People, who believe that it can be a good initiative if implemented well, like Mr. Naushad Shaikh the Director of Creative Academy Pune, that, according to the Ministry of Human Resource Development students at Indian Institute of Technology shall be taught different aspects of science and technology that forms the part of Sanskrit texts. The Gopalaswami panel report revealed that Atharavaveda, Vaisheshika Darshana etc. are treasure houses of scientific concepts which are hitherto studied from Science point of view. Further mentioned, here are hundreds of works like Siddhanta Shiromani, Vriksha Ayurveda, Upavana Vinoda, Mayamatam, etc. to name a few, which are of great relevance in the context of research and innovation, accordingly, students must be urged to learn Sanskrit language, especially with reference to study of works which contain scientific knowledge.
