Should English be Indias national language?


Should English be Indias national language?India is a diverse nation with its banks flooded with culture, traditions, food types, literature, and art. It’s the only country where SMS is available in more than 10 languages. The 21 official languages don’t count the numerous ones of each state making India a hub of “communication”. To everyone’s notice, this diversity has taken tremendous attacks by “foreign blood” containing a virus ignored, but slowly penetrating in our lives. We all fell ill for 200yrs, 65 yrs back.  Our own language antibodies were host species for the virus and slowly they gave up. We were their employers and toiled hard. After freedom, we adapted every possible thing from them since we were amateur to create our own.eg: the constitution and judiciary. Later, we pursued English as our official language to stay high on markets giving the local one the 2nd place.

Trends changed. Now people with zero English base toil hard to “learn” English the “world’s way” because it’s the fuel for their gas stoves. Those who have no idea of it, feel discarded from the society. Time is showing up again when we were “their” employers. We spent nights and days working, just to fulfil their pockets. The MNC’s surely are making Indians their slaves. Like the older days, this is creating tensions in society, among relations and the social network is mostly through touch screens. We copy their lifestyle, but when it comes to life…We don’t want to live he same. T he society is more divided than united.

How many of us know of Hindi, kannada or Tamil writers or of the ancient regional festivals, but we know of Shakespeare and Halloween.  The government’s vaccine is slow over this virus. Local theatre show’s run empty. Even the movies tend to mix the English touch, but that rather disappoints viewers. We never accept that rockets were first used by Tipu Sultan of Mysore against the British and later they copied it. We neglect our own knowledge, however most of the world inventions had already occurred or their ideas originated back during VEDAS. If this is the scenario when it’s not the national language, what will happen if it turns out to be one??

    A little info on the language matter: When India pushed it’s demand of getting Hindi recognised as an international language, the first opposition it suffered was from one of it’s own states(you guessed it right a southern one!)

    Another point: Mind you, the GoI spend crores just to have all the legal works translated in Hindi, there’s separate departments for these….. I don’t remember the exact figures but it was around Re. 38 croresper year!!! :)

  2. ABHAY MAHESHWARI says:

    that was a really good piece of info, frankly..i didnt knew that..moreover after reading ur comment i believe its the society that’s making things worse.. but tell me one thing “ek sarkari office mein,angrezi bolne waale ki baat pehle suni jaati hai kyunki woh “bada” aadmi hota hai…” if govt. spends so much, y are the officials still living a british era mentality??

    1. Sajal says:

      As per your “sarkari office” point, depends on the level of people you’re dealing with: a clerk would respond in a better way if you convince him in English, whereas the same might/ might not be true for say, a manager……..

  7. ABHAY MAHESHWARI says:

    thats the case, we indians feel ashamed of our wealth, and advantage automaticaly goes 2 the english..they dont hav ne problem roaming around the world. english is served as platter for all meals for them..the reason being, they never gave up themselves for others,rather they took whatever possible..

    i would also like to know the reason..why not english.,,i know m sounding a bit “ajeeb” but we must hav strong reasons to support or neglect any intel..right??

  11. but now a days we see people speaking english more frequently then hindi or other language

  12. anwesha says:

    Man! So many nos!!!! Let me ask you a question though… Would you prefer to read Indian Fusion in English or Hindi???

  13. ABHAY MAHESHWARI says:

    there you go…great question..and i frankly say, its better in english..

  14. Sandeep Saroha says:

    so what…u can’t change ur national languages acc. to trends of a few urban youth…

  15. Aditya Kamath says:

    I was just stalking your blog when I came across this piece of work. Really liked the way you expressed yourself. You did bring out your point clearly.

    As for my views, English SHOULD be chosen as the National language. Oh, not only that, this thing should be done worldwide. One might be knowing of the global village theory..one needs a portal to communicate. English just fills the gap. As I was looking up on the comments, I came upon this clear, strong point put up by ‘anwesha’, ‘Would you prefer to read Indian Fusion in English or Hindi???’. Precisely.

    And as for the first comment, ‘(you guessed it right a southern one!)’, dang, you’d better not call yourself an Indian with that kind of discrimination and prejudice.

  16. very true, as such we do not give any importance to Hindi language

    Den hw cn we change dis trend buddy……cuz i can surely say tht u can converse / write proper english but nt proper hindi……..cuz english ws given a preference in skl…

  20. pankhuri pathak says:

    English is our main official language followed by other languages that have been recognized by the constitution but terming any one language as ‘national’ would be inappropriate as ours is a country of great diversity.. it is the same reason why we don’t have a state religion.. because we respect everyone equally.. that is what makes us unique and keeps us united..

    1. mahendra jat says:

      yes,we know that English is international language but on the score of this point we can’t change our mother language. don’t you know that in India most of people live in village they unable to speak English, now a question arises here that what has Indian (who unable to speak English)got to do with English.

  25. Mansi Gupta says:

    no ways…

    no ways…

  27. mahendra jat says:

    No it is not possible that we should change our mother language. in india hindi is not only spoken in rural area but also it is spoken in parliament. some days befor i saw meeting of locksabha was broadcasting on television. there are lot of politicians they were speaking hindi that’s why i think there is no need to change our mother language.
