\'Samman Rashi\' presented to Sanskrit scholar P K Jose

THRISSUR: In recognition of his efforts to propagate Sanskrit language, 84-year-old scholar and writer P K Jose has been awarded a yearly grant of Rs 24,000 for lifetime.

The grant is under the scheme of Samman Rashi to eminent Sanskrit Pandits who are indigent.

A communication received by Jose from the Deputy Rgistrar of the Rahtriya Sanskrit Sansthan under the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development, said the Samman Rashi would also continue in favour of the widow of the recipient until her death.

Jose had served for the erstwhile Sahitya Deepika Sanskrit College in the district (now Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan Guruvayur, Campus), founded by his late father, P T Kuriakose Master, for over 43 years.
