Hi,

The mother of all Indian languages, Sanskrit seems to be losing its place
in the modern world. But Mambalam Samskrita Vidyalaya, (a FREE sanskrit
institution imparting the knowledge of this classical language to everyone
without having any differences in age, sex, caste etc) is one of the few
institutions keeping the ancient language alive.

Mambalam Samskrita Vidyalaya, started in the year 1955, is entering into
its 50th year. This institution was founded by octogenarian
founder-principal, O.R.Rajagopalachariar, who considers Sanskrit as his
breath.

Interestingly, many sishyas who studied under him are working as Sanskrit
professors in all leading colleges. There are many sishyas from varied
professions like lawyers, Doctors, engineers, IAS officers..who are still
studying under him.

Here this sanskrit school even conducts the VAGVARDHINI SABHA every
Saturday to help students discuss in Sanskrit and share their views.

This institution coaches students for the Chittoor Samskrita Basha
pracharini sabha. Totally 6 examinations are there. Exams are conducted on
an half-yearly basis. FYI, Kovida(5th examination) is equivalent to BA
degree and Vidyabhooshana(6th exam) is equivalent to MA degree.

At the end of the course, what the students can boast of is the vast
knowledge that they have gained.

Now the institution has entered into Golden Jubilee year. They have
planned a year long celebrations and the final celebrations will be held
during January 2005.

All the three sons of Rajagopalachariar swami have inherited their
father's love for the language and apparently have a very good flair for
it.

At a time, when college and school admissions come for a price, here's a
man who believes in imparting knowledge free.
