Hi All,

I am Bhanu and I am proud of my mother tongue or my state's regional language Odia.

It depends upon those community of people whether their regional language is going to fade or not. Isn't it? Respect and follow your own culture will won't let you language to fade. However People of ancient India was respecting their culture and ancestors, Sanskrit extinct and a lot of languages came to the picture.

Papua New Guinea is a country having around 800 languages. They follow one language called "Pidgin" invented by them as English is more difficult to understand and speak for them. Not only the country wants to communicate or civilized like other country but also suffering to keep their umpteen tribal cultures. So It is a human being's nature. They want to be developed and civilized.

So do not get worried about the extinction of any languages whether it is ancient or modern. In fact, A language could not be completely extinct. It will replicate or convert to any other language like how Sanskrit is today. So finally the whole world is trying to communicate in one common language which was not possible before 200 years ago. It is a time to be relished that all people can communicate with each other. We do not want any language barriers to come in between humanity.

Yes, I agree to this topic. Most of the people especially millennium, think ashamed of speaking their regional language in front of others. They think English is the only language through which we can get status and fame. Even foreigners also speak in their regional language, then why can't we Indians speak proudly. English is just a language like all other languages. But English is necessary for corporate world to communicate with other country. Most of the people know English language, therefore we should know English language also but should not feel ashamed in speaking our regional language, through which our emotions are attached.

Thank you!

In urban and semi-urban area people are mostly using English language because of the environment we human beings are very flexible we can speak any language so it doesn't mean that we forget our regional language and we have to know that in which situation which language have to use I don't think so regional language is fading out. We can say that we are using the more English language.

English is just a language through which we communicate and regional language is a language and it has the power to create a bonding between same region people.

We can't exactly say that local languages are fading. Yes, it is mandatory for many students, professionals to know English to interact with their colleagues in their work place as they can't speak one others language, but it doesnt mean that they forgot their own language. To survive in this Global competitive era, we must be familiar with english as it is a medium of communication with many higher people especially foreigners.

Good morning everyone.

Today's topic is regional languages in India are fading out in today's world.

I think regional languages are not fading out the today's world. Because every country has a different language. So that why regional language is faded out any language. But the problem is that in a country everywhere people speak multiple languages. So the language barrier is arisen who to communicate with them. That why we use international common language English.

In today's era, people have must require fluent English because the after Hindi English is the common language of our country. For example, Kerala people speak in Kannada and they don't easily understand Hindi in comprise with English. So people use common language to communicate them.

So, at last, regional language are not faded out.

I totally agree with the regional languages in India are fading out in today's world. It is true because any job profile has a condition that the candidate who apply for it should have a good communication skills and must be very fluent in english. But this is true I accept this leads to regional languages like Telugu etc are really fading out. Parents want there children to speak English very fluently this shows that right from there childhood parents join them to very high corporate schools, they themselves speak with them in English. But this leads to the eradication of there mother tongue of the children.

Hi, I am a Sami.

Yes, the regional languages in India are fading out because of no one people interested to talk their own language. If example take tamil is regional language they not interested to talk with tamil if you spoke in tamil, other people think like you don't have more knowledge. If you speak in english they feel like you have more knowlege.

Hi, I'am SUPRIYA. I'll tell why regional language is fading out in today's world.

People think it's prestige when we speak in English but when we speak in regional language like Kannada they think it's not worth for us as we have studied in convent schools but we love our language in Foreign countries like Japan, America people have using Kannada songs but in India people ignore us when we speak in Regional language. We should be proud when foreigners speak our language but in reputed we should speak english specially at times of interview as it is very necessary to get the job for our future living.

At last, I end by saying English is just a language not knowledge but regional languages are our emotions. Thank you.

India is a secular country. People living in different regions speak different languages. Regional languages are still existing. They haven't faded. People in their house use their regional language only though they use hindi or english language as and when required. But children nowadays mainly focus on learning English. For this, parents are responsible as they think that if their kid learns English, he/she can do well at school and learning that language will be sufficient. So, in this way regional language is fading.

From my point of view, the regional language is not getting paid rather it teaches us to solve all the other difficulties, like nowadays in order to get placed somewhere, we need frequent English communication skills, as we have to work with all other people belonging to other languages. So it doesn't mean regional language get faided, but made us a multi-language machine, which can adjust according to the load requirements but the full load speed is the regional language ever.

Regional languages are like a mother, with which everyone will be more comfortable. It is born from our culture. Learning English is important to communicate to all parts of the world. But our knowledge should not be weighed in terms of speaking English as it is also just a language - a common language we can say. 'we cannot judge a book by its cover ' in the same way we cannot judge a person's knowledge, decency or dignity from their language but in recent days importance to our local languages is decreasing. While the rest of the world is admiring India's culture and values we are running away from it. We should protect our roots in our regional languages.

I think regional language is not faded away in today's world.

In the present time, industry and Organisations want a common language that is English.

Some people know Tamil some people know Gujarati some people know Marathi so there is a barrier in talking with each other so English is a common language to communicate to each other so I think regional language didn't fade away but it takes place in the English language to communicate each other if there is a language barrier.

If you go to a foreign country and if you are speaking in Hindi they don't understand you but if you spoke in English they understand, reason behind is the language barrier so in day to day life the English language much communicating in organisation or any company but because of this I think regional language didn't fade away.

Yeah, our regional languages are fading away because of the psychology of India. So many people think that if a person speaks English he is very educated, brilliant, standard and a rich Person if you speak regional languages people think your not educated and you are a local middle-class person which is not at all a truth. No one cares about the knowledge someone has how much brilliant they are, they only see the language that a person speaks its the psychological effect. We have to be proud of our religion language we should have some respect.

Yes, the regional languages are fading out because the pressure of learning and speaking eng is so much that neither parents nor the children are being encouraged to speak their regional languages. According to me regional lang should also being given importance acceptance as we should not forget our culture and should cherish what we are.

Hi, I am SABRNA. I am going to discuss the topic.

Yes, regional languages in India are fading out because in the professional area everyone is using the international language English and some time Hindi. Now, these two languages become the main language.

Guardians also prefer the English medium school compare to regional language medium school for the admission of their children.

For cracking the interview in private IT sector communication skill through English is essential.
