Dear Scholars,

Hearty Congratulations to Professor Radhvallabh Tripathi Ji, and his team
of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan staff members for their painstaking efforts
in making the 15th WSC a grand success. As you all know the 15th WSC was
oragnised by Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan in association with the IASS in
New Delhi last week. The week long programs, academic sessions, Pandita
parishat, Kavi-sameelanam etc were held successfully. It was a fantastic
event that every participant enjoyed.

The WSC was inaugurated by the Prime Minister in the presence of Kapil
Sibal, HRD Minister and Prof. V.Kutumba Shatsry and Prof. Radhvallabh
Tripathi on the podium. Thousands of scholars and heads of the institutions
witnessed the program. All the academic sessions and deliberations started
with a spl lecture by Prof. Ashok Aklujkar were remarkable. The books
"Sixty years of Sanskrit studies in India and Abroad" and a souvenir
"kalpataru" edited by Prof. RV Tripathi and brought out by RSkS were
welcomed by the scholary community.

The Computational tools  for Sanskrit Analysis that have been developed by
Sanskrit consortium of seven Instt headed by Prof. Amba Kulakarni have been
released by the PM. These tools were distributed to all delegates free of
cast by TDIL, Govt of India. This was noteworthy.

The entire conference has a great impact on the studies of Sanskrit in
National and International level.

I hereby invite the views from the scholars who attended the conference.

warm rgards,

अथ चेत्त्वमिमं धर्म्यं संग्रामं न करिष्यसि।
ततः स्वधर्मं कीर्तिं च हित्वा पापमवाप्स्यसि।।
तस्मादुत्तिष्ठ कौन्तेय युद्धाय कृतनिश्चयः।
निराशीर्निर्ममो भूत्वा युध्यस्व विगतज्वरः।। (भ.गी.)
