Now, Sanskrit to give ancient technological edge to IIT graduates

Students at the Indian Institutes of Technology may soon be studying ancient engineering techniques — such as the one used by the monkey army to build the Ram Setu bridge to Lanka in the Ramayana — written about in Sanskrit texts.

Several IITs have informed the HRD ministry of plans to introduce the ancient language in curriculum — a ‘request’ earlier made by former education minister Smriti Irani to the schools.
