More about the special day
Reportedly, the Indian government dedicated celebrating World Sanskrit Day back in 1969 with the aim to promote the revival of the language. The day holds its significance in promoting young minds to learn the language and make it a part of their daily communication.
One of the key reasons why the day is observed on Sawan (Shravan) Purnima is that the day is associated with knowledge and wisdom. The celebration coincides with the festival of Raksha Bandhan which is being celebrated by some brothers and sisters on August 31.
