`Samskrita Sandhya' held at Tuticorin

The Tuticorin chapter of `Samskrita Bharati,' a movement with Delhi as headquarters, conducted `Samskrita Sandhya' at Annammal College of Education here recently.

It was intended to popularise Sanskrit as a language for national integration.

Delivering keynote address, N. Sriram, State organiser of Samskrita Bharathi, said that it is a myth that Sanskrit was difficult to learn.

He explained the importance of the language as a tool to explore resource materials from ancient periods.

"Sanskrit was even the `lingua franca' of our country, many centuries ago," he said.

Plays and dances in Sanskrit were conducted. A. Joycilin Shermila, Principal, Annammal College Of Education For Women, distributed certificates to candidates, who successfully completed Sanskrit courses conducted last year.
