"People ask the Supreme Court to solve the dispute. What can the courts do (in this issue)? Only the Kanchi Acharya can solve the problem," he said at a function here. The Kanchi Acharya, who was present, merely listened with a smile. At the function held to mark the centenary of the Motilal Banarsidass, an Indological publishing house, the Acharya honoured three Sankrit scholars: R. Balasubramaniam, B.M.K. Sharma and K.V. Sharma.
Hailing the publishing house, the Acharya said it had perpetuated the richness of Indian culture and tradition through its books on Vedic sastras, ancient Sanskrit texts.
The Pondicherry Lt. Governor, K.R. Malkani, said India had survived foreign occupation and was "coming up in a big way" in the comity of nations because of its cultural superiority.
Siniruddha Dash, the head of the Department of Sanskrit, Madras University, said, thanks to the books brought out by the Motilal Banarsidass, the university had now decided to introduce a new postgraduate course in Applied Sanskrit.
Narendra Prakash Jain, chief executive officer, Motilal Banarsidass, said the publishing house, started in Lahore in 1903, had brought out several Indological books to spread the Indian culture, history and heritage.
