Cambridge has finally closed the door on Sanskrit as a hallowed subject of undergraduate study, nearly one-and-a-half centuries after it first established a chair in the 3000 year old language.
The Times of India sought – and received – confirmation of the university’s decision within hours of Cambridge honouring Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with a doctor of law degree, in what some scholars believe to be the most cynical form of “tactless academic marketing”.
Slap on MM cheek in Cambridge
1977 Atal Bihari Vajpayee, External Affairs Minister of India, addressed the UNO General Assembly in Hindi language. Dr. Singh proudly spoke in English at the time of getting Doctorate Degree at Cambridge. If he has shame for National language Hindi, than he should use Punjabi in her speech. He and Sonia Gandhi knowingly to dishonor the Vandemataram remained absent on September 7, 2006when whole nation was singing Vandemataram as decided and instructed by the HRD Minister Arjun Singh on behalf of his Govt..
If we ourselves dishonor our language, our Sanskrit, our culture, our national song to honor others’ then how can we expect from others.
Smith, who has taught Sanskrit to Cambridge undergraduates for 22 years said the decision was “tactless” in its timing and skewed in its objectives. “They are doing this at a point of time when they are honoring Manmohan Singh, soliciting benefactions from wealthy Indian businessmen and seeking students from South Asia,” he said. He said he had no new undergraduate students seeking to learn Sanskrit in this academic year, which began a week ago.
Smith added with unconcealed anger at Cambridge and other Western universities’ increasing propensity to run themselves as businesses that employ MBA-speak: “There are some subjects simply worth doing. This is a language that has been going 3,000 years and hasn’t stopped yet. You cannot understand the culture of the Indian sub-continent and the world outside it without learning Sanskrit”.

Are alumni of Cambridge Manmohan Singh follower of his predecessors other alumis Lord Macaulay and Mohammed Iqbal who were greatest enemies of India?
Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay (1800-1859) Historian’s followers are now writing history of India to enter in HRD Ministry’s NCERT and IGNOU.
Mohammed Iqbal: Right hand of Jinnah to divide India on the basis of two nation theory through the Muslim League which is still taking breadth in India and sharing power in the Central Govt with the Congress.
As a chief guest of the Jamia Millia Islamia’s convocation the President A.P.J. Kalam quoted Macaulay’s 1835 speech in British Parliament, ‘I do not think we would ever conquer this country (India), unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.'”
Macaulayites Congress leaders
Macaulay’s biographer G.D. Trevelyan wrote: “A new India was born in 1835. The very foundations of her ancient civilization began to rock and sway. Pillar after pillar in the edifice came crashing down.”
Now remaining Macaulayites Congress leaders want to born a new India to ruin our glorious ancient civilization as described by the Supreme court in its various judgements and Foremer President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
Manmohan should follow Bugti a Oxford Alumi
Oxford-educated tribal chieftain Baloch freedom fighter Bugti became vociferously critical of the military dictatorship after General Musharraf assumed power in a bloodless coup on 12 October 1999. Bugti’s key legacy lies in his patriotic death, and in Musharraf’s apparent miscalculation of the tribal elder’s popularity.
Wilful betrayal implies some sort of hatred
At the time of praising Oxford and Cambridge he feels shame to mention our historical Institutions which are now being made ‘camp of gundaism’ by the congress and comrades. There are three notable Oxford alumni of India: Indira Gandhi, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan president 1962-67 and Manmohan Singh. Manmohan Sinh should read Radha Krishnan what he said about Hindutva and Hinduism. Is India made by Oxbridge returns? I never say patriots to those who are unable to see their inner side.
I recall an incident. Before 40 years in my young age I was puzzled to run press and to publish my Hindi weekly. Every time I needed money from my father to run these. The principal of the school in which I was the student was helping nature to me. He guided me and said that I saw always outside towards your father instead of your inner side. He asked me to make a list of such persons to whom I had to recover bills against ad or stationery. I made a list and I went to collect money. I wondered that I had collected much recovery. Our govt looks always abroad instead of to develop our recourses.
If PM is still slaves of British Rule then he should resign at-once.
Christian Missionaries are giving good education to call spirit of Christ in the schools so they can be converted in Christ in due course. Dacoit kidnapped in revenge a son of another, gives him food and education and makes him dacoit to take the revenge.

Are these praiseable services with good intention? If not then why highly qualified dignitary says “Cambridge made me”
Salute those who invented Manmohan, Sonia and like other clones!
PM Manmohan Singh’s remarks praising British Raj in Oxford University was a wake up call for nationalists and patriotic. Repetition of it is today to say “Cambridge made me”. Really he is a mixture of loyalty to 10 Janpath and slavery for British rule. He is a great freedom fighter along with Sonia Gandhi to blame Hindu organizations.
“When I became the Finance Minister of India in 1991, our Government launched the Indo-British Partnership Initiative.” PM said in the Cambridge. And when he became PM in 2004, his government launched the Indo-Pak partnership to counter terrorism by joint mechanism and wants to sale nuke security and secrecy of India in the hands of America.
“Ghar Phoonk tamasha dekh”
I recall an incident. My friend told me a real story of his uncle. His uncle was too much loyal towards his friends. He took costly things including cash from his home to give his friends. He caught and beaten by elders. Then he called his friends in a certain time in the night out of his home. He threw the cash and other materials from the upper story roof to outside. His friends collected them. Our govt is like that.
UK is a Christian country but a Catholic queen can’t be heir of the British throne according to the prevailing lawa there but we Indians are the great in the world. Families of the farmers who are doing suicide have loaded Cathoic Christian Italian directed government on their heads. There should be a white paper of Govt how many suicides of farmers were in NDA rule and how many are being now. Sonia say his son says to rule the country is the birth right of Gandhi dynasty. Photo of Rahul Gandhi has been fixed now in the Congress Office along with others who ruins the country. Secular part of fouth pillar media is overlapped by the photos of such leaders. Still they say themselves ‘Buhijivi (intelligencia)’.
Jaggery attracting ants-terrorists
Sonia Gandhi is busy in grooming her son. Manmohan is jumping everywhere. Monkey cuts a little corner of fruit and throw it. Repetition of this is the habit of a monkey. Our PM never fulfill any promise or any policy. Luckily he got a sword of PM post. Bad luckily he is wounding the security of our country and safety of our people. His sound and walk is sweet jaggery attracting ants-terrorists.
Change for PM chair
Dr. Singh already said that intead of a politician he is an academic. Then why he should not resign from PM post. Pt Nehru said that he is accidentally Hindu but his name begins with Pt. He never decalred publicly that he was not a Hindu. Even his daughter married Muslim or Parsi but Nehru made her Indira Gandhi to declare her as a Hindu. Nehru was a Kashmiri Pandit but now Kashmiri pandits are in the streets of Delhi as a refugee. How can be possible for me to write here sins and mischiefs of Nehru Gandhi dynasty in this article?
“There is External Affairs Minister’s vacancy. There is Labour Minister’s vacancy. I have to (fill them) and I will do so shortly.” – – – Prime Minister Manmohan Singh told journalists on board his special flight while returning from Johannesburg to New Delhi.
