Sanskrit is an Indo-European language and is regarded as the classical language of Indian literature. Sanskrit was used in India in earlier times in the way Latin was used in Europe, as a common language via which different people with different first languages could communicate with each other. In the course of time many other languages were influenced by it. The language is also very old. The general consensus is that Vedic Sanskrit, a predecessor of Sanskrit, was spoken 1.500 years before Christ.

In the 2001 Indian census, not many more than 14,000 people said that they spoke Sanskrit as their first language, although almost five million speak it as a second or third language. However, many people only have a passive understanding of Sanskrit, and some linguists are of the opinion that it is actually a dead language, like Latin, even if it is still an official language, because it has failed to adapt to modern culture. That said, ‘Sanskrit is not as dead as other dead languages,’ to quote one linguist. The Hare Krishna movement, for example, uses the language a great deal on official occasions and elsewhere the language is used in the media and in certain forms of music.
Whereas Sanskrit was for centuries only a spoken language without a script, the Devanagari alphabet developed over the course of time in which the language could be written. This alphabet is used by other Indian languages as well.
