Am just not able to understand what Ms Sarojha is saying. The Mumbai people are so disciplined, not because they are Hindi-speaking. They are disciplined because they that is basically in the blood of the Maharashtrians. Please do note that Marati and not Hindi, is still the major language. Hindi has nothing to do with discipline.
If that were so, what about the Hindi speaking people who occupy all the berths of reserved passengers and make life miserable for those who are rightfully eligible to travel without any trouble. Have you ever traveled even in a day train with the Hindiwallahs? Am totally surprised that you have mixed up the Hindi language with discipline. Today, Hindi is also spoken in Chennai and in many other parts of Tamil Nadu. I just spoke about the discipline in the queues in terms of getting into buses., This has nothing to do with language.
Kindly do not mix up issues and talk non-issues. In Chennai too, people are otherwise disciplined. We do not want anyone's certificate. The whole world was aghast when for one full week, some six lakh Tamil families congregated in the Marina Beach, but nothing untoward happened at all. Incidentally, the Hindi speaking people, particularly from Rajashthan, who are my friends, settled down in Chennai for over two hundred years and who can read, write and speak Tamil, even better than me, were there in the agitation.
So, Madam, language has nothing to do with discipline. Do not confuse yourself with such fancy ideas.
