Sanskrit is simple yet versatile and has therefore been accepted globally in the context of digital performance for a langauge, Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said today.

“Sanskrit can be simple and at the same time versatile. That is one of the reasons today in the digital era we have realised what versatility this language has, that it is best accepted globally for anything to do with digital performance for a language,” she said.

No other language, European or others including Indian, “really can stand up to the challenges of language blending with the digital demand,” she said unveiling the digital campus of the 111-year old Madras Sanskrit College here.

“And that is where Sanskrit scores far ahead becuase it is very structured,” and due to a unique grammar, she said.

The ancient language “has adapted to technology so easily,” she added.

The college said it had partnered with ‘Classle’, a digital learning solution provider, to make Sanskrit available for all through its digital platform.

“The Digital platform would act as a center of excellence for Sanskrit from beginners to scholars all around the globe,” a college release said.
