Supreme Court Judge Sharad Arvind Bobde, battling for Sanskrit while addressing the ninth convocation of the Tamil Nadu Dr. Ambedkar University said that a common language other than English should be taught. He said that the suggestion was not his but Dr. B.R. Ambedkar who drafted a resolution for the Constituent Assembly, stating that official language of the Union of India should be Sanskrit. Mr. Bobde also said that Sanskrit is a universal language and mother of Indo-European group of languages. Native Language facilitates leaning and many students are left out because they don’t know English pointing out to Tamil Nadu’s objection to the NEET exam not being in Tamil. He suggested that University could perhaps look into teaching Nyaya Sastra to the student of law, which is ancient Indian logic, which is supposed to be superior to even Aristotle’s logic. Chief Justice of the Madras High Court V.K. Thailramani in her special address said that it is a matter of pride that Tamil Nadu had witnessed the growth of a large number of educational institutions, especially in the past two decades. The growth is both socially and economically by virtue of getting the quality education.
