Description
About the Book
This book is mainly a compilation of articles which were primarily presented at the Sanskrit Week Programme organized by the Special Centre for Sanskrit Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, and New Delhi from 7-14, August 2006. A few articles have, however, been added later on.

Sanskrit and Other Indian Languages feature the influence and interaction of Sanskrit with Prakrit, Hindi Apabhran0a, Urdu, Bangla, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Assamese, Punjabi, Kashmiri and Gujarati. It covers various aspects of mutual reciprocation between Sanskrit and other Indian languages such as - conceptual, structural, grammatical, historical, linguistic, colloquial as well as literary. Issues of oral and written forms of language as also of textual translations have been dealt with herein by Sanskrit scholars who are well-versed in respective Indian languages. Finally, there is an article which argues for Sanskrit as a "National Language of India".

This book is a modest attempt to convey the inherent thought-pattern of Indian mind basically enshrined in Sanskrit but expressed through variety of verbal forms across the country.

About the Book
Shashiprabha Kumar is Professor and Chairperson in the Special Centre for Sanskrit Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, and New Delhi. She is the author and editor of many books including Vaishesika Darsana mien Padartha-Nirapana; Relevance of Indian Philosophy in Modern Context, Bharatryath Darsana; Facets of Indian Philosophical Thought; Self, Society and Value; Kala-Tattva-Cantina; Veda as Word; and Sanskrit Across Cultures.

Introduction
New continuation of the convention set up since its establishment, the Special Centre for Sanskrit Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, celebrated yet another Sanskrit Week 2006 on the occasion of Sravani Purnima and decided to publish the proceedings under its Tenth Plan Research and Publication Programme. Accordingly, the theme for the series of lectures to be delivered under this programme, this year, was chosen as Sanskrit and Indian Languages.

We are glad to report that the Sanskrit Week celebration succeeded in generating awareness about the contemporary relevance of such themes highlighting the mutual influence and interaction between Sanskrit and other Indian languages which is not just a historical or linguistic fact but is also a very vibrant and visible living phenomena.

Esteemed Vice-Chancellor of JNU, Prof. B.B. Bhattacharya, while inaugurating the programme, expressed his happiness Dyer the appropriateness of the theme and wished speedy publication of its proceedings. It is very heartening to note that in the Sanskrit Week ?programme 2006, we were fortunate to have two sitting vice-chancellors, three sitting vice-chancellors and one former viceancellor as speakers in the programme who not only inspired with their benign presence but also obliged us by providing ileitis al text of their speeches for inclusion in this book. We are 7eally beholden to them as also to all other speakers and: contributors.

Prof. Vachaspati Upadhyaya, who was the chief guest at the inaugural session of the programme, highlighted the underlying influence of Sanskrit on the thought-pattern of Indian literature in general. He did not treat the topic in its literal, limited sense but delved deep into the essential features of ways of thinking of Indian people and traced them to Sanskritic sources. His article covers a comprehensive canvas of literary creations across the country.

Prof. Namwar Singh, who chaired the inaugural session in the programme, has been kind enough to write a foreword to the volume. He has, in his own inimitable style, dealt with the theme from the point of view of relation between Sanskrit, Hindi, Prakrit and Apabhrarliga. He has argued that while deliberating upon the topic "Sanskrit and Other Indian Languages", we have to take into account both the scholarly as well as popular points of view.

The keynote address in the programme was delivered by Prof. Kapil Kappor. He enunciated the theme from the aspect of historical linguistics and highlighted structural as also the verbal reciprocation between Sanskrit and other Indian Languages. We sincerely regret that in spite of our repeated requests, he was not able to provide us the written form of his paper in due time and we could not wait any longer since we were forced to work within the stipulated period, this being the closing of the Tenth Plan.

The first lecture in the series was delivered by Prof. Satkari Mukhopadhyaya. His presentation titled is indeed a tribute to the continuity and inherent variety of linguistic enterprise on Indian soil. Dwelling mainly on the literary sources of Bengal, he has sought to demonstrate the deep impact of Sanskrit on its vocabulary and expression.
