Hindi Diwas Special: Recognize the Power of Mother Language Hindi

Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, wrote in the July 9, 1938 issue of ‘Harijan Patrika’ about his bitter experiences of getting education through English that ‘we and our children have to carry on our heritage only.

If we take it from others, we will make ourselves powerless. We cannot thrive on foreign manure. I want to take the treasure of foreign languages ​​through my own languages.

Hindi Diwas Special: Recognize the Power of Mother Language Hindi

The first language took birth or the first society was created. It is a question of whether the chicken comes first or the egg comes first. ‘Language’ is a multi-use tool for society.

From this point of view, society must have been formed earlier. Society must have formed language through signs towards the development of communicative competence.

In the construction of both language and society, both seem to develop a culture in the role of each other’s helper. As society is not just what it seems. Similarly, language is not just what is written and spoken.

Language is also that which shapes our thinking, behaviour, interest and mindset. It is more important to understand the language and body language than the language of writing and reading which creates the socio-cultural and economic-political elements inherent in the linguistic structure.

Therefore, the understanding of linguistic context is not limited to literal meanings but is pervasive in all the dimensions, contexts and perspectives that constitute ‘language’ or to put it simply, the linguistic psychology that constitute and work behind that social fabrication. Which makes the language powerful.

Language is not just a medium of communication, it is its simple natural obligation. With language comes power, power, class.

The politics of language is an old culmination. The power of language administration and administration has been working since time immemorial as a companion.

It has been working as a social currency. Socio-economic inequalities have been established in the formation of specific classes, which are useful for the power structure.

Mother tongue learning process and we

When we are learning our mother tongue, we are adopting a whole method of thinking and understanding. Language is providing us with a vision that establishes us in our surroundings.

Like a very natural process, it keeps happening in our life experiences.

Its strength, capacity and expansion characteristics, like the germination of the embryo, are determined at the primary stage itself, which is going to form the future world.

Language has a unique relationship with its society and culture.

Of course, man has a wonderful ability to learn the language, but he can learn a language only when he gets the environment of a linguistic society.

On the one hand, it is through society that the language is passed on from generation to generation, on the other hand, it is through the language itself that the society remains organized and operated.

In the absence of language, the social structure will collapse.

Similarly, language is closely related to its culture. Linguistic strength depends a lot on the strength of the culture.

World experience shows that only those societies have proved to be intellectually and morally successful in which linguistic richness remained.

Only those societies, whose rich languages ​​have made progress in their respective disciplines, have progressed in science and technology. The development of any culture and science depends on the base of the language itself.

The cultures of traditional societies, due to their customs, superstitions and superstitions, tend to negate new horizontals, expanding socio-cultural taboos.

Makes her education medium infertile. This tendency of constant denial of new scientific forms of the world and this obstructive attitude of orthodoxy never allow us to prosper linguistically.

As a result, such societies remain unable to understand scientific principles. Therefore, developing the only culture or enriching the only language would be a one-sided development.

To build a developed society, there is a need to develop culture and language in parallel. Similarly, language is related to education. Mother-linguistic medium of instruction not only brings ease but also its effectiveness.

This is what the famous thinker ‘Jerome Bruner’ says:

‘Children grow up adopting their society and culture, society and culture determine the nature of their learning.

To a large extent, this nature determines what the child will learn and what will be easy for him to learn. These are important things for a teacher. Therefore, language is a very important aspect concerning culture and education.

The measure of the prosperity of any community, society and culture is its language.

There is a very common belief that if you want to eliminate a caste or a culture, first eliminate its language. That caste or culture will automatically disappear.

With the disappearance of language, not only culture disappears, but literature and history also get lost in the pit of the past.

In ‘Scientific American Mind’, well-known linguist Dr Coure Bins writes-

There are seven thousand languages ​​in the world, out of which two languages ​​are dying every month.

And with them, the cultural knowledge acquired from many progenies and the mysterious word love of the human mind is also vanishing forever.

Mother tongues are not only for communication, they are guides towards the formation and development of culture.

In today’s modern global world, which is being termed as ‘information society, it has opened the front of linguistic supremacy.

In the field of media and social media, languages ​​are showing their power. All the languages ​​of the world are competing to establish new paradigms of market power and power by establishing cultural supremacy with their own firepower.

As a result, developing societies have reached the brink of an identity crisis.

On the other hand, developed societies are preserving their language and giving new horizons of expansion to their culture.

But the languages ​​and dialects of backward societies are moving towards almost extinction. Globally, large languages ​​have posed an existential crisis in front of smaller languages.

Under the pressure of globalization, 40 per cent of the world’s 6,700 spoken languages ​​are on the verge of extinction, while these languages ​​embody the culture of that society and their thousands of years of knowledge.

Language and our society

Thousands of tribal languages ​​are linked to their roots. These languages, stemming from the life experiences of centuries, are deeply rooted in the deep concerns of the environment. There is an immeasurable amount of knowledge in them.

The race for modern development has buried that immense storehouse of traditional knowledge in the race for development.

The destruction of forests in the name of development is also destroying the tribal languages ​​and cultures which were inexhaustible sources of indigenous and original knowledge.

The uniqueness of knowledge inherent in these tribal languages, its preservation and promotion have the potential to spark new creation.

The extinction of such knowledge-seeds is the end of an entire linguistic civilization and culture that could have provided many socio-cultural genes to the world.

Language is the medium of instruction, that medium can be its mother tongue or any other language. Therefore language is learned or taught regarding some purpose or purpose.

But to develop mother tongue as a medium of education means to strengthen, broaden and empower the communication process of our society and country because mother tongue is the social reality that connects the individual to the various social contexts of his linguistic society and he determines social identity.

Based on this, a person can remain connected with his society and culture.

Language is the carrier of culture and rituals in society. Language socializes the individual in its scent, provides him with a socio-cultural identity.

Along with the intellectual development of a person, his feelings and feelings are naturally expressed in their own language.

The mother tongue medium brings the knowledge of various subjects into our personality in a natural and simple and easy way.

Mother tongue contributes to the development of all four skills like speaking, comprehension, reading and writing in the student as well as enhancing the capacity of literary taste.

Everyone is also familiar with the subtleties and peculiarities of their language. This makes it easier for him to access written literature.

As a result, his creative ability and reasoning power develop. The creative talent increases the interest of his literary creation, due to which the linguistic ability to do socially useful work in the society also wants to be active in the development-oriented direction.

The power of language depends on its use. New experiments develop their firepower and play the role of motivator in becoming a strong language of any language.
