Samskritam in Popular Culture #2

This is a superb rendition of a few Rks from the Rig Veda shown in the Bengali Movie Nouka Dubi (2011)

Sung beautifully by Srikanto Acharya, this is a wonderful expression of weaving our पैतृकधनम् into mainstream movies...

@inditoot can you please check why the video quality is dramatically reduced? Is it a compression setting that kicks in automatically when uploading?

How do we expand the role of Samskritam in भारतीय Popular Culture?

Apart from our texts, literature and art, how do we incorporate Samskritam in songs, movies, cartoons, social media and the like?

To explore this important topic, collating the use of संस्कृतम् in movies here...

नोदेति नास्तमेत्येषा न वृद्धिं याति न क्षयम् ।

स्वयं विभात्यथान्यानि भासयेत्साधनं विना ॥ ५॥

कामः सङ्कल्पसन्देहौ श्रद्धाऽश्रद्धे धृतीतरे ।

ह्रीर्धीर्भीरित्येवमादीन् भासयत्येकधा चितिः ॥ ४॥

आन्ध्यमान्द्यपटुत्वेषु नेत्रधर्मेषु चैकधा ।

सङ्कल्पयेन्मनः श्रोत्रत्वगादौ योज्यतामिदम् ॥ ३॥

नीलपीतस्थूलसूक्ष्मह्रस्वदीर्घादि भेदतः ।
नानाविधानि रूपाणि पश्येल्लोचनमेकधा ॥ २॥


रूपं दृश्यं लोचनं दृक् तद्दृश्यं दृक्तु मानसम् ।
दृश्या धीवृत्तयः साक्षी दृगेव न तु दृश्यते ॥ १॥
