Deepesh Kumar's comment on Hindi: Our National Language?
I too am depressed hearing this. Well I have been experiencing this for 2 month now from 2 means - first one: I have been noticing people who I have met in holland since I have been here and people with whome I have to share my company apartment. People who are Indians, but do not know (don't even understand) hindi !. I was shoked to see the fact that people just try to hide the fact that they are from India. Come on!! you do not need to speak in a foreign language to your countrymate? do you? I don't think so! Every other country is proud of their language. But what we Indians do.. is try to learn their language in place of speaking ours! shameful!

Ok Deepesh then why dont you learn the language of your other Indians? And what makes ou think that Hindi is completely and Indian language? THe hindi as you speak it today was created largely by the mughals who were not even Indians in the first place... The term 'Hindi' itself is not an indian idea...the muslim invaders called us so...when they came to rule the delhi area they took the local dialect 'khariboli' and mixed it with persian and arabic and created two languages 'hindi' and 'urdu' ... and borrowed script...So it was essentially created by foreigners and their influence...so what is the big difference between considering it the national language and considering english as the national language?

things are not that bad everywhere.In US there was some street play organized by some Indian Organization, that was in hindi. All performers, mostly young, were not form Hindi belt. May be the folkss who are abusing Hindi here should meet the team and give them lecture why they should not play Hindi street show. There is no denying that there exist deep hatred towards Hindi and that is understandable. Dont we hate people from other casts, other states, other religion :).We give several reasons to justify our position. But there are good things also. Nothing is perfect in this world.
