Abhay's comment on Hindi: Our National Language?
@Reality, "".....but i am not going to learn hindi at any point of time..i will not come to north for my job in future...."" Try respect the Indian constitution and do not close your mind. India is a multi-lingual country. It is not possible for a different state to bend at your language request. If you read the Article 351 carefully, it says Hindi shall be promoted to bring the whole nation as one. If that is the case dont you think it is our duty to respect the constitution and try to learn Hindi? I am also south Indian. Dont take me wrong. But here is what I believe....being a multi-lingual, multi cultural country, it is difficult to bring all of us together. Atleast as my National pride, I would be happy to learn Devanagari lipi apart from English (which is actually a foreign language). In India, everyone face this problem of discrimination when they travel to another state, but one should learn to cope-up. Now, the law is been amended giving preference to Hindi and not to Tamil or Kannada because at that time out of the whole population of India, Hindi was largely spoken. Although the words 'largely spoken' is quite debatable one must realize IT IS largely spoken in India. The irony is this...if you had only learnt Hindi, you might not have lost your job in the steel company. BEFORE YOU BLAME THE SYSTEM, BLAME YOURSELF FOR YOUR CLOSE MINDEDNESS..good luck.

actually Abhay English is more Indian than hindi is. Taml Nadu so are many states in the northeast has never been ruled by the rulers from the hindi/urudu speaking belt. We have been ruled by englsh rulers for 300 years but it is only the last 50 years we are being tried to be ruled by hind speaking people..
