Skill development minister Ananta Kumar Hegde on Wednesday said Sanskrit was going to be the coding language for future supercomputers.
Sanskrit could be the better language for computer algorithm design, Hegde told reporters after delivering an address on skill development at Calcutta Chambers of Commerce.
"While we are becoming too dependent on English in our country, we become unaware of the fact that eminent scientists of the world are coming to the view that Sanskrit is the language for future supercomputers," he said, adding that in many European universities Sansktrit was being taught again.
