Aatreya, kindly read what I have written carefully, do not be in a hurry to put me to blame. That Sanskrit was a code/secret language was sid by Niroshan. In my message that you have qwuoted, I am saying exactly what you have said, that Sanskrit was not a code/secret language. (You too should have quoted Niroshn's post and not mine, as I did. You make it seem like I made such a statement).
What i Really meant was Vedic -Sanskrit during Buddha's time[ 2500 years ago ]was said to be a "Sacred language" confined only to Priesthood /Elites and used during the Vedic Rituals only . It was preserved and shared only among the Brahmins not with others in the society and it was not committed to writing at that time ! It could be a wrong information--But I have no idea what so ever! However Sorry for any semantic misunderstanding of my parlance!
