Vijayapura: A wholesale textile trader here has been involved in Sanskrit language propagation for over two decades and has taught the ancient language to over 12,000 people.

Ramasingh Rajput runs the “Thriar” clothing shop near the city’s Hutatma Circle and he along with his family is engaged in the propagation of Sanskrit.

Rajput was inspired by the Sanskrit camp “Sanskrit Bharati” held at Siddheshwar Sri Jnanayogashrama in the city 20 years ago, after which he dedicated himself to the spread of the Sanskrit language.

He teaches Sanskrit daily to the more than a hundred employees of his shop and all communicate with each other in the language.

Rajput has taught Sanskrit to more than 12,000 in northern Karnataka out of which 5,000 are in Vijayapura itself.

Recently, Rajput organised online Sanskrit lessons for 50 residents of a small village called Kontevvana Babala. He also taught and made more than 200 residents of Kakhandaki village in Babaleshwar taluk proficient in Sanskrit.

He even organises training camps at places where people are interested in learning the language.

Surprisingly, the majority of Sanskrit learners coming to him are illiterate or dropouts.

“Sanskrit is a secular and national language. That is why our shop employees Shaukat, Sania, Sameer, Shenaz and a tailor from Tikota town Bandenawaz too have studied and become proficient in Sanskrit language communication,” said Ramasingh Rajput.
