Sanskrit in Parliament


While I tweeted this - https://twitter.com/drisyadrisya/status/953622076522340362 - I wanted to a post on the instances in which Sanskrit has been spoken in Parliament ( Indian .. for now ) debates

Here is from a random search, I hope that the list grows as I come to know more .. and in future

1)  http://parliamentofindia.nic.in/ls/debates/vol7p20a.htm Shri H V Kamath quotes MahaBharata 5.35.49 ..  see http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/mbs/mbs05035.htm 

2) na bheetO maranaadasmi .. Vajpayee, 1996 May-June .. see https://kalpanamuzumdar.wordpress.com/tag/dooshita/ or https://www.indianscriptures.com/gems-subhashitah-part-1/


(Clearly, Vajpayee's is perhaps much more natural and correct pronunciation) 

3)  amantraM akSharam naasti .. see my previous blogpost http://drisyadrisya.blogspot.in/2006/01/more-of-my-fav-shlokas.html (it should have been amantram akSharaM ... etc)


4) jaanaami dharmam na cha mE pravRuttiH | jaanaamyadharmam na cha mE nivRuttiH ||
