Sanskrit was born and nurtured in India and in course of time became the mother of many languages worldwide besides a host of regional languages, it continues to be a source of inspiration, treasure trove of knowledge and a symbol of universal brotherhood. These virtues of the great language need to be taken good care of. There is hardly any region or district in India where Sanskrit is not studied in some form or the other. This volume 1 of Sixty Years of Sanskrit Studies presents a comprehensive view of the status and trends of Sanskrit studies in India (volume II takes up the scenario of Sanskrit studies in some other countries of the world). It is a compilation of expert papers that survey the state of Sanskrit studies in the different states/union territories of the country in a systematic manner. The individual papers begin with an analysis of the position of the Sanskrit language in the states of India. They cover various aspects of teaching, spread of popularity, research and publications in Sanskrit language and literature. They also deal with the Sanskrit academies established by the state governments and discuss the Indological research journals being brought out by various academies and institutes as also journals in the Sanskrit language. Scholars herein explore attempts made at investigating the inter-relationship of Sanskrit with medieval literatures in other languages or the regional literatures. They particularly focus on grammar, epic literature, Sanskrit religious and secular literature besides the manuscripts of other kinds. They also examine the evolution of great centres of Vedic studies in India, such as Pune, and attempts made to rediscover the corpus of the lost sakhas and later Vedic texts. This volume will immensely interest students and scholars of Sanskrit studies and Indology who are keen to know about the present status of the Sanskrit language and literature in India.
