Hindi is a fascinating language in itself…
I did my primary education from Kendriya Vidyalaya. There the language is closely worked out and the children are explained and taught. Hindi is not just a language, but it works to connect culture and nature. Now books in Hindi have become less and people are moving towards English. This has also reduced the speaking and writing of Hindi. Unless we speak or read in Hindi, Hindi cannot expand. Hindi is a fascinating language in itself, provided it is written simply. Only then a common man can understand the beauty of this language i.e. simplicity. Sometimes such words are used in Hindi that are difficult to understand. People are not aware of the true meaning of such words. Even though I come from a science background, I give priority to Hindi. Talking in Hindi can make you feel comfortable in front of you, which is difficult to do in any other language.

We have to grow our heart for colloquial language…
There is no other language as simple as Hindi. I communicate with other employees in Hindi while working with wildlife. Hindi is a common language. Local language, Urdu and other languages are also available from it. Then it reaches out to the people. We have to grow our heart for colloquial language. We need to work on its dictionary as well. The selection of words should be such that the common man can understand the simplicity of this language. We also did a webinar in Hindi on the ecosystem. Simple Hindi words were used in this. Science has always been viewed from the point of view of the British. It could not be widely used in Hindi. In such a situation, more work is needed in this from a scientific point of view.
