The Vedas, Upanishads, Epics and Puranas, which are in Sanskrit language, are not limited to philosophy and religion alone, but have within them very many subtle and hidden references of modem sciences too. The Atharvaveda, the ancient Sanskrit literary piece, consists of a lot many references of Mathematics, Chemistry, Botany, Metallurgy, Astronomy and the Ayurveda. Charaka and Sushruta, in their Scriptures on Ayurveda, deal with several diseases and their remedies, including surgery as well as plastic surgery too. During ancient times though the main focus was on Religion and Philosophy(Darshan), yet the achievements in other fields related to life activities were no less by any means.
The Sanskrit language is considered by the ignorant as a dead language, which in reality is not true. It has got a lot in itself to offer to the modem world. Each and every 'Akshara" (alphabet) of this language has a science behind it. The very existence of the Sanskrit language, when compared in its ancient galore, with other languages like Hebrew and Aramaic, that are no more in existence show the superiority of the Sanskrit Language and the omnipotent reason for its existence. The purity of the language too has been maintained, right from the Vedic times till this day. The Sanskrit language, with its ancient galore, vast literary compositions, perfect grammatical structures and other linguistic and philosophical aspects, has established supremacy over otqer languages.
The linguists of the computer world too have started looking afresh towards this language and its unique and perfect grammar, which may, in the future be universally accepted for its uniqueness; and would become computer friendly in the areas of Programming, Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence.
