Muscat: Indian School, Al Ghubra, organised an interactive session for students of Sanskrit with Dinesh Kamat, all-India organising secretary of Samskrita Bharati. Kamat stressed on the need to revive Sanskrit and focused on the multi-fold benefits of learning this language.
He added that although it was a neglected language in India, scientists and mathematicians in other countries had recognised the value and importance of Sanskrit.
He mentioned that inventions in the field of Mathematics, Science, Astronomy and the introduction of the number zero and the decimal system had their roots in Sanskrit.
The need of the hour was to create awareness of the language as it not only helped students pick up other European languages faster and grasp mathematics and science better, but resulted in all-round development of the child.
