INDIA, July 25, 2010: Sanskrit scholars in M. S. University, Vadodara, are coming up with a Sanskrit daily. The newspaper, which is the third Sanskrit newspaper in the country, aims to take the language of vedas to the readers. The other two Sanskrit newspapers are published in Mysore and Kanpur.

The first copy of the newspaper — Sanskrit Vartaman Patram — will be launched in Vadodara, Surat, Bharuch, Palanpur, Modasa and Idar on Sunday.

MSU professor Praful Purohit, who ideated the plan, said: “We have been thinking about launching a Sanskrit daily for the last three years. We had initially brought out a pilot copy of the newspaper and the response was encouraging. We will be using simple Sanskrit words, which even a person with no knowledge of the language can understand. We will also include a glossary of Sanskrit words translated in Hindi, English, Gujarati and Marathi,” added Purohit.
