tttShimla 2nd  November, 2015: Governor Acharya Devvrat stressed upon generating awareness about Sanskrit
language and added that it should be adopted as second language in schools
in the state. He said that he had taken up the matter with the State
government. He was speaking at the closing ceremony of four day long Inter
Campus Youth Festival of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan at Balahar in district

source of all wisdom as sacred Vedas and all other religious scriptures
were written in this language. He said that youth should learn Sanskrit to
be able to understand the knowledge available in these texts which were
known not only in the country but also across the world.  He said that the
scholars of Sanskrit should make people aware about the scientific

observations and teachings of sages as accurate.
