Embassy of India, Kuwait, organized the celebration of Foundation Day of ICCR and launch of a Sanskrit Learning app – ‘Little Guru’ in Kuwait on April 11, 2021.

Congratulations for All
For having the Little Guru app, which is a Sanskrit learning platform.
Sanskrit, one of the oldest languages of the world and it Maha Guru ( Great Teacher ) or mother of all Indian languages.
A beautiful and sweet language that everyone should learn.
Languages are the doors to new worlds.
