15th World Sanskrit Conference: Programme Schedule [Jan 9, 2012]

Today is DAY 5 of The World Sanskrit Conference, which is in its 15th year this year. It is being held in India this time around.  We hope these daily listings, which is a microcosmic view of the scope and spread of Sanskrit, will be an inspiration for all of us who love Sanskrit, and an eye-opener for those who consider it a ‘dead language.’
