Why such sudden glorification of regional languages? Simple answer- Hindi imposition and disdain accept political failure. Why?
Hindi is not the only regional language that exists. But, certainly the most well known. Hence, Hindi shall be the most preferred once, assuming the....
most default familiarity for any language other than English is Hindi , for a teacher and a student.
Mother tongue isn't Hindi by default. Perhaps, imposing once mother tongue whether socially familiar or not is morally incorrect and unfair , for diverse democracy.
Thirdly, there have been more efforts to promote the language sanskrit particularly than any other language (English is exception here). Thus, balancing between understanding of language skills and conceptual knowledge would be difficult. Perhaps, this risk is ferocious.
Fourth point, sanskrit should be promoted by the logic of preserving ancient languages, then Pali , Prakrit too should be promoted.
Historically, sanskrit is prominent among the Brahmins and the latter was prominent with the lower classes.
Ignoring the relevance and adaptability
Of the other languages and highlighting sanskrit being totally aware of it's history , is rather ignorance, and is of casteist nature too.
In fact, pali Prakrit and etc; have less archaeological remains as compared to sanskrit. Hence, restoring sanskrit isn't an immediate need.
It's clear therefore, that this is nothing but a plan of imposing Hindi and self - propagated hindutva culture upon the present and next generation.
Most importantly, language should be a choice, and no social constructs should be created for it.
Creating such, is deny liberty!!
Language isn't a measure of intelligence, but the idea of Intellectualism can't exist without the ability of being united amidst diversity. This is a legal violation of the constitution's guarantee of federalism.
India is walking backwards towards the age of barbarism.
