@vrishchikan@NChozhan@zaynarifx@nyasarn@HRajaBJP Vedas...? Few used to say that ‘Vedas’ are the most ancient literature. Vedas comprises the spoken or sung literature, which continues with the oral tradition of the #Sanskrit epics. As Sanskrit does not have a script of its own it even not counted as a language.
@vrishchikan@NChozhan@zaynarifx@nyasarn@HRajaBJP Westerners became interested in it after Sir William Jones "discovered" #Sanskrit , as it were, and then extolled its virtues at a meeting of the 'Bengal Asiatick Society' in 1786. Taking cues from Jones, linguists began looking for links between Sanskrit and other languages.
