Shri Chaurasia, Maharashtra is also another State where Hindi is widely spoken, at least in the big cities. Even Gujarat is almost the same. Yet, why is that most educated persons speak far better English. It is ridiculous to claim that Russia and China have their own language. Please be informed, China has taken to English in such a big way. By the end of ten years from now, it is reported that China will have ten times the number of people who can speak, read, and write in English.
For your kind information. even in INSEAD, which is the third-best B school in the world, and is in Paris, the language used is not French, but English. And I do hope you know that in all of Europe, only English is the medium in courses like Engineering, Medicine, Management and what have you. In our own Tamil Nadu, we do give maximum importance to Tamil and to English as well. It is only because of the English-speaking engineers that our State is the third-largest IT exporter of India. How long do you want your people to suffer? How long do you want to exploit them?
It was reported that the useless former Chief Minister, Mulayam Singh Yadav wanted only Hindi in the State and wanted to banish English. It was also reported that people revolted against him. Do you know that the IAS officers from your own State, have done so good work here in Tamil Nadu? They had taken their examinations only in English. And do you know that they speak Tamil so fluently, as they know that Hindi will not take them so far? Do you want to imply that if your people do not even know how to speak in English, they can enter into the private sector? Does UP have any IT company at all? Why are people so blind to the fact that the entire world is taking to a global language, that has already brought about a big revolution in India in terms of the development of an educated class, and has also exported so many hundreds of thousands to all parts of the world?
Sir, hope you would be knowing that there is a competitive examination called IELTS. If you do not pass this examination, you cannot study abroad. From the same UP, there are smart parents who have educated their children in good English medium schools. Do you know that there is a big chunk from UP in a prestigious deemed University, called VIT, in Tamil Nadu? Ditto for SRM as usual. And yes, they also migrate abroad.
We are never against Hindi. But trying to imply that it is the only solution for development, is ridiculous. You now have one of the worst Chief Ministers and we have seen pictures of dogs in the neds in Government hospitals. Please do highlight all these facts and at least try to do something. If you start hating English, as most in your SDtate do, nothing can happen. I do not even know if your people in your highly under-developed State, will even accept that English as important than your mother tongue, which is Hindi.
At now, people like your goodself should wake up and start a movement. Otherwise, you will be left behind by 50 years.
