Ayush Hindi Ministry - Trilingual policy wedge:
“I am a World citizen, every citizen is my own Kith and Kin”, but how can we evacuate from our motherland to another place. If your domain is intensely shaken by my mother language, it means that Domain is established in my place.
Is Hindi an obligatory language in India? How can someone tell us to leave a meeting if we don’t understand Hindi?
Can anyone perceive us that, if we don’t vocalise Hindi we aren’t an Indian?
Is there a more comprehensive language than our Tamil? Let’s check that out!!
Beloved Tamil people. Greetings from Tamil Pokkisham.
Searching for a more efficient language than Tamil will ruin all our time because all the shreds of evidence confirm that Tamil is one of the oldest languages whose origin goes thousands of years back in time.
But I don’t want to consume this video by talking about Tamil since we all know its special features and characteristics. The vital thing we need to discuss in this video is about Hindi. We can survive in India by learning Hindi, which is the most relevant thing we all know. Jobs in Central government are guaranteed if you know Hindi. Learning English as a primary language will help you in seizing jobs all over the world. If you want a relation you can learn Tamil. This is the most common and ultimate thing we need to know.
We can deliver the Exam notification for Central government if we know Hindi. We can also deliver that in English, right?
Now many might question, whether Hindi and English are the official languages of India? Yes, will be an honest answer for sure.
Though Hindi and English are the official languages of India, they are not the National Languages of our country. Then what is the National Language of India? The straightforward answer will be NO!! There are no National Languages for India, but there are 22 approved languages for our nation in which we can say Tamil is the best of the lot. However many would go against this like the people who support Hindi. That’s because when we found many old sculptures and carvings in Keezhadi, our workers and officials were directly transferred to other places for exploring. This was because of the people who carry Hindi as the primary language. So there are a lot of queries and concerns about this issue.
But when was the time in India Hindi became a striking point to be noticed. Around the 1950s, Hindi and Urdu were the most spoken languages.
The capital of India, Delhi was in control of an Islamic leader. After India got freedom many advised the government to announce Urdu as the National Language because most of the people were speaking Urdu at that time. During that time, many Hindi speakers raised their voices against this by saying Urdu is an Islamic Language and Hindi needs to be recognized because India is the place where Hinduism is followed more. Soon, Urdu was rated as the National language of Pakistan. When Hindi was on the verge of being announced as the National Language of India, another problem arose i.e Many people from the Southern part didn’t want Hindi to be announced as the National Language.
After all these disputes, the Government declared that India will not have a National Language but would consider Hindi as the official language. They also proclaimed that every state will have the right to choose their official language. So, Tamil Nadu has their official language as Tamil and for further examples, Kerala has their official language as the Malayalam. There were no more debates about this topic as every state seemed to be fine. Though Hindi was renowned as the Official language, according to Article 343 the government must subside English as the supportive official language for the Nation.
So when there is a notification from the Central government, it would be in the form of both Hindi and English. Then what about the other 22 approved languages? If we all came across this once, we can certainly know about the significance and importance that is given to Tamil by our government. The constitutional provisions relating the 8th Schedule was issued by our government in 1950 where there were only 14 approved languages which read:
Later in 1967, the Sindhi language was attached in that list. In 1992, Konkani, Manipuri, Nepali were included. Finally, in 2004, Bodo, Dagri, Maithili and Santhali got their respective places in that list. The government also announced that there are a lot of different languages and people following different cultures, so people should not overtake a language to suppress another language. Then why do people overwhelm Hindi upon other languages? Many say if we learn Hindi we can gain job opportunities in various states. But that is not the actual case, because even people from the Northern sector of India come here to get jobs.
So when people from Tamil Nadu receive great jobs by learning Tamil then why do we need to learn Hindi?
If a person is in the necessity for learning Hindi, He/She can learn it. But making it as a Mandatory Language for all doesn’t make any sense.
Many might ask, When did our Government declare Hindi as an Obligatory Language?
For that, we need to discuss the National Education Policy. In that government introduced the 3 Language formula or policy in which the person will have to learn his Mother language, English and any other Indian Language.
In the 3rd category, many demanded Hindi or Sanskrit be included as an optional. But this is where the problem arose because every person will have a desire to learn a Language.
For example, There is Chinese dominance all over the world. So in sequence to learn their history we need to learn their language. Yet, our schools would not allow that because there will be a teacher already appointed to teach the 3rd Language. It would most probably be Hindi. This makes Hindi a mandatory language to be learnt. Another question that will arise here is what would the students who learn Hindi as the fundamental language or the students who have mother language as Hindi learn as the 3rd language?
Will they learn Tamil?
This must be the question every northern state should raise. Tamil is one of the most efficient Languages and can wholly be said as the Mother of all Languages. So, when other languages come here to dominate Tamil, it wouldn’t last long!
Now, what happened in Ayush Ministry. They have commenced a video conference in which members from various states like Tamil Nadu, Kerala who was a part of this ministry can join the meeting.
Ayush is nothing but the ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Sidha and Homeopathy. In the past 10 years, nearly 3000 crores were allocated for Ayurveda research and 437 crores were allocated for the remaining things. At this time many reported that the meeting was carried in which they were talking only about the Ayurveda and not Sidha. In this case, we can consider Tamil is being depleted by them because Sidha is one the tradition and it belongs to Tamil. There are also high chances of its occurrence because our central government are giving importance to Ayurveda, Yoga and not to our Sidha.
Another reason is, Ayurveda is originated from the Veda period and Sidha is dawned even before that when human began to find medicines for him. So what those people from Northern side need is the Ayurveda. We shouldn’t just consider this as a language issue but also they are trying to hide our Sidha tradition which came before thousands of years. They didn’t stop this issue here, During the Ayush ministry conference, they invited nearly 350 to 360 members from various states. But it is said that nearly 430 attended the meeting.
When the meeting was in the course, At the initial time everyone was giving their speech in the combination of English and Hindi. But later everyone started to give their speech only in Hindi. When some Tamil people who don’t understand Hindi addressed this issue in the conference, they replied by saying we are comfortable in speaking Hindi than in English, if you don’t understand you leave the conference.
This became viral all over the internet and many started to give their voices against this issue. Later those people replied that they were urging those additional members who joined this conference to leave the meeting. But this was not accepted by the people. The only thing that was demanded by Tamil people in the conference is to convey the message in English as don’t understand Hindi.
Is that a big crime?
Politics are getting engaged in this issue which is not a big deal. But what we are trying to say is, English is the international language so there is nothing wrong in conversing in it. We can get jobs anywhere around the world if we understand or vocalise in English. If we want to know about our tradition and culture we can learn our mother language a tad more. So from this, we have seen how Hindi has become an obligatory language in our society. Firstly, by the National Education Policy in which the 3rd language would most probably be Hindi.
Secondly, In the upcoming conferences, there might be Hindi spoken in all of them. Even our Central government is planning to indulge Hindi as the official language in the UNO [ United Nations Organisation].
But if we research the Indian culture like the Language and most effective and common language spoken by the inhabitants, it would be Tamil. The official language in UNO must be Tamil and not Hindi. Many might think it is crazy because Hindi would normally be said as the official language. But when you study deeper about our culture and languages you can find Tamil as the dominant language.
In 2019, the Gujarat high court filed a case in Supreme court. It says, all the product’s manufacturing and expiry date must be printed in Hindi since it is the most spoken language. But Supreme court objects the case because there are a lot of people in our nation who don’t understand Hindi and also Hindi is not the National Language of India. While looking at the number of Hindi speakers, less than 25% of our population have Hindi as their mother language. 40% of our population have stated that they can converse Hindi but it is not their mother language
Now many might ask another question i.e Hindi is the widespread language of our nation then why it is not announced as the National Language?
We have an answer for that it is, Crow is widespread and the most common bird in our country, but peacock is the National bird of our country. It is because Peacock has some really special and attractive characteristics with it, on the other hand, Crow doesn’t have special features in it. In the same way, Hindi is the widespread and common language of our country, but it doesn’t have any special features in it. On the other hand, Tamil has some extraordinary characteristics and features in it.
In the 19th century, A data was revealed in which it says, Hindi is younger than all other languages and is also made from the combination of other languages.So from this, we can summarise that Hindi is not worthy to be the National and a Mandatory language. If someone goes against this we can say again that your Domain is intensely shaken by my mother language because it is being established in my place.
