Swamy on the Importance of Sanskrit

I recently had the privilege of attending a talk by Subramanian Swamy in New Jersey in an event marking World Hindu Unity Day. It was a high energy event and the audience was full of enthusiastic and nationalistic NRIs. Swamy gave a rousing speech on the importance of Hindus uniting. The during the Q&A the moderator asked something like – what can NRIs do to help? I was expecting Swamy to say things like lobby, petition, donate, etc.

Swamy’s response [two min video clip] truly surprised me –

If you ask me one thing that you must do as living in the US, see that your children are persuaded to learn Sanskrit. Don’t do anything else, Sanskrit will do the rest!

On little reflection, it makes complete sense. Such is the power of Sanskrit!
