LONDON, ENGLAND, August 31, 2020 (creat.in by Lakshmi Kaul): I noticed a sudden explosion of social media posts learning a new skill or language. It felt almost unreal as I saw many teenagers flaunting who had learned Sanskrit. However, the image of a Sanskrit class is quite contradicting as I think of our millennials learning this indicative language!
Visions of a Gurukul environment appear from students singing shlokas, decorating traditional clothing and performing the yagna. In the Covid-19 era, this could at best result in an online session with a sadhu or sadhvi wearing saffron or white clothing and speaking against a background of tanpura. In the midst of these images, the shock appears, Dr. See Rishi Handa and his Sanskrit classes. His personal journey is even more fascinating than someone who was born and raised in England. He attributes his interest in learning Sanskrit to his Hinduism. So I decided to interview him and find out about Sanskrit learning in the West, especially for millennials who have little to do with Indian cultures or traditions of Bharat.
Read this interesting interview with Dr. Rishi Handa, Director of Sanskrit and Religious Studies, St. James ‘Senior Boys’ School, London, under “Source” above.
