A highly motivated Sanskrit scholar dedicated to understanding the deeper sense of the Vedas and to promoting Sanskrit as a living, modern, spoken language. Thereby seeking to create awareness about Bharat’s rich culture and to help restore a sense of pride about her invaluable heritage.
Anuradha, a former student of the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, Pondicherry, has been closely associated with Sanskrit for the past 20 years. After graduating from the Ashram School in 1998, she pursued her passion for Sanskrit through her Masters and her M.Phil degrees. During her Post Graduation, she joined a voluntary organization called Samskrita Bharati, a world-wide movement dedicated to promoting Sanskrit as a living language, and was trained in a special methodology of Teaching called “Edutainment”, a combination of Education and Entertainment.
Fascinated by the SOUND of this language, she believes in making others experience the joy of its rich vibrant words. She got an opportunity to realize this when she was appointed by:

A person of varied interests, she has also won a scholarship from the University of Geneva to do a course in Human Rights.
Furthermore, she has enriched herself by participating in National and International Conferences on Sanskrit and psychology.
Currently doing her Ph.D to understand the deeper psycho-spiritual content of the Veda with special reference to Sri Aurobindo, she is also a Sanskrit teacher in Auroville, an international township.
When asked about her hobbies, she cannot resist mentioning, “speaking and making others speak Sanskrit!” besides, dancing (Kathak & Folk Dances), acting, painting, travelling, understanding other cultures, playing football and camping.
