Hindi is not our National Language. OK. You have read it on the blog earlier. But, how many people around you know this fact? Just practically check it out. Ask people around you and you’ll know.
This is an initiative to spread this lesser known fact.
We had done this blogpost in October of 2007 called “You think you know what India’s National Language is?”, and it is till date one of the most commented posts on our blog.
It’s an eye-opener which talks about the citizens of India being under an hypnotization by the system, which has very widely embedded in the minds of all of us that our National Language is Hindi. Our blog post has got around 4,500 odd views, which is not even 0.01% of India’s Internet population. People have the right to not stay under this hypnotism. The people of India need to know that India doesn’t have a National Language instead of blabbering around that Hindi is the National Language.
This post is an attempt to raise awareness about this fact.
What we need to do is very simple. If you are sitting here and reading this post, you are definitely present on atleast one of these channels on the Internet:
- Social Networks(Orkut, Facebook, etc)
- You own a website
- You have a blog
- Lots more…
What you need to do is leverage each of these mediums you are on to let people in your circle know this fact.
- If you are on email, send this to all Indians in your contacts list
- If you have a website or a blog, publish this.
- If you are on Social Networks(most of us are), use the different mediums(scrapbooks, walls, communities, groups, etc) to spread the word
- If you are on microblogs like twitter, post it there. Retweet it.
- If you are someone from the media, communicate this fact through your medium(TV, Print, Radio, etc)
- Make it a part of your dinner-table talks, party discussions, gossips.
Most importantly, when you communicate this, insist your friends/readers to pass on the message to their circle/network
- Motive: JUST SPREAD THE WORD
I hope this initiative takes some concrete form and we can see lesser people living with the misconception.
