Sanskrit Society

Sanskrit Society continued this year with a small group of the Fourth Year’s classicists and linguists. We learnt the Sanskrit characters and how to form sounds so that we could start translating the stories and different words. After we had mastered this skill, we began working on separate work at different rates with some of us working on the stories and translating, and others working through the work book. In between the stories, we learnt the grammar and sentence structuring such as noun declensions, and were introduced to new cases such as the locative and the instrumental, as well as beginning to learn the language. The stories have also taught us about ancient Indian mythology such as the stories about Rama and Sita. This year we enjoyed watching an animated movie about the story of the Warrior Prince Arjuna.
