    Sanskrit is really a beautiful language. Many great epics like Mahabharat (the longest known epic poem) and Ramayan are written in this language. Vedas are also in this language.Sanskrit language has a rich literature written in it,having gems like Kumarsambhav ,Raghuvamsha, Meghadoota,Ritusamhar, ,AbhijnanaShakuntalam by Kalidas .
    And as this is a music forum so I would like to mention here that there are many stotras (devotional hymns to Gods) and kirthis (sabhaa gaanam compositions in Carnatic Music of South India ) in Sanskrit language which are really melodious .
