There is a lot of turbulence in the country on giving importance to regional languages. You call your friend in West Bengal and the line busy message is communicated to you in Bengali language in addition to Hindi and English, same with almost all states … even Chhattisgarh has adopted this strategy by using Chhattisgariah language as a State language …
The thoughts on the importance of language germinated and I was thinking of the language where the maximum of literature is available in the world! Yes definitely it is English. English is definitely very important for communication across borders today. It is the only widely accepted and spoken common language by most of the world.
However this does not mean that we should not follow our own mother tongue. For me both are equally important and necessary. Frankly speaking, it is highly essential to communicate & to do so you need to know the language for communication.
In this binary world & internet age, English has gained a larger acceptance. Talk of the various social networking sites facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, orkut .. all communicate majorly in English… When we talk of the education system the best books on engineering, law and medical are available in English language.
English is the only language which bridges diversity across cultures. Good Morning is essentially more understandable in the world compared to Namaste.
My suggestion to friends is to learn as many languages as possible, but never compromise with English. I have observed that for fresher students just out of the colleges the job prospects are more for all such students who are better in their understanding and knowledge of English..
