International Mother Language DayEvery year February 21st is being celebrated as International Mother Language Day. Today is the IMLD of 2019. I wish all the members of ISC on this day will contribute and serve their mother tongue today. Learning other Languages and speaking other languages is always advisable. But one should not forget their mother tongue and motherland.
On International Mother Language Day the UNESCO will organise and take part in the events which will promote linguistic and cultural diversity. It is to encourage people to maintain knowledge of their mother language while learning and using more than one language.
But in many places, people are forgetting the importance of the mother tongue and they are making their children not to use the mother tongue. But I feel parents should always encourage the children to learn and speak the mother tongue.
