HINDI, WHEN IT WILL BECOME OUR NATIONAL LANGUAGE

ndi is in danger of declining and extremely polluted – 17

Many people in Bhaarat have opposed and still opposing Hindi as the national language of Bhaarat but have no objection English becoming as the national language of Bhaarat.

But a nation must have its own language, especially when Bhaarat has many developed languages.

The question at hand is which Indian language should replace English as the official language of the Union government, of inter-state communication, of central legislation, of the High Courts and the Supreme Court. The Constituent Assembly, after a prolonged debate, had decided in favour of Hindi.

At this juncture, propounding any other language for the purpose has no chance. In this debate among Hindus, English will continue, Hindi would be gradually strangulated, and Muslims will throw up Urdu as the only real competitor to English and will impose it, directly or through back door. Already they have made Urdu second official language in U.P., Bihar, Jharkhand, and many other States, while it enjoys the status of official language of J&K., not Kashmiri.

Savarkar's thoughts on Hindi and general comments
(1) At one time Savarkar was asked what is wrong in using English words in Marathi, Hindi etc.

THAT WOULD ENRICH OUR LANGUAGES.
SAVARKAR responded by saying, WHY DON'T YOU ENRICH ENGLISH BY USING MARATHI, HINDI, GUJARATI WORDS? HE DID NOT RECEIVE ANY ANSWER.
(2) Why do they not use Urdu grammar when speaking Urdu?
ANS: THEY HAVE NONE.
GET YOUR OWN GRAMMAR and why borrow Arabic Script? Get your own script too. We use our own developed Nagari script. Not an imported one.
(3) Linguists do not recognize URDU as an independent language. It is Nehru’s INDIA which recognizes it as separate language. Languages are recognized based on the grammatical forms. In India they are recognized for Vote Bank politics and appeasement.
To satisfy the "group ego" of a community Urdu was recognized.

(4) Try writing POETRY in Hindi using English words.
The choice of words has a culture associated with any language. Some one said come on there is no difference in "KHANA" and "BHOJAN"

I say there is. A Pandit, Sadhu, Sanyasi does BHOJAN. Pandit Bhojan Karega.
And an ordinary person --- KHANA KHATA HAI. Bhikhari khana khata hai. Bukhari bhi khana khata hai.

(5) Savarkar believed that---
(a) If a word has been Hindiised like Sukrat (FOR SOCRATES)
Or Aristu, etc THEN it is acceptable. Like Aangla bhasha, not English.

(b) Sanskrit has immense vocabulary.
Besides Sanskrit words carry meaning with the "Sound of the word”. Their meaning does not have to be referred in a dictionary. There was no dictionary in Sanskrit language.
e. g. MANAV ---- Manh Asti sa Manavah. (The one having mind is man.)
Nadi----- Yah Nadate sa Nadi (The one creating Nada (Kal, Kal kal,) is nadi.
Sarita ---- Yah Sarati Sah Saita.
Dhara-- yah Dharati sa dhara.
Pavak---- The purifier fire ( Pavan karat hai use Pavak Kahate hai)

(6) Sanskrit can create 4 to 5 million words. 3.2 million by use of Upsargas and Pratyas only. Then Sandhi words, Samasik words etc.
PLEASE COMPARE THIS TO Websters College dictionary with 65000 to 70000 words. Hold your breath ---The Sanskrit words are at least 50 time that of Websters. Actually Sanskrit may have at least 100 times more words compared to English---the most developed language in west.

Sanskrit is phonetic, precise in meaning, succinct, with well defined pronunciation (not changed since Vedic times till to day) Write MADHUSUDAN in English and Sanskrit. See the difference.

(7) Look at Vishnu Sahsra NAMs (thousand names of Vishnu) , Shiv Sahasra Nam (Thousand names of Shiva)
How many names we Hindus have?
From Mahabharata, Ramayana and History etc thousands of Names. We have 330 million gods and many more names of each one of them. Why do you want to disown this rich inheritance and immitate Urdu and English? WHY DO YOU WANT A DEMOTION?
Wiser people seek promotion and not demotion.

HINDI WITH STRONG BACKING OF SANSKRIT is equally prosperous, like Sanskrit.
By mixing English and Urdu words in Hindi without any rhyme and reason what kind of Khichdi are you creating? and Why? To appease the insatiable?
Our current names.
Narendra, Surendra, Jayendra ---- Minaxi, Ilaxi,
YOU MAY DO THIS EXERCISE EASILY. so I leave it up to you.......
How many of current names are really antique. May be few.
THIS IS DUE TO SANSKRIT GRAMMAR TECHNIQUE. OUR NAMES ARE EVER NEW.
OUR FATHER's GENERATION NAMES.
GRAND FATHERS GENERATION NAMES.
AND OUR NAMES.
OUR CHILDREN's GENERATION NAMES.
What a difference and richness.
HOW MANY URDU NAMES? ANS:________________
HOW MANY ENGLISH NAMES? Why do they use Fifth George or Edward third?
---------- Come on ___D----________ BECAUSE THE LANGUAGE IS POOR.
ANS:___________________
How Many Urdu Names_ANS:___Why every body is Moham Mad________________

WHY GIVE UP RICH LANGUAGE GIVEN TO US BY OUR ANCESTORS? AND ADOPT A POOR ONE?
But then Kalidas has said MUDHAHA PAR PRATYAYANEY BUDDHIHI.
HERE IS OUR ANSWER Mentally slaves of English and Urdu

IF YOUR NAME IS SHARMA ---that does not mean you are a Pandit. Some Sharmas are shameless, too. They will sell their ________ to make a quick buck.

Except Urdu, Persian, Arabic and English
WE CAN AND SHOULD BORROW WORDS ----surely from Sanskrit, and all our languages like Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, Punjabi, + Shaurseni, Prakrut, Apbhransha, Paishachi, Pali, Ardh Magadhi, Avadhi, Braj Bhasha, ----etc.

SAVARKAR believed that most of the words are already from Sanskrit. We can borrow from even some Tamil, Telgu, Kannad, and Malayalam as well.

THERE ARE SOME WORDS even in Arabic and perhaps Persian which have their roots in Sanskrit....
like Biradari, ( Bhratru--- Bhrata, Bhratarah--)
Amma----( root in Amba as mother)---also becomes --->Ma--> Mom etc.
Karvai--> from Karyvahi
Some one also says --- Namaj---( root in Namah---of Mamah +te = Namaste)
Kam -- like Karm This has perhaps become with Nih a Sanskrit Upsarga
Nih+ Kam = Nihkam--> Nikamma.
Amin of Arabic (?)---> comes from Om of Sanatan Dharma.

SAVARKAR
believed as far as possible not to borrow from English and these Arabic, Persian of Urdu.

IN THOSE CASES WHERE WE DO NOT HAVE AN EQUIVALENT IN SANSKRIT (this happens but rarely) then we may borrow the word if already Hindi-ised.
Then there are words which have been ---changed and modified to give them a certain Hindi identity.
e g ----- Socrates ---becomes Sukrat in Hindi.
Or Alexander---- --> Alkshendra.
Or Comishioner---> Kamesh Narah ( Nar of Sanskrit)
Savarkar accepts foreign word ---modified to suit ---Hindi pronounciation ---when there is no word in our languages

Forms of Pure Hindi or Why pure Hindi

STYLE WISE
(1) There is a strict SANSKRITIZED STYLE
One can see this one in (a) RAVAN serial (b) Ramayan (c) Mahabharat etc. (d) CHANAKYA etc.
Most of the words are Sanskrit derived ----some could be Deshya i e Pali, Ardh Magadhi, Paishachi, Bhojpuri, Avadhi, Brij, Rajsthani etc.

SAVARKAR gave a very thorough thought to this topic.
A. HE ACCEPTED those words which have been in the (Marathi) ---and have become part of the language to great degree ---that every one knows and uses them.


B. HE compromised IN USING U/F/A (Urdu/Farsi/Arabic) only in unavoidable cases.

STYLES OF HINDI
(1) Sanskritized style
Brings out "GARIMA" of the language.
(2) But for "Vidambana"----you do need Arabic, Persian etc.
e g You want to arouse Hindu pride ---you may call him " Kafir" this Urdu but used to arouse a Hindu.
(3) Some times "style wise" you want to taunt some one too.
Like a gali---then it has a use.
(4) Then "unavoidable" usage, as per Savarkar.
(5) Golwalkarji used a really perfect style though.
One will have hard time looking for NON - BHAARATIYA words in his presentations.

When a number of SANSKRIT DRAMAS (a lot and lots of them) have been written in Sanskrit---but they maintain a highly cultured atmosphere though out.
Many people TRY IN THEIR HINDI SPEECHES and Poems to use as much Sanskrit as possible.

THIS TOPIC REALLY NEEDS MORE RESEARCH ON MY PART AND THINKING.

To reach a confirmed position, Hindi lovers need to do some search/research of the literature.

One strong Hindu can change the thought-current of the whole world...
Hindus should have fearlessness,the first prerequisite of a spiritual life.

Sanskrit is a language not confined to any religion or a region.She is beyond every diversity we have.She is the mother of all indian languages and has even been a fundamental framework of many foreign languages including English.She has the power to bridge the gaps between each of us(state,religion,language).She is the most ancient heritage of this great land and she rightly deserves her honour.Besides,most of the regional languages have their roots in Sanskrit.So it will not be a problem in learning the language.I wish Sanskrit is encouraged in every institution.The language always plays a major role in improving the character(a character which is of utmost purity) of a person and I feel Sanskrit can transform an individual towards a honest and an enlightened life.From my 8 year study of Sanskrit i personally feel that Sanskrit language if made India’s national language can imbibe moral and ethical values in every individual and its study can make life a lot worthy and inspiring.I,myself have experienced its divinity and the beautiful words it has can never be found in any other language.I strongly feel that Sanskrit should be made India’s national language,further it should be taught in every educational institution in the world.Please,let us not oppose any language on the basis of a bias towards any religion.Every language is great,only the potential of every language is different and Sanskrit,i feel(sincerely,i have seen Sanskrit in an unbiased perspective) has a great potential.
