    • Synopsis
    • What is Sanskrit? Is it only a dead ancient Indian language or a whole cosmos of ideas, notions, emotions, and habits, which influence the entire culture, and tradition of India? The picturesquely shot documentary moodily explores 'this Sanskrit thing ' and offers a range of intense personal interactions with practitioners of Sanskrit in India with insights into how it’s even evolving and grappling with the digital world of today. The film also delves into Sanskrit's deep influences in rituals.
