The Sri Jagannath Temple Administration in Puri on Thursday filed an FIR against Amazon India at Simhadwar police station for unauthorised sale of Nirmalya Mahaprasad on its shopping portal. 

Administrator AK Jena, in the FIRST INFORMATION REPORT, stated that the temple has not permitted anyone to sell the Mahaprasad online but the Nirmalya is found to be sold at an exorbitant rate on Amazon. Mahaprasad was available on Amazon for Rs 129. As per the record of rights, only the ‘temple cooks are authorised to sell the ‘Nirmalya Mahaprasad’ at the Aruna Stambha of the shrine.  

Nirmalya is the dried rice made in the temple. Unlike cooked Mahaprasad which can at best be preserved for a day, Nirmalya can be consumed for several days. When the cooked rice stock remains unutilised for the day, it is dried under the sun and made available to devotees in red cloth packets.

A Muslim student has obtained a Ph.D. in the Sanskrit language from Gujarat University. Salma Qureshi chose to study the subject of the teacher-disciple tradition of India.

The 26-year-old woman was a student of Gujarat University‘s Sanskrit department and she had obtained her doctorate under the guidance of Atul Unagar. She was also the recipient of a gold medal during her MA from Bhavnagar University. She had graduated from Saurashtra University. Her doctoral research took almost three years as she had joined the Gujarat University PhD program in the year 2017.  

She said, “I was drawn to the Sanskrit language since I was in school. I liked studying the Vedas and the Puranas. My family did not have any objection to my taking up Sanskrit for my higher studies.”

Qureshi also said since Hindu religious scriptures are in Sanskrit, it is believed that it is the language of the gods. “I believe language has nothing to do with any religion. Students should have the freedom to choose in whatever language they want to study. I believe Sanskrit should be taught compulsorily. I want to become a teacher of Sanskrit “.
