Re: Decline of Sanskrit
I have a different view. 1000 yrs ago, when there were no buses, trains or cars, Acharyas like Sri Ramanujacharya have travelled 1000's of miles to Kashmir from TamilNadu and spoken to the king of Kashmir. He even travelled to Delhi and spoke to the Sultan's people. He held discourses and debates with many learned scholars living in diverse parts of India. Similarly Sri AdiSankara Bhagavadpada has travelled all over India, from North to South India and established many procedures for deity worship. These acharyas not only spoke to the Brahmanas, the kings and his men, but travelling by foot all the way, they have spoken to common men as well. All this shows to me, Sanskrit must have been very much in practice commonly.
