- The Census of this country has started from 09.02.2011. In their
questionnaire, they will ask our mother tongue and also 2nd language. As far
as possible, in this census, please show Sanskrit as your mother tongue
or 2nd language. We may say that Sanskrit is the base for all Indian
languages. It is the unifying Language in which our Cultural and Spiritual
Traditions are enshrined. Remove and eliminate this Language and you can
destroy our Culture.
Mentioning of Sanskrit by more people will enable the language get bigger
slots in Doordarshan and other benefits from the Central Government.
Otherwise we will lose out and hence our culture will lose out.
Please also pass on this information to as many as possible.
