DEPARTMENT OF SANSKRIT
The history of the Department of Sanskrit, DU begins with the history of the University itself. The Department came into existence in 1922 when the University had come into existence. During the first two years of its commencement, the Department ran without postgraduate students.
It was only in 1924 that the Department had one student in its M.A. program. Following the practice of the time Mahamahopadhyaya Pandit Lakshidhar Kalla, the senior most of the teachers among the constituent colleges of the University occupied the position of Teacher-in-charge of the Department.
As the Department had no faculty members of its own officially recognized some of the senior teachers from the colleges as Readers.
Pandit Lakshmi Dhar Shastri Kalla, the first in-charge of the Department belonged to St. Stephen’s College. Those days the Postgraduate classes of the subject of Sanskrit were held at St. Stephen’s College. Pandit Kalla pioneered the research programs in the Department of Sanskrit. He had come to the department with an illustrious background to his credit.
After completing an archeological apprenticeship under Sir John Marshal, he had joined St. Stephen’s College as a lecturer in October 1916. He was an elected member of the Royal Asiatic Society.
Apart from being well-versed in several Indian languages, he had the knowledge of Persian, Arabic, Greek, Latin, German, French, Russian and English. His books ‘The Birthplace of Kalidasa’ and ‘The Homeland of Aryans’ got high accreditations from the scholars across the globe. It goes without saying that his contributions in building the Department are unparalleled.
