The first two days I was a little confused as they were conversing in Sanskrit only. I was sitting watching them talk. I thought of discontinuing.The third day I sat automatically listening to them and found that Sanskrit is definetely sarala bhasha. We are Indians and all of our languages are based on Sanskrit. So it became easy to follow. Moreover bhagini Shobhaji’s conversation was so fluent and simple that i felt she was talking in my language.Her stories in the end were very enjoyable .she made the learning enjoyable.

Firstly, teacher had a very pleasing manner to teach; unassuming encouraging all the time. …. Never she made it difficult or too technical. Melodious voice so listening was a joy and hypnotic.
–Mrs. Prem Batra
It was very useful for me, in a way, that will help me in shaping my attitude. Even though, the content is short compared to the sea of details, I consider this as a stepping stone.
The simplicity and depth with which Dr Vasuki taught is evidence that she practises what she preaches. Her pleasant demeanor made the sessions more interesting.
Shobha ji made sure we not only learn subhashitas, but also imbibe them in our daily life! I loved the addition of a story session at the end of every class! It was such a joy to learn the pearls of wisdom along with the poetic beauty of the shlokas.
Shobha madam is extremely knowledgeable, and spoke in very simple Sanskrit. For someone who is attending a Sanskrit class first time after many years, I found the course to be very understandable and enriching. The subhaashitas taught were very unique and covered various topics.
Well thought out and designed course, chosen from wide repository of books, presented with unending smiles from start to close. Dr.Shobha Vasuki has made that as a well-sculptured art.
The sessions have given a Swadhyaya and inculcated more devotion in learning our sanatana culture and devotion to the divine language.
This course has far exceeded my expectations and I am fortunate to have been a part of this course. The idea of having the entire course in Sanskrit is commendable, and has been beautifully executed.
I joined the course just to improve my knowledge wrt Sanskrit. But what I received at the end of the course is unbelievable.
–D N Uma
Each day, two subhashitams were taken up; each subhashitam was sung line by line; repeated twice by an team-mate; and sung as a whole. All the word combinations were explained, the meaning of the subhashitam along with the moral was given in Sanskrit and English. The 30 and more Subhashitams consisted of variety of topics and were rare ones, not in common usage. To add more life to the talk, each talk was concluded with a simple story, which was very apt for the day’s Subhashitam.
Madam referred to many other subhashitas also apart from the 30 already explained. All questions raised by the students were answered in the class room. Most of the days the class ended with simple stories which had relevance to the Subhashitas taught.
