HINDI SE PREMA KAREIN ,HINDI ME BOLEIN
( LOVE HINDI , SPEAK IN HINDI )
(First things first .Many thanks to Grace B who ,despite being a foreigner ,came to encircle whole debate in a very sensible way .And my Indian counterparts simply entered in beating the bush , coming up with hilarious excuses as if they have landed straight from America .They are talking about their mother tongue as if its a foreign langauage . When I had written this article on ” Hindi Divas ” (Hindi Day ) ,I had only Indians in mind with this expectation that they will be able to read it comfortably .It has come to prove that even Indians need to talk about their mother tongue in English ? What’s the point in asking for its devanagari version ? I deliberately used a Roman script so that even those who are not capable of following Devanagari script could at least read it in Roman script ?And yes , I didn’t go in for its translation because you can never do justice with the original . And ,above all ,every writer cannot be a good translator or be comfortable in using various softwares used for change of script .
It’s really shocking that none of them bothered to comment over the content of the article .And it’s really going to make them have their heads hang in shame, (people other than Indians demanding translation ) because the whole article deals with Indians inability to give proper place to their mother-tongue !!

(In present India dealing with state of affairs in English is no less dangerous than rule of Britishers in India )
2.Jab Samvidhan Ke Viruddha Aacharan Karna Rajyadroha Hai , Tab Radshtrabhasa Ke Viruddha Aacharan Karna Kaisein Rajyadroha Na Hokar , Rashtriya Akhandata Ke Abhirakshana Ka Sawaal Hai, Agar Ki Daava Samvidhan Mein Hindi Ko Rashtrabhasa Ka Darja Diyein Ja Chukein Honein Ka Ho ? Aur Agar Humnein Keha Hai Baar-Baar Ki Hindi Ko Bhartiya Samvidhan Mein Rajbhasa Ka Darja Diyein Gayein Honein Ka Rashtriya Pakhanda Bhi Siva Ek Behaya Sapheda Jooth Ke Siva Aur Kuch Nahin , To Siva Sach Ke Aur Kya Keha Hai ?
(To dishonour Hindi is at par with anti-constitutional act . More so if we have come to declare it a national language .To dishonour Hindi is a greater offence than merely considering it an attempt to disintegrate India .We have not given Hindi its due and therefore let’s not proclaim that it has gained the status of national language .Such proclamation is blatant lie .) ****************

5. Hum Par Aarop Lagaya Jaata Hai Ki Ham Mein Pehal Karnein Ki Maadda Nahin Hai . Ho Bhi Kaisein Sakta Hai ? Yadi Hum Ek Videshi Bhasa Par Adhikaar Paanein Ke Liyein Jeevan Ke Amulya Varsha Laga Dene Padein To Aur Kya Hp Sakta Hai .

( We are always placed in the dock for not able to provide right direction to issues critical in nature . We can never do so. Because we come to spend years in learning a foreign language to gain total command over it (read English ) .
