Hindi should never be imposed on any StateThere is already a big talk that the new Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, the dynamic, M. K. Stalin, will not allow Hindi to be imposed in Tamil Nadu.
As a State of India, we, the people of Tamil Nadu have every right to accept or reject a language. We adore our mother tongue, Tamil, as it is a far richer and more ancient language than Hindi. We are not against Hindi but against its imposition. The Prime Minister himself tends to think that Hindi is the sole Indian language. At least he knows some English. But his deputy has never ever spoken English. His imperious looks and his figure always suggest that he is ready to impose Hindi on Tamil Nadu, left right and centre.
Hindi should not be imposed in Tamil Nadu or any other State. It is just another language. It is not the sole national language. Even Tamil is a national language. Hindi is an official language alongside English. We will continue to use only English, repeat English, in all correspondence with other States.
We fully understand the need for Hindi, but it only is an additional link language. If we get posted to North India or live in North India, we will speak in Hindi.
