In its efforts to familiarise students with Indian values, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) plans to celebrate Sanskrit Week in affiliated schools next month. Schools can organise Sanskrit-related activities during Sanskrit Week that will be celebrated between August 7 and August 13, 2014.

Schools can also participate in a national-level competition. Students (Class 9 to 12) can record short speeches of less than two minutes, develop apps and games in the language, compose poems, conduct essay competitions and Sanskrit Shloka Antyakshari for classes 6 to 8 as well. Students can send their short speeches on WhatsApp to 07042745234 latest by July 20, 2014. “The objective is to encourage students and teachers to help young learners take interest in the language,” the Board said in a release. The schools can send the report on the activities to CBSE latest by August 31.
