Mangaluru, Mar 09, 2018: A unique interactive session by Dr. B.V.K. Sastry, Founder & Chancellor of Yoga-Samskrutam University, Florida, USA was held at Sahyadri College of Engineering & Management in Adyar. Selected students of different batches and the Challengers Team along with faculty members attended and participated in the session.
Addressing the gathering as “Yogis and Yoginis” to pinpoint the identity of an Indian, Dr. Sastry went on to assert the need of becoming and be a Yogi. “Therefore you become a Yogi” Sri Krishna, the Teacher told Arjuna the student. There can be one’s own reason to support ‘therefore’.
Five students volunteered to respond to Dr. Sastry’s call to take part in a live demo of why India needs language appropriate technology to address the machine demands regarding Indic languages. Two boys and three girls were allotted roles of Hardware, Software, Applications and Standards respectively and at the centre was placed the Language. Inappropriate and mismatch components, either one or all of the four inevitably cause malfunctioning or errors.
Once all components are natively produced keeping in view the requirements of the native language, such products make the Indian citizens feel national pride. “Yoga-Samskrutam University”, Dr. Sastry said, “contributes and adds to this pride by researching into and innovatively designing and making technology language appropriate".
