In order to revive the traditional Sanskrit schools of Bengal, known as 'tol' in Bengali, the state government has created a university under which would be brought all Sanskrit colleges and tols. Bengal has had a hallowed heritage in Sanskrit education and scholarship, and Kolkata and Nabadwip in Nadia district have been the primary centres of Sanskrit education through tols, the official sources here today said. The new university is creating a set of rules and regulations, and taking steps for improving the syllabus, for the almost 400 traditional schools. The state government is also setting up a centre for Sanskrit literary activities and research at Nabadwip, the design for the main gate of which, in the pattern of the tilaks worn by the traditional Sanskrit pandits, has been created by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Twenty six crore has been sanctioned as the initial amount for the centre. With these initiatives taking shape, Sanskrit education and propagation are getting the much-needed encouragement.UNI BM
