Putting together the two socially different cultures is always quite intriguing, Rasiya Mohammedkutty, a Keralite is doing this in a most productive way. Surprisingly, she is teaching both Sanskrit and Quran in a single classroom India. Now this is something which must be spread.
As Rasiya basically belongs to a Muslim family, knowledge of the Quran came easy to her and soon enough she developed an interest in Sanskrit. However, Sanskrit was not her first choice after she graduated in Chemistry from CMS College in Kottayam, Kerala.
She purposefully developed the interest for the language after she was approached by a group of Vishwa Sanskrit Prathishthan volunteers, who approached her with leaflets regarding Sanskrit classes in 2012.
Her strong will for teaching the diverse ethnicities is quite rare in India, what makes her stand out, even more, is that despite looking at breaking stereotypes she feels that language and knowledge have nothing to do with religion.
