Lucknow, Apr 21 (PTI) Union minister Rajnath Singh today
stressed on teaching of Sanskrit to school children and said
without it they will not come to know about the culture,
tradition and heritage of the country."If children are to be introduced to the culture,
tradition and heritage of India, it is not possible without
the knowledge of Sanskrit literature in detail," he said at a
function here.Stressing on the ways and means to ensure that children
develop a liking for Sanskrit, the Union Home Minister said,
"Sanskrit books have everything, even science."
Singh said these days, by surfing the Internet for an
hour or two daily, can one can get knowledge of any subject in
20 to 25 days' time, but this kind of knowledge is not enough
for a human being."We have heard about terrorists with technical degrees or
are graduates or post graduates. They too have knowledge on
different subjects. But, this is not enough as character
building is also important. It is attained through values,
without which knowledge is never beneficial for the society,"
he said.Asserting that character building is not possible only
through education, he said it is possible through "diksha"
which is an amalgamation of thinking, direction, values and
principles and results in all round personality development.
