Literally from Kashmir to Kanyakumari 
Samskrita Bharati, an All India movement to popularize spoken Samskritam, literally spreads Samskritam from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Last year, shikshaks of 10 day spoken Samskrita Shibiram from all states converged in Jammu and conducted shibirams in 300 places in Jammu region. This year, Kanyakumari district witnessed 131 shibirams in which over 3,600 persons learnt how to speak in Samskritam. 80 shikshaks and shikshikas from all the 4 southern states converged in the district. The shibirams were conducted in the premises of schools and colleges and also under street light in some places. The common closing function of all the shibirams was held in Kanyakumari on January 12, 2014 coinciding with the 150th jayanthi of Swami Vivekananda. 

Bala Saheb Deshpande remembered 

On December 25, 2013, the mango town of Salem witnessed a huge gathering of vanavasi brothers and sisters joyfully reciting vanavasi songs to the accompaniment of traditional vanavasi drums and flutes.
