Mahant asks Balwant Thakur for promotion of Devvani Sanskrit through theatre

JAMMU: Mahant Rohit Shastri, President Shri Kailakh Jyotish Avim Vedic Sansathan met Balwant Thakur Director, Swami Vivekananda Cultural Centre, Johannesburg (South Africa) and director (Designate) in Indira Gandhi Centre of Indian Culture, Port Louis (Mauritius) here today at Natrang Studio Theatre.
During the meeting, Mahant asked for inclusion of Devvani Sanskrit in theatres in similar way like Dogri to promote Sanskrit language through theatre artists.
From this platform of drama in theatre, many Sanskrit lovers will get an opportunity to perform and get some money for their livelihood.
Mahant Rohit Shastri said Devvani Sanskrit is the mother of all languages, and the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir had contributed significantly to the literature.
This sacred land has produced many renowned Sanskrit poets and scholars i.e. Abhinav Gupta, Kalhana, Bilhana etc. In recent history, Maharaja Ranbireshwar wanted to make Jammu as the Kashi of the North and as such had invited many Sanskrit scholars from Varanasi to develop Jammu as a major seat of Sanskrit Knowledge and literature.
Balwant Thakur has assured Mahant that he will definitely do something in this regard so that the Sanskrit lovers get more opportunities.
