Sanskrit translations in Nazi hands

There was never a process of
cleaning in the Indology in after Nazis times and therefore it is one
reason for the unscholarity methode which is still dominating the
after-Nazi German Indology.
Hope some scholars take up the task of the study of how
Sanskrit played in the Nazi hands. Was surprised to find
that the grand historian of religion, Mircea Eliade had some
German universities can institute some Dravidian studies
endowments, Professorships to give the necessary correction
to understand the complex interplay of Dravidian and
Aryan cultures over the last 4 millennia. Overstudy
of Sanskrit does not help.
As an indirect result of the West's interest (they have their
own reasons to study it), misrepresentations
of Sanskrit abound in India. Other literatures, cultures,
their study are languishing and are in dire need of support.
