मातृभूमि की सेवा करते हुए अपने प्राण न्यौछावर कर दिए।

देश सेवा में वीर बनवारी लाल जी का योगदान कभी भुलाया नहीं जा सकता। ईश्वर से प्रार्थना है कि दिवंगत आत्मा को अपने श्रीचरणों में स्थान दें।

ॐ शांति!!
