About Us


Let us bring Sanskrit back to our daily life. This is the vision with which samskrutam.com started. It is an effort to spread Sanskrit using the available online technology; and aims to provide an effective source of learning and knowing Sanskrit language and literature.

"Our vision is - bringing Sanskrit back to our daily life, by facilitating a collaborative platform on 'Sanskrit & Indology' studies, where all can come together to learn as well as share their knowledge on the subject."

In early 2005 Biswajit Dash, Jyoti Prakash Mishra, Indrajit Dash and Anuja Satapathy all from the city of temples, Bhubaneswar, as a group started the online initiative. On 23rd April 2005 samskrutam.com was published. Initial contents on Sanskrit were prepared and published. From that time much more contents on different aspects of Sanskrit have been added to the website. Over the time other like minded people started extending their help to make samskrutam.com achieve its aim of spreading Sanskrit. The members are from different sphere of life and profession. Here is a brief introduction to each of them.
