Language is supposed to be one of the binding forces. Wherever you are, if you come across some one who speaks your language you side line other factors like caste, religion or status and make friends with that person. One’s attachment to one’s language is such that, no matter how insignificant or unpopular one’s language is, one would glorify it at the expense of other languages.
But, this deep attachment is visible only when a person is away from his native state or when someone from his state is playing for some national team (sports & games) or holding some top posts. Within the linguistic state, language is sidelined in favour of religion, caste or politics. Apart from this, a single language has many faces and is treated like strangers. The only binding force is the script and to some extent the literature. It is applicable even to popular languages like English. As we all know, there is English-English, American-English, Indian-English and so on..
