Once again I commend you on your efforts to promote our motherland – tongue. Sanskrit has indeed intrigued me, in fact it’s a beautiful language and the mother of many.
Unfortunately, residing in the UK I cannot attend however would love to purchase books relating to our culture, values and norms.
I encourage the promotion of this script, form and function. Would love to see it more on products alongside English perhaps. It should be widely accepted as the national language of India although there are many if not hundreds.
Thank you for sharing this with us and I hope to see many more fairs, exibitions and events promoting this wonderful language.

ps, Thanks again for your comment on the previous article.
You are welcome Manish, it is indeed a great event and we need much more like these not just in India but worldwide so that anybody interested can make good use of it. Hope many more such events take place in the future.
How can we learn Sanskrit? What are the books do you suggest? I am currently in US
The Sanskrit Lessons by Chitrapur Math are one of the best resources on the web to learn Sanskrit from the comfort of your home. The lessons are available in the form of PDF files.
