Any language is to learn for communicationWe are all thinking this language is superior and others are inferior. But every language is important to one and in no way he should insult other language. However mothertongue language should never be ignored.
Once a couple from America came to Kanchipuram Shankar mutt for darshan of Holishri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi swamigal (shankar mutt seer -1894-1994).Both of them Tamilians but settled in US long back. When talking with them Swamigal asked them in which language they speak thselves inthehouse there. They with proud told 'english' and their tone denotes their inferiority feeling on Tamil. Swamigal told about the importanceof mother tongue and shouldnever ignore. They with carelessness replied as their English is the only easiest language than any. Inthe gap of time an aged lady came for dharshan and swamiji spoke some with her by offering prasada. Later He told the couple back that the lady was of highly rich once and now lives in poor status but she maintain herself the same 'bakthi'. Then He asked the couple what is the single word inEnglish for her unchanged status. Both of them thinked very seriously andcould not get the answer. Swamiji gave more time but they could not. Finally Swamiji Himself told as 'equipoise'. Both of them got ashamed.
