Chief Minister said that efforts have also been made to promote own language, culture and costume in the state. The practice of indigenous costumes has been introduced in the convocation ceremony at Universities. We have to understand the importance of our language. Today, one language is being expired in the world per hour. Experts of language understands its importance and are also concerned in this direction. We will have to end this issue ourselves and if we take this initiative firmly in this direction, surely it will be successful in promoting our language. Our language also influences our understanding. We also see dreams in our own language. We have to try to break the outer shell of foreign language. He said that during his visit to countries like Thailand, Singapore, he spoke in Hindi with Indian origin immigrants, who were residing there and then they appreciated it very much. It displays people’s attachment to their language and culture.
Chief Minister said that acceptance of Hindi today has not only increased in the country but also abroad. While Hindi is being taught in 32 of the US universities, Hindi is also included in 7 languages of websites. There should be efforts that Hindi should also be the language of the honorable Supreme Court and High Courts. Chief Minister said that today we also need to spread the teachings of our great men. For this, programmes are being organized in the schools on the occasion of their birth anniversary. In the Ramayana, Shri Hanuman is such a character who never gave up, who has never failed, he is the biggest management guru. This type of information should be with the students.
