VISAKHAPATNAM: Sanskrit that is the mother of most Indian languages does not have any takers in the Andhra University. Not a single student has come forward to take admission in the post graduation course in Sanskrit this academic year. Thirteen applications for admission had been received in April second week for a total of 20 seats. But ultimately nobody joined the course.

The university authorities did not conduct the entrance examination in the first place as there were fewer applications than the seats that were to be filled up. So, they sought to admit the students directly. Four reluctant candidates appeared for the counselling but not one of them was willing to take admission in the PG course.

In the meanwhile, the admissions director of the university sent a missive to the faculty members concerned on the need to fill the vacant seats. “The four students who appeared for the first phase of counselling did not turn up for the second phase counselling. We were helpless,” a senior official stated.
