The benefits of learning a new language are limitless. It not just helps you to communicate better but also provides a competitive edge over others. Lithuanian ambassador to India, Diana Mickeviciene has learnt Hindi and Sanskrit and recently gave an interview to the news agency ANI in Hindi.
She shared, “It is a bit difficult for me to talk about serious matters. But, I am able to speak. I learnt Sanskrit for two years. But, that is a language of scriptures in our University. I learnt to read, write and translate, but not to speak.”
