Relevant Individuals and Organizations

Know the players, and understand their roles and positions on specific topics in the battle for Sanskrit. While the battle has been covert for long, the current developments in the industry are pressuring prayers to clarify their positions. We are not shy in naming the names and providing enough context, eventually we are all stakeholders in this battle all of us need to find our own place as well.
