Recently Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh said that if he comes back to chair he would ban use of English and computers as he favoured the development of Indian languages such as Urdu Tamil Telugu Kannada Oriya and Marathi. He was against the use of English in public life and in government jobs. On use of computers he said 100 per cent computerisation would render many jobless as had happened in the U.S. and Japan. Singh said 60-65 per cent unemployment in the farm sector was due to corporatisation of agriculture and mechanisation. Can we have a discussion on this issue

I welcome Mulayam Singh s proposal. It is high time that someone seriously look into the usage of Indian languages in India instead of the English language which has taken a deep, deep root in India. I believe that India is the only country outside the native English speaking countries to use English as an official language in all its communications and transactions. Further, the people of India also seem to have forgotten their mother tongue and communicate with one another in English. Sanskrit, which belongs to the Indians is acclaimed as the mother of all languages but we Indians take some alien language to be ours and feel proud of it. Whilst the French, German, Russian, Japan, China and many more nations of the world are adamant in using their mother tongue in their day to day communications and transactions, we the Indians who have the oldest language in the world are prepared to loose it. I do not understand, why are we not proud of our own mother tongue or National Language. Why must we continue to use a borrowed language when we have our own. Indians must change. They must love their mother tongue and use it on a daily basis. Legislation must be adopted to use the National Language in all communications and transactions. Study of mother tongue and National Language should be made compulsory in both primary and secondary schools. If this is not done, we will loose our languages within a short span of time and we will leave nothing behind for our next generation.

I am obviously proud of my mother tongue and would definitely support those who want to uplift the Indian Languages. The stand of Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh is no doubt a noble decision to develop the Indian languages. But in this present period, when English is the medium of communication among the countries all over the world, won t India lag behind when English no longer remains use of English in public life and in government jobs.Anyways the people of West Bengal have been suffering of not having proper use of English in the government areas. There is no room for doubt, that English is the language holding whose hand we have come this way. Furthermore, computers have taken most parts of our lives. Apart from being an instrument, it is the medium which takes us to the world, provides idea of every topic and helps us to enhances our Knowledge. When English and Computers are the backbone of any developing society, how can we live in a society without these two. I am of the view that, the idea of abolishing two important pillars should not be the idea, yet we can definitely keep developing our mother tongues and providing proper training to the people relating computers.

Are we saying that without English as the main language, India will not progress and achieve what she has set to achieve. Or, are we saying that countries which are known as world powers used only the English Language to attain the said status. Look at countries like China, Russia, France and Germany, who do not recognise English as an International Language, and insist people who visit their countries to speak their language are they in any way lagging behind in any kind of development??? FYI, they are known as world super powers. Infact, Mandarin is emerging as the world s third international language after English and French. We, with the world s oldest language have got to live on a borrowed language. What an irony

Mr Mulayam s proposal sounds good, but why now, banning of english is not possible, it will take years together as it took hundred of years to adopt english, India is multi linguistic country and there is no common language other then english, hindi has no applicability in south indian states. We are accustom with english language which is your right hand, imagine how difficult it would be without right hand. So the above proposal has no reality. We can t become Russia, China and some other europian country. Secondly banning computerisation is just impossible, computer is part and parcel of our life, it will have adverse affect in our life and it will be a day without sleep, forget about development.

Anirban, for heaven sake, please understand that we are not asking to ban the English language. We are just saying give more priority to the National Language. I am quite sure, everyone knows what is a National Language and why you call it a National Language but if you do not give it the distinction that the language deserves, then why call it National Language then??? We are not English people....remember, we are Indians. British has left India about 60 years ago but it seems that India or rather the Indians has not let go of Britain..... I do not know where the problem lies.

Well, probably Mulayam is right when he stood against the use of English in public life and in government jobs. But, my question to Mr. Mulayam is where he was all these years. He has been in Indian politics for long years even he has been Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh for few years. But, at that time, he never announced anything related to the promotion of national language. Now, suddenly few days before election he has awaken to declare that the party is against English medium education and also on the use of computers. He said that his party will work to ensure that they are curbed if a government is formed with its support. Does it anywhere reflect his love for national language, I think it is just to use as an agenda to earn some votes. At a press conference after unveiling his party s manifesto for the Lok Sabha polls he said, The use of computers in offices is creating unemployment problems. Our party feels that if work can be done by a person using hands there is no need to deploy machines. Yadav also mentioned that the party is against the use of agricultural machines in farming and high corporate salaries. He said, A harvesting season brings employment for the labour class for at least six months but these harvesters will snatch their earnings. I just want to ask him one thing how wise is this to ask people to work hard in hot sun when machines can easily do that? Rather he could propose for training the farmers to work with machines and helping them to purchase them.
