India is a veritable #TowerofBabel, with more than two dozen official languages and hundreds of dialects.

This has caused lots of tension because everyone wants to preserve their culture. There's also the feeling that there should be some link language to connect the whole.
For a long time, #English was the link language, but self-styled nationalists, especially from the ruling #BJP, felt this was a betrayal of "Indian" values.

So they kept pushing for the use of #Hindi as the #NationalLanguage.

But Hindi is not even spoken by a majority (>50%) of Indians. It is merely spoken by the most Indians.

So people of other ethnicities worry that under Hindi domination, their languages would disappear.

A three-language formula was suggested as far back as the 1960s.

"The day I got my postgraduate degree, I didn’t waste a minute– I rushed back to my village, Ausgrum in Bengal, to become a teacher.

#Inspiration #Teacher #Education #PadmaShri #SeniorCitizens #HeroesOfHumanity #WestBengal
Yes, I had higher salary offers from schools in bigger towns, but for me, the 169 Rs I was offered at my school village meant everything.

I was hungry for teaching the students from my town who needed a good teacher the most.
I taught at my school for 39 years and only retired because I’d hit my ‘retirement age’– 60; what a ridiculous concept!

Afterwards, I expected to spend years drinking sugary tea and wasting my time on the charpoy!
