The News Minute| November 24, 2014| 4.54 pm IST Sanskrit has been making the rounds in recent news with the HRD Ministry trying to make the language compulsory in schools. Sanskrit has become a buzz word on social media, even the first Sanskrit animated movie being made in Tamil Nadu. Read: The first Sanskrit animated movie: Punyakoti That's not all. Even the German Embassy is having a Satsang it seems. (Though that was announced prior to the controversy) To add to the Sanskrit bandwagon, the Big B recently tweeted a Sanskrit version of the most famous dialogues from the movie ‘Sholay’. The list of dialogues, which later made an appearance on reddit.com, when translated to Sanskrit makes for a funny read. It also, perhaps, puts the issue of Sanskrit in schools into perspective.  (Image courtesy: www.reddit.com)
