Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday said he wants students to learn and understand Sanskrit and not "mug it up for exams" as so many beautiful things were said in the language. "The beauty of the language is that those who understand it will never be a restriction on someone's path and it is one of the reasons why I want people to understand the language," Sisodia said while addressing students after a school-level competition on the language here.

While urging students to try to implement its teachings in their lives, he said the aim of the government, through these programmes, "is not to make Sanskrit popular, but to make life beautiful with it".

"We don't want a particular section but 100 per cent children to get a good education and this will help in building the nation and I want that in building the nation, there should be a role of Sanskrit as well."
