Yes but not completely. There are still small villages that speak Sanskrit and it is helpful if you are a follower of a religion (Like Buddhism) and want to read the original writings.

I'm Buddhist. The school is a Buddhist boarding school.

Sanskrit is used for the Heart Sutra and other Mantras. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD I sound like a Buddhist monk.
