REVIEW FOR TALK ON ORAL TRADITIONS OF SANSKRIT, BY PROF. SWAMINATHAN
With a friendly professor demystifying the nuances of this classical language, Sanskrit might just start making more sense than the shlokas you learnt by rote and scored a cent per cent in and yet remember nothing of.
La Makaan is holding a talk on Oral Traditions of Sanskrit, by Professor S Swaminathan, on 23rd October, from 3pm.
The talk will throw light on orality, alphabets, grammar, verse & syllable structure, scientific notations, number systems and ornamentation in the Sanskrit language. The program will also illustrate Sanskrit's contribution to modern day mathematics, astronomy and science.
Professor S Swaminathan has taught in IIT Delhi for 32 years, and holds an interest in classical Indian music and art. He has authored the book, 'Mahabalipuram: Unfinished Poetry In Stone'. His next target is to write a book on the Kailasanatha temple, Kanchi.
The event is open for all. Please contact 96427-31329 for further details.
