The workshop sparked a deep interest and appreciation for Sahitya among the attendees.

Continuing the series, an educational workshop on Navya Nyaya and Navya Vyakaran took place from June 13th to June 24th, 2023. Dr. Shree Vishvanath Dhital, Assistant Professor at the Department of Humanistic Studies, IIT (BHU), and a respected Nyaya scholar, conducted sessions on significant Nyaya texts, including Nyaybodhini, Panchalakshani, and Samanyanirukti. Accompanying him was Acharya Shree Govinda Pande, an esteemed scholar of Navya Vyakaran. Acharya Pande shared his expertise on topics like Sandhi and Samas from Vaiyakaran Siddhant Kaumudi, and also offered insights into Mahabhashya and Laghushabdendushekhara.
