Sanskrit is treated as the only binding emotional thread to maintain the feeling of unity in diversity. The kind of feeling created by the creation of states on linguistic ground is absent when one encounters Sanskrit. There is a general belief that Sanskrit is a dead language and it has ceased to be the medium of cultural communication.

The present volume entitled Sanskrit Writings in Independent India is sufficient to demonstrate that Sanskrit continues to be a very powerful and popular medium of cultural communication through the ages. It is a powerful medium because scholars have kept on writing in this language even after Independence besides creative and critical writings.

It is amazing to see how much literature was written in Sanskrit of all genres and all forms all over the country during the last 55 years. Literally, all aspects of human life have formed the subject matter of these works. More or less in all regions of the country, works have been written in Sanskrit voluminously in prose and poetry. It is not the case that only literary writings have taken place, but writings in all forms have been produced in Sanskrit during the post-Independence period.

The present volume is an outcome of the National Seminar on Sanskrit Writings in Independent India organized by the Sahitya Akademi at Pune in collaboration with the Centre for Advanced Study in Sanskrit, University of Poona.
