Windows 7 – गवाक्षाणि ७

It was a warm summer evening...
Nothin spl... Me, Siddharth n Bharadwaaj were jus havin some vetti talk... :)
As usual, our favorite topics like mythology, culture, linguistics n other topics were goin on... especially Sanskrit was the topic of discussion then...
We accidentally came across the word Windows and I dont remember who gave the idea of having Windows OS in Sanskrit...!
Sounded initially funny, but we came across several interesting terms in Sanskrit, as we are all eminent poets in the same ;)
Not exactly, but we have some significant knowledge in Sanskrit... :)
We started giving terms like:
मम संघटक: - My Computer
धूळि पेटिका  - Recycle Bin
आनन पुस्तकं - Facebook, etc. :)

It was fun coining terms in the most ancient language for the most modern technologies...! :)

I think Sanskrit is the mother of all languages (so do many) and although its difficult sometimes, sometimes its fun…! :) And I’ve (we’ve) loved Sanskrit and we all will. The thing is, its easy to make up words (like compound/additive words), but I wonder why it hasn’t added many, despite the grammar supporting it…!

Well, this is all we’ve done tyrin to Sanskritize Windows 7… Have a look… :)
