Sanskrit Week celebration

The Sanskrit language is one of the oldest languages and it has evolved from Vedic form to Classical to its modern day usage. Sanskrit is one of the officially scheduled languages of India. The Central Board of Secondary Education, has decided to celebrate the week Aug 7-13, as the Sanskrit Week.
The celebration of Sanskrit Week would provide a medium for popularizing Sanskrit and stimulating the interest in the language by increasing the awareness about the close relationship between Sanskrit and other languages and the cultural heritage in India.

Please share at least one simple post about Sanskrit language, whether it is a quote, small story, short poems, or apps for Sanskrit learning, with the hashtag #sanskritweek

Smt. Thimmakka from the state of Karnataka, India, is noted for her work in planting and tending to 284 banyan trees along a four-kilometre stretch of highway.
She received no formal education and worked as a casual labourer in a nearby quarry. Her husband was a cattle herder.
The couple used to carry four pails of water for a distance of four kilometres to water the saplings. They were also protected from grazing cattle by fencing them with thorny shrubs.

She has been given the name "Saalumarada" which means Line of trees  in Kannada language.

Her work has been honoured with many awards including the National Citizen's Award of India.
A U.S. environmental organisation based in Los Angeles and Oakland, California called Thimmakka's Resources for Environmental Education is named after her.
