INDIAN LANGUAGES

Worth in the past and worthless at present


The elite claim that India is indebted to English language imposed during colonial period as a blessing in acquiring knowledge that has made the nation ‘modern’ and ‘developed’. This self congratulatory characterization is not shared by anyone except the elite who refuse to see the facts of colonialism for sustaining their hold.
During the reign of Ashoka, one third of global wealth was produced in India. Mughals could sustain a decent share of one forth of World output. But colonialism pauperized once wealthy part on earth. The elite in south Asia claim English language is the greatest gift of colonialism and have excluded Indian languages from governance and creating knowledge. It has made India more corrupt, increased absolute hunger, collapsed education system, and has turned south Asia into a “Race of Imitators” unworthy for anything.

The decline of India during colonial period is reflected in every aspect of economic and social progress. The factors that undermined development during colonialism tend to persist even after independence contributing to underdevelopment. The primary reason for underdevelopment is the exclusion of Indian languages from the domains of governance and knowledge dissemination thereby effectively establishing an unaccountable corrupt administration and neglecting human capital formation.

International trade in the recorded history of humanity began from Kerala, then Chera kingdom in ancient Thamizhakam. Musiris now called Kodungallur was the gate way to India. Islam came to India through this port before it reached most part of present Islamic world. Earliest Christians of the world entered through Kerala. It had regular trade links with Roman empire, Syria, Asia Minor, Egypt and many other Middle East countries. It is cited in stone writings of Asoka, travelogues of Ptolemy and Pliny the Elder, many epics and ancient literature. Once famous traders and planters are now reduced to migrants depended on foreign remittances. The language of ancient Thamizhakam was a world language. Now modern Malayalam is not considered fit beyond high school.

Lost Glory of Sangam and Tamil Civilization.

...... Languages of Vijayanagara Empire are excluded from
When Raja Raja Cholan built “Thanjay Peria Kovil”, Britain was under Norman French and English language was in infancy. Learning Medicine and Engineering was possible in Tamil. Great monuments could be built by Tamils using their language. But in modern Tamilnadu, studying in Tamil medium is a handicap and debarred from IIMs and IITs. When Telugu and Kannada were the languages of technology during Vijayanagar period, Hampi was a world class city and London was a village. Now the Supreme Court of India has declared that one cannot even become clerks by studying in Kannada medium schools and all Telugu medium schools are converted into English medium schools.


 

 

The world admires ancient Nalanda University as "one of the first great universities in recorded history” from 427 to 1197 CE. Astronomy, Medicine, Science and Architecture were taught in local Pali language during the period when modern European languages were not even recognized as literary languages. Unfortunately neocolonial elite in modern India has debarred the languages of gangetic plains from IITs and Medical colleges. Worse when two young IIT students tried to submit a design of cost effective souchalay (Toilet) for rural masses, it was not turned down. Not surprisingly 660 million people of gangetic plains speaking Hindi and Bengali in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Bangladesh are the most deprived people in the world.

 

Taxila near Lahore in Pakistan was the centre of higher education at least a millennium before modern universities such as Harvard or oxford came in to existence. Indus valley of greater Punjab and Sindh region of Pakistan and India was the cradle of civilization reflected in Harappa and Mohanjadaro. However ruling anglophile elite in both countries have made this part of the world a worst case of denial of knowledge in the world.


Punjabi is the language of holy men who unified oriental spiritualism with Semitic monotheism for a better world. No other text reflects the national heritage of India better than Granth Sahib written in Sant Bhasha containing words from Sanskrit, Prakrit, Apabhramsha, Persian and Arabic. Not only Lehndi dialects of Punjabi is used in it, but also Brajbhasha, old Hindi, Awadhi, Sindhi, medieval Marathi and Persian. It may be shocking but true; the language of Granth Sahib and Bhangra spoken by over one hundred million people publishes less than five hundred books a year and has less than thirty websites.

Not only is the creativity of people reflected in the caves of Ajanta in Maharashtra, but also harmonious coexistence of different faiths. The 31 rock-cut cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BC include paintings and sculptures considered to be masterpieces. In present day India, Marathi and Gujarati spoken by over 150 million people are not deemed worth to pursue any creative study. One cannot even study cooking, and hotel management in Indian languages.
