Language connects people from all over the world. Language is used to express emotions, bond with others, teach and learn, express ideas, lay the groundwork for science and technology, and so on. Indians and people all over the world speak a variety of languages. Every language has a distinct identity in that region that binds the people together.
Everyone benefits from knowing and speaking their mother tongue. We must respect all languages, but not at our own expense. We have been victims of a colonial mindset that was designed to make us forget our roots. We have already abandoned our tremendous and most scientific language, Sanskrit, and we are gradually abandoning our mother tongue, the local and national language. This action has had a significant spiritual, social, and economic impact on our lives.discovering that chanting the shlokas daily sharpens memory, improves intellect, and develops mindset.
It has been scientifically proven that the mother tongue aids in understanding and grasping any new concept in the early years of a child’s life. This fact is addressed in the new education policy to developing a student with concepts and logic, and most importantly, to build confidence, which many in today’s generation have lost because of the forced and fabricated glorification of foreign languages.
The survival and continuity of any nation are determined by how strongly the people are linked to their roots, one of which is their own language. Unfortunately, we have developed such a mindset over the years, ignoring our languages. As a result, a gradual drift away from our roots. It is now time to strongly support it and make it a reality by immediately implementing a new education policy.
Local language also aids a country’s cultural and economic development. When we look at the top 20 nations in terms of GDP, we can see that many of them prioritize their native language. This approach will undoubtedly assist us in achieving more economically and culturally while using English as a global communication language.
The feelings can be expressed correctly in the mother tongue, local language, or national language, which binds family, friends, relatives, and society. Language has such an impact on bonding that people came out in the open to help each other during the Corona pandemic.
Throughout the year, various festivals are celebrated in every nook and corner, bringing joy to many and driving the economy; one of the primary reasons is the mother tongue.
Let us remember Swami Tulasidas, Valmiki Rishi, Shri Bharatendu Harishchandra, Shri P. L. Deshpande, Sane Guruji, Shri Subramania Bharati, Shri Basavraj, and many other great contributors to our languages and culture.
Let us unite to focus on our own languages without fighting over who has the best language, respect all languages, and focus on our mother tongue and national language to grow our future generations and keep our roots intact.
Every parent, school, and government should prioritize implementing new education policies over politics.
Happy and Introspective International Mother Tongue Day to Everyone…
