SANSKRIT-The Divine Language

Article Summary   by:MAgrawal     Original Author: magrawal
ª
 
SANSKRIT-The Divine Language[BR] [BR] Sanskrit developed as a first language with the civilization that nurtured in the eastern part of the world. In no course of time it emerged as a most scientifically drafted, aesthetically evolved and methodically formulated language based on a highly analytical grammar. To say that Sanskrit moulded itself into various accents and absorbed different changes conducted on its purity to enable surfacing of numerous dialects that gradually expanded as independent languages is a palpable fact. Hence, to connect the language universally with the people across the length and breadth of the Indian region does not beseech exhaustive researches. Ample research work has been done on theories surrounding the origin of the language. According to certain beliefs, Sanskrit was formulated by the goddess of literacy, Maa Saraswati herself at the dawn of civilization. She bestowed the task of making the language known to the masses; to learned hermits and saints. They then carried the legacy further and educated people to be able to communicate through written and spoken media. However dubious this theory may sound, the part which speaks about saints educating people seems to be true to the core. They constituted the most learned and the most respected sections of all strata of the society, so in every probability, this section appears to be the teaching ones. More so because talking of origin of Sanskrit means talking of an era before the onset of any division of society in terms of caste, religion or sect. This indicates a time ahead of the rise of Buddhism, Jainism, Islam, or any other religion or cult, sect in the sub continental region.
