Watch non-multilingual Indians lash out at each other here and refer the story above too ...
the first comment (from some Debashish Roy) seems to me is a Bengali who is in USA lashing out at Tamilians who don't know Hindi.. Ha ha .. talk about the diversity here :D
Grow up folks ... If we really have a national language, it must be gibberish !!!! Best option is as thus - let each Indian have her/his own national language :D -
The National Language Algorithm v1.0
// Hindi Speaking Area includes the "cowbelt" and Mumbai which is the capital of UP
enum Lang GetNationalLanguage(Indian desi)
if( desi.mother_tongue != Lang.Hindi)
if(desi.AreaOfStay == GetAreaByLanguage(Lang.Hindi) )
if(desi.wellKnownLanguage == English && desi.dontLikeHindi)
LearnLanguageToSurvive(desi, Lang.Hindi); // study only little Hindi to survive
else // if you stay in a non-Hindi State or out of Mumbai (capital of UP)
if(desi.wellKnownLanguage != Lang.English)
LearnLanguageToSurvive(desi, Lang.English); // study only little English to survive
// Now you must know English
return Lang.English; // English becomes National Language if u dunno Hindi
Problem Solved .. If you stay up North learn Hindi. If you do not stay in Hindi areas - you should at least know English ...
Don't be freaking Language imperialist in your own nation... our heritage is too precious and too ancient to be involved in a linguistic majority-minority debates and brawl ..... ... Let's just be Good Indians .. Good desis ...
