BOL LOVE YOUR BHASHA

(On the occasion of Hindi Diwas The Quint is reposting this article from its archives. It was previously published on 10 August 2017)

“There are two languages that we follow. Pet (stomach) ki bhasha and dil ki bhasha,” Amish Tripathi’s grandfather had once told him.

So what’s pet (stomach) ki bhasha?

English. Everyone needs to know English in order to get a well-paying job.

Dil ki bhasha is your mother tongue. And without your mother tongue, your life is empty. So it’s important to keep your mother tongue alive.
