Dr. Sudha Rani Pandey: History has often relegated women’s contribution to the significantly creative works of mankind, to the dustbin of amnesia. It is well known for example, that Khanaa, the daughter in law of Varah Mihir the great Sanskrit scholar, was often the main provider of his ideas. An enquiry into the role of Vidushi Vidyottama, the woman behind the writings of the famous Sanskrit poet Kalidasa, has now been envisioned, developed and researched with the blessings of the visionary Sri Sri Mouni Baba, under the aegis of Ram Nam Sewaa Ashram Nyaas, Ujjain.

In pursuance of the same vision, The Vidushi Vidyottama Stree Shakti Samman is an effort to recognize current research work in Sanskrit by acknowledging the contribution of a contemporary Woman Scholar of Sanskrit.
