If you want to learn about Indian history and culture without the extremely biased eyes of a foreigner, you need to learn Sanskrit. But, unfortunately, it is taught so poorly in schools, that this question arises. The real questions should be, "Why is sanskrit taught so poorly in schools?" "What steps should the government take to increase the standard of sanskrit education in schools?"
I like to blog about various topics ranging from education in IITs to social issues in India and US. All opinions and views presented here are my own and not of my employer.
