  2. TARKSHYA Project R&D PROJECT PROPOSAL On Technology for Analysis of Rare Knowledge Systems for Harmonious Youth Advancement (TARKSHYA) Dr. Ramanujan P. Centre Head, C-DAC, KP, B’lore

  3. Objectives • To prepare an authentic content for use on web with retrieval features on the important but rare areas of traditional knowledge and wisdom contained in the ancient texts. • To derive the benefits of the treasure of information hidden in the vast repositories of manuscripts by properly locating, identifying, cataloging, verifying and transcribing manuscript contents subject-wise. • To train teachers, researchers, and students and lay public on the way to preserve, study, propagate, and benefit from these invaluable treasures. • To develop the necessary technology, tools and utilities • To enable us to take pride in our historic, mammoth task carried out selflessly for centuries on medium that would last far longer than the creators, which is ecologically the soundest alternative, for harmonious co-existence of all living beings. Inclusivity is the hallmark of this exercise since all regions, scripts, cultures, languages, customs, arts, humanities, sciences, skills etc. get represented fully. Dr. Ramanujan P. Centre Head, C-DAC, KP, B’lore
