कलाशालायां यदा वयं पठन्त्यः आस्म, तदा प्रसिद्धतया संस्कृतजनैः एवमुक्तमासीत् संस्कृतं गणकयन्त्राय उचिता भाषा इति। अनया चिन्तया भृशं प्रभाविता अहं पठनात् परं हैदराबाद् नगरम् अगच्छम्। तत्र 15 दिनानि यावत् उषित्वा CALTS विभागे विषये किञ्चित् अपठम्। तत्तु प्रायः 1% एव भवेत् यतः तेषां कार्यं बहोः कालात् प्रचलन्नस्ति। नैजस्थितिहेतोः (due to personal reasons) तस्मिन् विभागे संशोधनं कर्तुम् अक्षमा अभवम्। ततः परं मम दृष्टिः व्याकरणे आसीत्। न केवलं शब्दानां रूपनिष्पत्तिः ज्ञातव्या, परन्तु सम्पूर्णव्याकरणशास्त्रस्य स्वरूपं ज्ञातव्यमिति आशा उत्पन्ना।
In my college days, I was completely taken by the idea which was floating around that Sanskrit is the most compatible language for computers because its grammar is very structured. This link, though 41/2 years old, gives a very beautiful look at why Sanskrit was ever considered as a computer language. There are further discussions on this topic to say whether Sanskrit can actually be used as a programming language though it seems to be a far cry from reality. Yes, it can be used for a few tasks but a programming language?
We as students of Sanskrit should face reality and try to highlight only points that can be relevant and viable to the modern world. Anything beyond that is a classic case of pulling wool over one’s eyes. Medicinal info, psychological aspects, management strategies, linguistics, arts and above all, philosophy of life are some of the areas I would personally choose to talk about.
