About the Book

Modern Sanskrit Literature: Tradition & Innovations: Many people believe firmly that Sanskrit is a tradition bound one and reforms or innovations are not acceptable to it. Based on this belief they conclude that Sanskrit literature has no relevance to the present day society. Over the centuries, Sanskrit remained unchanged without bothering about the tremendous changes that are taking place in the society and that is why the number of writers in Sanskrit is fast dwindling. Now it is time to subject these ideas to test to prove their correctness of otherwise.

The papers included in this book are an exhaustive survey of the recent Sanskrit literature and an extensive assessment about its relevance to the contemporary society. Sanskrit literature has been made richer, both in the form and content, by the authors of the 20th century, who are very much open and alive to the contemporary developments and problems and who are enthusiastic about introducing innovative ideas into Sanskrit literature in order to enrich it further. It was also admitted that still much is to be done to widen the field of Sanskrit and this can be made possible by the participation of more number of Sanskrit scholars. Having its roots firmly struck in the ground the eternal and speaking tree of Sanskrit should blossom new flavour and speaking the fragrance of which will be carried to every root and corner of the world.
