Issues in India, Politics in India

Importance of important languages

Many of the popular politicians in India consider certain widely used languages as stumbling blocks to their “Progress” and are bent upon making such languages powerless and unpopular.

These politicians have their own way of getting things done according to their whims and fancies by creating an impression that they are doing so for the sake of the so called poor and downtrodden.

No doubt, politicians are the backbones of all democratic countries but government officers – central and state – and judiciaries are equally important and any attempt to sideline them should be resisted.

In view of the above facts and taking into account India’s position at the world level the importance of the international language and our own major languages cannot be ignored or discouraged.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
