Madam, there is a strong feeling among those who come from the Hindi-speaking areas that we are giving a go by to Hindi. in fact, it is strange how, in regard to this particular Bill or to a measure of this kind, two extreme views could be held and placed before the country or placed before this House. It is said that Hindi is being relegated to the backyard, and English will continue throughout this period, And it is further said that even after this ten-year period, the appointment of a Committee is just an eye-wash, (100) is a way to lull the emotions of the people in so far as adoption of Hindi is concerned. I do not want to say much on that subject. iI can only say that the fears and doubts expressed by those who come from Hindi speaking areas are not at justified. i must say that Hindi has considerably progressed during the last few ears , and if we see the progress which has been made since 1947, it would be found that it is something remarkable.


Before 1947, the position of Hindi, inso far as various (200) matters and subjects were concerned, was low in the list even as compared to other regional languages of the country. But during the last 15 years, the progress has been so rapid indeed, enormous progress has been made, and I might say that a large number of books, standard books, have appeared, have been published on literature ,history, geography, economics science, etc. Whatever field you might look into, you will find that most valuable books ‘have been written Which could be taken advantage of. I might even admit before the House that although i come from a Hindi area, (300) l cannot really comprehend and understand many of the books written in Hindi. it is a different matter. the point is I have not progressed along with the development of Hindi. I am behind the times, I must admit it. it is people like me who are behind, and sometimes i feel that my generation perhaps may not be able to catch up with the development of Hindi. The next generation will do so, but a man like me, of course who knows something of Hindi feels that i have not been able to catch up with the  with the progress of Hindi. (400)

When I saw the two Volumes of the Criminal Procedure Code and the Indian Penal Code wholly translated into Hindi by the Commission appointed by the Law Ministry of the Government of lndia, l was really surprised, But they have done that job, they have completed that job, quite a difficult job. So it is both I mean, Governmental as well as non ofiicial efforts which have contributed to this progress and development of Hindi. But it is a diiferent matter that in spite of this progress Hindi has yet to be learnt by millions of our peeple. (500) it is one thing to develop literature and the language as such it is quite another to make it a common vehicle for its being used by the general population. Even today if we go into the matter fully, we will find that Hindi is not understood, especially in the South by the people as a whole , in the administration also, I find that it is not possible by the officers coming from various States, not only from the South but from other  areas also where Hindi is not the regional language, that it is not possible for them to work (600) in the secretariat without the use of English language they have still to do their werk in English and if Hindi is made in any way obligatory, they will be faced with a very difficult situation indeed. Besides that it has also to be realised that the advantages of English are obvious. I am not one Who is well versed in that language in fact I know my own limitations. Yet, i would not like to deny the value and importance of the English language. it is no doubt a historical accident that English has-assumed an important place in our county(700) but, Madam, there were many things which should not imbibed, which we should not imbibe from Englishmen. But it would be unfortunate if we gave up learning of English only because it had come from the Britishers. English language. by itself, is One of the richest languages in the world; it has assumed an exceedingly important place as an international language. It is therefore that I make bold to say that if even two per cent of our people know the English language, it would be advisable to take advantage of that situation and continue to learn it (800) as one of the foreign languages both for our national and lntemational requirements. Having said this, Madam, it must also be admitted that English could not b e continued as our national language and cannot be acceptd as our national language. (840 words)
