Language is one of the key tools forming the basis of unity among diversities. English has tied this world due to its simplicity. Urdu has tied the Muslims together and Hindi has tied the Hindus together. While there are some positive conclusions about all languages, we will look at Sanskrit as a language for its maturity. Why is it called a scientific language? We will find that the maturity of Indian culture was killed the day Sanskrit lost its importance and it was killed for those who lost the knowledge of Sanskrit. The Long Leaders have continuously worked for bringing Urdu over Sanskrit, making sure that the sense of being matured is lost on the long run – obviously if the Voice dies, one is lost in the world of expressions alone. Voice of Hinduism is Sanskrit and why Hindus, it is a say – Sanskrit is the mother of all languages. Isn’t it the moral responsibility of the country to respect and keep the mother healthy?

We call Sanskrit as the mother of all language for reasons. One, Sanskrit is the oldest language known to humanity. Two, Sanskrit is yet the most scientific and most matured language. Third, as it is scientific it develops a level of intelligence in its speaker. Fourth, knowledge is very easily transferred through this language as the language is such that it allows memory to grow sharper – this was proven in ancient days when most of the learning used to happen verbally and none of the student used to forget that was taught, as the language allowed them to bring concepts and words to same space, not allowing much possibility of varied and modified presentations.

Such is the language of Sanskrit that even one word of it can allow an individual to write books in other languages. That is how we find our Sanskrit readers and saints of India to be the most effective speakers on the globe. What is stopping us then to evolve this science back?

If we look at language construct of English, we find all vowels of English using one of the "Matras’ of Sanskrit the so called vowels as "a’, "e’, "i’, "o’, "u’. Thus, the basis of English also seems to be Sanskrit and English has realized only 5 vowels out of many "Matras’ of Sanskrit. We have similar language constructs in nearly for all languages, Sanskrit being the oldest surely has produced them all.

We have Vedas as the oldest book in Sanskrit. Seeing the maturity of Vedas, it is quite understandable that Sanskrit and its relation to such high philosophy must be another few thousands years old that what is predicted by modern Historians. In fact, it is known to Hindus that Sanskrit being a natural and scientific language must have existed since creations. Anyway, the world’s greatest creations Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagwad Geeta, AyurVeda, Purana, Mahabharat, and Ramayan – all had been in Sanskrit. This in no way can be falsified that Sanskrit was the speaking language of ancient India. And amazingly these languages have survived ages and yet are in original form.

The derived languages of India are very close to Sanskrit, but yet they do not gain an importance as high as Sanskrit. Children learning Sanskrit, by the natural virtue of the language, tend to develop intelligence and memory far more than children getting educated in any other language. In effect of the scientific nature of the language, communication of children improves. The language being natural, inculcates a sense of natural understanding, thus creating children of higher understanding about nature, life and God.

The word "Sanskrit’ is a combination of two words – "Sanskar’ and "Krit’; "Krit’ meaning "Inculcating’ and "Sanskar’ meaning "Essence of Moral Values’. Thus by its meaning Sanskrit means a language that has the capacity to indoctrinate higher values in an individual.

Despite of these amazing facts about Sanskrit, our political leaders have shown nearly no interest in promoting Sanskrit in schools. Instead, they have hideously driven strategies to kill this language, as is always visible from their policies. It is now, up to every Parents to decide, how they want to bring up their children – their children exposed to the drawbacks of western education system thereby falling into a directionless path and developing loss of individuality or they want them to hold on values and develop a sense of identity through highest morale and understanding about matter, life and God.

Sanskrit can play an amazing role in reshaping the highest philosophy into practice. Sanskrit in no way comes against the modern scientific knowledge, rather it envelops them in true shape, and it delivers them with the sense of natural parameter attached. Hindu scriptures in Sanskrit goes doubtlessly to inculcate patience, tolerance, concentration, confidence, faith, positive attitude and strong will in any individual who religiously study and practice it.

It is under a prolonged conspiracy that despite of means to grow high morale personalities, we find youths of modern age adopting dead personalities. It was Mughals who destroyed Sanskrit literatures whatever they could with barbarism, which was followed by British who deceived the whole mass about superiority of English and deprived the fighting group of their precious strength – Sanskrit. With loss of Sanskrit, India is loosing its cultural strength, its valuable high morale youths, and its character of producing Gods on this land.
