Sanskrit is considered among the most sacred and ancient languages across nations, even if it is not widely spoken. World Sanskrit Day is celebrated to spread awareness towards the language and engage people in learning it. This year, Viswa Samskrita Dinam falls on August 12 which happens to be the full moon day of Hindu month Shraavan.
