How much proficient we are in our mother tongue?We learn our mother tongue by hearing our elders when they speak among themselves. Slowly we will pick up those words and we start speaking in that language. Once we complete our tenth class or intermediate we will stop studying the languages. So our knowledge in our mother tongue is limited only. We all can read, write and speak our mother tongue.
There are many epics written in various languages. These epics are available in all Indian languages as poetry and prose also. How many of us can read and understand those books? Are we proficient in our mother tongue to read and understand our epics? These days many of us will never have time to read these books. Even though we read we may not be able to understand them. Do you agree?
