Hi everybody,

Greetings of the day!

Yes in India regional languages are fading day by day. Nowadays in the 21st-century digitalization is everywhere in the world so English is a global language that's why everyone is using it. English is a professional language so everyone wants a great carrier hence they are using it for their benefits. Now youngsters giving priority to the western culture so obviously they are following their languages. And they assume that speaking regional languages is inferior, not standard type. In India education system also growing in the English language so everyone wants to go with that flow. It's essential to go with the flow but don't forget our culture, language, and traditions. Use English or any other language only when it requires and also be a master of it. But don't feel inferior or shy to communicate in our own mother tongue or regional languages conserve our culture and languages.

And also to conserve regional languages government should have to take initiative to use our regional languages for education and also for other official purposes.

I am Riddhima. I agree with the topic.

There are many coaching institutes for English and foreign languages are there. Because most of the people today craving fluency. If any particular person speaks fluent in English, everyone starts appreciating but at the same time when someone fluent in any Indian language, at that time no one gets recognized. Even the fact most of the people start judging on the basis of English.

In my opinion, regional language is also important for our identity but the English language is too important to develop yourself and your country. English is like confidence, if your know the English language that means you are a good choice or first choice for everyone, but at the other point you have to know your regional language too because regional language is your first identity. You are the one who knows by your regional language.

In my viewpoint, regional are fading day by day as we asr adopting western culture. Most of the schools teach you in the English language which makes the gap between regional language as we started speaking in the English language as compared to the regional language. Our society also considered English speaking people as brilliant and smart and gives respect to the that people and the people who speak in a regional language is considered as weak illiterate and people neglect it ha happened also because of British rule.

In my conclusion, we should know to learn many languages but never leaves the mother tongue language it is part of our identity.

Yes, Regional languages are fading out in India. Its main reason is today's education system and the youngsters too. Because youngsters are more interested in western culture and forgetting their own culture. English is the highly prioritized language for reading, writing and speaking all over the world. It is necessary to learn English as we can communicate all over the world if we know English. Professionally English is necessary to learn. And for society and culture, our regional language should be necessary. As that's our identity. That is one of the things to represent our culture. As we know in history we were ruled by the British for a long time. They left India physically but mentally also we are ruled by them.

According to my point of view, Regional language is must for each and every citizen as far as language is concerned. Learning any language is not bad but at the same time forgetting our regional language is a sin because the language which taught us how to talk with our mother, language which taught us in our childhood how to say mother and father, that language has special space in our heart and we as Indians have great feelings for mother and for our country. So, it's not wise to forget our regional language, apart from it we can learn an international language. Forgetting our regional language at the cost of an international language is worst.

There are 22 recognized languages in India, however there are thousands of languages spoken in India, some of them already fade away and some are about to fade. We are very diverse we have different languages so It's quite difficult to learn all the regional languages. We have our national language as Hindi to communicate with people from different parts of the country. In case of higher education or to learn any new technology or job we need some international language to communicate. As majority of the population in the world speak English it's obvious that we are concerned about English, and it does not mean that we neglect our regional language, we are giving a bit more importance to international language because of the social environment. In order to learn some language, mother tongue lays the foundation.

In my view, the primary education should be more emphasized on mother tongue at the same time government should make certain norms in today's education to secure regional languages from fading away. We have to make children realize the importance of the regional language.

As we are the second most populated country we can make some initiatives to make our nation independent on our own languages. For example today we have translator on keypads so that no only English spoken person can operate technology, any regional spoken person can operate. So there is lot of scope for future generations to relay the regional languages so that creative ideas and innovative things can come up at the same time the language can live long by giving lot of opportunities.

Hello guys.

Yes, According to my point of view, the regional language are fading out nowadays because most of the people of India prefer to speak english at the place of regional language because most of the company want to take his empolyee who can speak international language. Even people of our society judge other people with their talk if someone talk in english it means they have very good knowledge or very educated person if not than he is not educated as much as english speaker nowaday its become a mantality of every man of the community. And this mantality is mosqareding or effecting the regional language .

Thanks !

Yes, I also think that regional language is going depleted day by day because western language is coming nowadays most of this generation is learning English, French, Spanish Chinese as these languages are mostly used in the world but Hindi or any other regional language is no of use. Because if we see in GD and interview citizens have to speak in English instead of Hindi and nowadays English determines the knowledge of person weather is intelligent which is so bad.

If this is going then the day is not so far where our coming generation will not know any Indian language.

According to me, we should learn a foreign language but along with that, we should preserve our Indian languages also.

Yes, I think our regional languages are fading out. There are many reason of it.

If we want to learn any technology then firstly we have to learn English, other than that English is an international language it is the only way to communicate with people from different countries.

If we talk about our country, there is diversity in language that's why there should be one language through which we can communicate with them so English is important to learn.

Nowadays parents talk to their children in English due to this today's children donot know anything about the mother language.

If the mother tongue is eyes then English is spectacles so we should focus on our mother tongue and the government should also focus to promote our mother language.
