Sanskrit is the primary culture-bearing language of India, with a continuous production of literature in all fields of human endeavor over the course of four millennia. Preceded by a strong oral tradition of knowledge transmission, records of written Sanskrit remain in the form of inscriptions dating back to the first century B.C.E. Extant manuscripts in Sanskrit number over 30 million – one hundred times those in Greek and Latin combined – constituting the largest cultural heritage that any civilization has produced prior to the invention of the printing press. Sanskrit works include extensive epics, subtle and intricate philosophical, mathematical, and scientific treatises, and imaginative and rich literary, poetic, and dramatic texts.
The primary language of the Vedic civilization, Sanskrit developed constrained by a strong grammatical tradition stemming from the fairly complete grammar composed by Panini by the fourth century B.C.E. In addition to serving as an object of study in academic institutions, the Sanskrit language persists in the recitation of hymns in daily worship and ceremonies, as the medium of instruction in centers of traditional learning, as the medium of communication in selected academic and literary journals, academic fora, and broadcasts, and as the primary language of a revivalist community near Bangalore. The language is one of the twenty-two official languages of India in which nearly fifty thousand speakers claimed fluency in the 1991 Indian census (Pawan Goyal et al,).
