Jhirī: A ‘Sanskrit-speaking’ Village in Madhya Pradesh
What is it about?
This article is about a "sanskrit-speaking" village in India where I spent 1-month in 2015 exploring the levels of fluency amongst the residents of this village.
Why is it important?
Not much work has been done on Spoken Sanskrit in the last few decades. It is important to look at the politics and sociology behind this linguistic phenomenon. I look at this from an anthropological perspective.
