IMLD observance in Jaipur marked with demand for Rajasthani as constitutionally recognised language
On the occasion of the International Mother Language Day (IMLD) on 21st February to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity, the Rajasthan Motyar Parishad organised an event titled 'Mayarh Bhasha Ro Hailo' to press the demand for recognition of Rajasthani as a constitutionally recognised language.
A signature campaign and an open forum was organised with storytelling, folk singing, poetry recitation. A discussion was also organised at Rajasthan University's Rajasthan Study Centre. A demand was made to start the Rajasthani Bhasha and Sanskriti Kendra on the University campus.

As we know that the IMLD deems mother tongues and regional languages as the 'most powerful instruments of preserving and developing our tangible and intangible heritage' and promotion of mother tongues to 'serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions'.

Umpteen studies shown that children who are taught in home language in primary classes develop better language abilities to acquire effectively other languages and even do better in different subjects due to an overall brain development as thinking individuals.

Some educational experiments in Rajasthan have shown that more children succeed in school if initially the language of instruction is their home language because of acceptance and accommodation of children in the classroom processes and continue with education.
