In a bid to ease the process, a specialised helpline with a dedicated WhatsApp number is being established. This will help the foreign students to get inducted in the virtual program without any hassle. In addition to the speech training, the scheme launched by the UP Sanskrit Sansthan will equip the foreign students with knowledge related to Sanskrit verses and rituals.
Vachaspati Mishra, the President of UP Sanskrit Sansthan affirmed that a separate set of teachers will take Sanskrit classes pertaining to spirituality and rituals. This will help the foreign students to learn about the fundamentals of the ancient language, which is often referred to as the 'Language of Gods'.
More than 8,000 registered students proclaim the success of the program
