Indian village where people speak in Sanskrit

… “Sanskrit is a language that teaches you old traditions and values. It’s a language of the heart and cannot die,” says Sanskrit scholar Aswathanarayana Avadhani.
Many of Mattur’s young have gone abroad to study engineering or medicine and I ask if Sanskrit helps in developing a mindset that aids understanding other languages, including those used in computer sciences.
Shashank, who runs an IT solutions company in Bangalore, says: “Yes, there is a connect if you delve deep into Sanskrit. Those who have gone into Vedic mathematics [which dates back to a time in ancient India when Sanskrit was the main language used by scholars] have certainly got a logical mindset that helps in information technology.”
“I have learnt some Vedic maths that has helped me. Others use a calculator when I could just do all that without a calculator.”
