Sanskrit names becoming popular in tech world.. Sometimes back, Airbus Group’s electric autonomous flying vehicle platform was named as “Vahana” (vehicle/carrier in Sanskrit); now the Volkswagen Group has named its new mobility services company as MOIA, which is said to be derived from Sanskrit word “maya”.
MOIA, launched on December five and headquartered in Berlin, Germany; claims to connect the car with the new mobility world, provide tailor-made transport solutions worldwide and become leading mobility services provider by 2025.
Hindus have welcomed Volkswagen Group and Airbus Group for deriving names of their new projects from Sanskrit.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, welcomed the usage of Sanskrit terminology to name such innovative projects. He urged other world corporations to explore the richness of thought offered by Sanskrit texts of Hinduism and incorporate it with future innovations.
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, further said that that Sanskrit, which was known as “the language of the gods”, provided the theoretical foundation of ancient sciences. According to tradition, self-born God created Sanskrit, which was everlasting and divine, Zed added.
