Sanskrit to be mandatory in govt schools in state
Sanskrit will be made a compulsory subject in the curriculum of the government schools in Haryana from the next academic session.
State Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma announced this while speaking at a function organised by the Bharat Vikas Parishad here.
Addressing the function organised in connection with a national-level competition of Hindi and Sanskrit Group songs at Saraswati Vidyalaya here, Sharma said as Sanskrit was considered a divine language and had been the soul of Indian languages and culture, the state government had decided to make it a compulsory subject from classes VI to X. A separate platform known as Haryana Sanskrit Board would also be set up to promote the language, he said.
