Department of Hindi
Department of Hindi, Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady was established in 1994 with a view to propagate, popularize and promote Post graduate and Research studies in Hindi Language and Literature. Within these 11 years of its establishment, Department has set up New courses like PG diploma in Translation besides MA, M.Phil and Ph. D. programmes.
We have Five Regional centers with MA course, Thiruvananthapuram, Ettumanoor, Thrissur, Tirur and Payyanur. We have an up-to-date syllabus with interdisciplinary approach for all courses offered. Every year we have a good rush for admission in all courses including the latest integrated PhD programme. At present 41 Research Scholars are engaged in Research work. 30 Research Scholars have been awarded PhD degree in Hindi, under Faculty of Indian Languages. As per records available, all our students who have passed out of the courses have been engaged as civil servants and teachers in various parts of India and abroad.
There are 22 Teachers (1 Professor, 2 Readers and 19 Sr. Lecturers) in faculty position and 8 of them are working in the Main Centre, Kalady. All our Teachers have been engaged in Research Activities and produce Research papers in leading Hindi journals. During these years of establishment, the Hindi Department in the University has been able to get the first funding from an outside agency for a research project by ICSSR, New Delhi. The project has been successfully completed and the report has been submitted. Again we have sent another Major Research Project on Sanskrit based Re-readings to the University Grants Commission and then approval is yet to be received.
We have produced a book, “Adhunik Hindi Sahitya: Vivid Aayam” on contemporary Hindi literature compiling the papers from our faculty members with external experts. Most of our faculty members have their own books published and have received acclaims all over these years. We have been conducting National Seminars and extension Lectures in every year with eminent Resource persons from various parts of the country.
We propose to start functional and theoretical classes in functional Hindi and Spoken Hindi for all concerned, including foreign nationals at the Main center as well as in all our regional centers, as on demand. A candidate can opt for admission in any of our regional center as per her/his choice. This is an opportunity for the student to accumulate regional and local level knowledge and ethnic varieties of our land. We have optional and inter disciplinary courses in M.A. and M Phil, in various subjects like history, Philosophy, Indology, Sociology, Women’s Studies, Translation Studies and in collaborative language like Sanskrit, Malayalam and English. It is well known fact that Hindi language learning and better knowledge in Hindi literature have been accepted as an essential category all over the world today. We can offer classes from learning level to research activities at inter-national level for all needed.
