Sanskrit
This is a self inflicted wound. I should not generalize but some of our parents shunned local languages ( I had Hindi as second language to the exclusion of Telugu which i can speak but can barely read. I think the nehruvian experiment (creating a composite Indian at the cost of native culture) was a major disaster. A compulsory 3 language formula would be far better (with Hindi or Sanskrit as one of the compulsory options) and the native language as the other. There are synergies between native languages (e.g. Telugu) and Sanskrit. I would have preferred Sanskrit as one of the languages as a window to my past.

Conversational sanskrit is a feasible language for communication and should be added as one of the link languages (in addition to Hindi, English). I agree with vish. Hebrew was a dead language at the turn of the 20th century . By sheer willpower, the founders of israel made it compulsory and made it the national language, but nobody is claiming we have the same amount of requisite common sense as the Israelis do. Nor do we have the unity.


It is too late to turn the clock back on English. It is not learning English whiich i am against but the manner in which it became the mandatory link language for business and technology.

Coupled with teaching of sanskrit, there should be departments of linguistics to study the manner in which Indian languages evolved (instead of relying on myth) and determine the connection between the various languages. However all this is moot since the Congress has swung back to power. They have no interest in such matters. There will possibly be an increase in italian speakers in india.

I hope all of us will redouble our writing output now that the bad guys are in power. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. There will be retrograde steps to bring back the leftists into all the national bodies such as ICHR, and NCERT.
