Chinmaya Vishwa Vidyapeeth, Veliyanad, Kerala in Collaboration with the Samskrita Bharati organised one-day orientation called अनुवाददीपकम् – समकालीनग्रन्थानाां संस्कृतानुवादकौशलप्रदम् एकदिनात्मकं प्रशिक्षणम् on 21 January 2023. The event was sponsored by ‘Bharatiya Bhasha Samiti’ of the Ministry of Education, Government of India.

Since the new discipline is growing day by day, there are very few literature texts available of such disciplines in Sanskrit. This programme provided training in Sanskrit translation to faculty members, scholars and research scholars.

The key objectives of the programme were—promotion of the Sanskrit language, creation of study materials in Sanskrit and to provide an ideal version of a specific text in Sanskrit in the context of translation to other languages like Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu etc.

Dr. K. V. Vasudevan, Scholar and retired teacher was the chief guest. Dr. L. Sampath Kumar. (Head,  School of Linguistics and Literary Studies, CVV) was the main resource person and Dr. M. Sudarshan Chiplunkar (Asst. Professor, School of Linguistics and Literary Studies, CVV) was the main co-ordinator of the workshop.

The programme began with Mangalacharanam sung by Ms. Vinamra Herle (second year BA Sanskrit) and with the lighting of the lamp by the dignitaries. Dr. M. Sudarshan Chiplunkar (Asst. Professor, School of LLS, CVV), the coordinator of the workshop, gave the welcome address. Dr. P. K. Shankara Narayanan who was the Joint Coordinator for the event was the MC for the inauguration. 

In his address, Dr. K. V. Vasudevan highlighted the purpose and importance of the workshop. He sighted examples of how other Indian languages are influenced by Sanskrit words. He recommended the participants to translate in a way that is suitable for Sanskrit. He also expressed his views on the importance of the Kosha-s in the context of translation. The talk gave a clear idea as to what to expect from the orientation. Later, he was honoured by Dr. L. Sampath Kumar.
