The importance of Language

Just as without trade an economy dies, so without an exchange of information, knowledge, thoughts, and so on; the society dies

The importance of Language

Like currency, language is also only a medium of exchange, medium to interact with other human beings. Medium to exchange information, thoughts, knowledge, memories, dreams, plans.

Language is NOT knowledge. Only a means to exchange knowledge.

It is a testimony to the mediocrity, dishonesty, and thuggery of our leaders and the ruling elite that English has become a substitute for knowledge in our country.

Just as for the last 1000 years our elite was keeping us in bondage by depriving us of all rights, in the same way, English has been used to keep us in bondage.

The collaborators and quislings and the cronies who got power in 1947 had only English, and so they created a system that English became the qualification for success, not knowledge.

And then carefully turned the debate into Hindi versus other Indian languages, instead of English versus Indian languages.

Just as barter trade is inefficient and can not grow beyond a very small scale as compared with the trade with a medium of exchange, so it has become with us.

Our own languages have been rendered the illegal tender, like say rupee in Europe, and unlike currencies, languages cannot be converted across the counter.

And just as without trade an economy dies, so without an exchange of information, knowledge, thoughts, and so on; the society dies. And so we have become: dumb and mediocre, a mass of 135 crore mutes.

Just as for the last 1000 years our elite was keeping us in bondage by depriving us of all rights, in the same way, English has been used to keep us in bondage.

A man without words is like an animal, and animals can be domesticated.
