Battlefield Overview

Rajiv Malhotra's latest book "The Battle for Sanskrit" seems to have brought a long covert intellectual war against Indian Sanskriti in open. 

At Jagrit Bharat, we see the book's release and response from the opponents as one of most strategically important developments for India and Indian heritage. We believe this important issue will be lost in the loud noises of mainstream media. A group of Jagrit Bharat volunteers have taken up the important task of keeping track of the developments on this issues. We'll strive to compile all the relevant debates on this important topics, and serve as the primary source of reference for anyone who aims to analyze the issue and get involved in the debate in the meaningful way.
