A short history of the Sanskrit language
Sanskrit is the language of India and the sacred language of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. It is one of the twenty- two official languages of India and it is spoken by around 14000 people.
The earliest documents were found in about 1500 BC and are written in Verdic Sanskrit. Later, classical Sanskrit was used by Panini, in his works which come from the 5th century.
Nowadays, Sanskrit is generally written using the Devanagari script, although other scripts have been used in the past. It is used in scholarly, literary and technical texts. You can also hear it on TV and radio and read it in the newspapers.
Sanskrit grammar is similar to Greek and Latin. Originally Sanskrit was only taught to higher caste Indians, whilst lower castes spoke Prakrits. Written Sanskrit slowly declined in use, especially when India was colonised by the British. However, since 1947 there have been efforts made to revive its use, including government sponsored learning programmes and literary competitions. In schools Sanskrit is taught as a second or third language option. It is also offered as a language in some schools in the USSA, England and Australia.
