BJP MP from Madhya Pradesh's Satna Ganesh Singh on Thursday said that according to US-based research, speaking Sanskrit on a daily basis prevents diabetes and cholesterol, and boosts the nervous system.
He added that as per a NASA study, computer programming done in Sanskrit is flawless. Singh was speaking on The Central Sanskrit Universities Bill 2019 in Lok Sabha.
More than 97 percent of the languages in the world, including few Islamic languages, based on Sanskrit, Singh said. Union Minister Pratap Chandra Sarangi, who spoke in Sanskrit on the bill, said the language is very flexible and we can speak a single sentence in many ways.
He also said various English words such as brother and cow had derived from Sanskrit. Sarangi said the promotion of this ancient language will not impact any other language.
Participating in a debate on the Sanskrit Universities bill, he also claimed that according to research by US space research organization NASA, if computer programming had done in Sanskrit, it will be flawless.
