NEW DELHI, INDIA, June 12, 2001: An unique gurukulam (priest school), Shri Hanuman Sanskrit Mahavidalaya, has been in operation in West Delhi since 1978. Attracting students from poor families who cannot afford food or education for their offspring, the institute is run by a branch of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. While teaching common subjects such as history and English as well as astrology and Sanskrit grammar, the school cannot afford to offer any sciences in its curriculum. Upon graduating with Class 12 from the school, students can continue their post secondary studies in a shastri course. With an excellent grasp of English and history, graduates can become lecturers, work in historical museums, become astrologers or work as priests in temples run by the government.
