Sandeep Maheshwari’s Controversy on Sanskrit Subject forcefully imposed on Students ( Youtube Video ) ;



As we know that recently India’s Prime Minister Narender Modi has modified the educational system in India and has declared to invest 6% of India GDP in education sector. By this educational policy of PM Modi, Sandeep Maheshwari organised a debate with some Indiana youngsters, in order to take views of Indian youth regarding the education system of India.


In his words he said;  The subjects like games and sports, vocational education, skill development, personality test education etc, should be provided to the students because these students can bring our India towards success and developments. We know that our Indian youth is very much talented, but they do not have opportunities to express their talent in front of the government.


He said;   Subjects like Sanskrit, Spanish, French etc, are just communicable languages, which are non-technical and scope less. And we observe that in some schools and colleges, these linguistic subjects are forcefully imposed on students, even if the candidate is not willing to choose.


Why Sandeep Maheshwari said these words on Sanskrit Subject?


According to him, India’s education system is good but it needs some more improvements regarding the interest of candidates. The Indian youth is fulfilled with the talents but not even get any kind of opportunities to express their talents in front of the public and are not having good guidelines. So to overcome this kind of trends, we were discussing with the youth that what the Indian youth actually wants?


The motive of Sandeep Maheshwari in this discussion ;

The talented Indian youth does not get opportunities and does not have proper guidelines about their talents. Let us suppose an example of an uneducated candidate from a remote area if he plays kabaddi game with his full skills but unfortunately, he is not conferred with the educational knowledge about the Kabaddi game and how to get selected for the Nationals and Internationals.


Without attaining the educational knowledge of the respective game, how that candidate can promote himself in his talent. So this is the reason, why Sandeep Maheshwari is saying about the modernization of the education system to attract an uneducated candidate to join education with their full efforts to go ahead in their future era.


Why some people do not agree with Maheshwari’s statements;



According to some people, Sandeep Maheshwari has not said an appropriate statement regarding the educational system of India. He impeached the Indian culture and not agree with the govt. the decision of modifying the education system of India. He discussed this matter and made a video of at least 12 minutes. And now, he has deleted that video of impeaching the Indian Sanskrit language and subject.

Some people have also declared him as a Jihadi lover and according to them, he is connected with any political party and has taken a bribe to impeach Indian Sanskrit language. That will create a bad impact on Indian culture.

People said;   We are Indians and being the citizens of this country, it is our duty and responsibility to protect our nation from this kind of man like Sandeep Maheshwari.


The reaction of Sandeep Maheshwari after this controversy ;



In his words, he wants to apologize for his debate on the modernization of the education system in India. His motive was not to target any religion or community, he just aimed to take the views of Indian youth regarding the educational aspects, benefits they get and the futuristic approaches of them regarding the education.

Sanskrit meaning ” Perfected or refined “, is one of the oldest attested human languages. It belongs to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European family. The oldest form of Sanskrit is Vedic Sanskrit that dates back to the 2nd millennium BCE. It is also known as the mother of all languages.


Sir William Jones;  The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure, more perfect than the Greek, more copious than more exquisitely refined than either.

Arthur A. Macdonell;  The intellectual debt of Europe to Sanskrit Literature has thus been undeniably great, it may perhaps become greater still in the years.

Influence on other Languages;

  • Sanskrit is said to be the mother of all languages.
  • The language was the first ever to exist in the form of speaking and then in the form of script that develops into Brahmi script.
  • It spread from India to China, where they wholeheartedly regard Sanskrit to be the source of their regional languages.
  • If somebody knows Sanskrit, then he/she can easily understand many languages such as Hindi, Bengali and Marathi.

Conclusion ;

As Sandeep Maheshwari said for the modification of the education system in India, we concluded that it depends upon the government, how it reacts regarding this issue. Indian govt. has changed the education system in India and will invest 6% of GDP on education. According to our point of view, Subjects should be provided as per the candidate’s interest in the respective field, which will be beneficial for him. And the Sanskrit language should only be given to those candidates who are interested to study and to rest of all, we should provide them subjects as per their interests.
