New Delhi: A lawyer from Bihar, Indradev Prasad filed a petition in Hindi in the Supreme Court and the court has decided to hear the plea in Hindi after hearing his points.

In India, all the official work in the Court takes place in The English language. This will be the first time when a prosecution debate will take place in the Hindi language in the Supreme Court.

On 21st January, Indradev had filed a petition against the Patna High Court’s order. The petition was in Hindi and the Registrar office of Supreme Court asked him to translate into English but he declined to do that.

The Supreme Court while praised it but said because of article 348 in the constitution, it cannot do anything about it. But Indradev Prasad did not give up.

He reminded the registrar office the article 300, 351 and the fundamental rights mentioned in article 13 and 19 to say that the Hindi cannot be treated inequally.

The registrar office had to back down and allow the hearing to take place in Hindi.

Indrade Prasad always fights his cases and arguments in Hindi only in Patna High Court but being able to do the same thing in the Supreme Court is an achievement and an encouraging move for the Indian languages.

Time has come that Indians get out of this colonial hangover and start using their mother tongue with Pride.(Inputs from agencies)

  • India successfully tests the Agni-V ballistic missile on Thursday
  • This was the fifth test that missile underwent
  • With this success, India is now in ranks with US, UK, China and Russia

India on Thursday successfully tests fired its indigenously developed intercontinental surface-to-surface nuclear-capable ballistic missile Agni-V — the most potent and with the longest range in the Agni series – that can reach targets as far as Beijing.

The test took place at the Abdul Kalam Island facility off the Odisha coast. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tweeted about its success, congratulating its makers DRDO, the armed forces and the defence industry.

She said the successful test of the 5,000-km-range missile that can carry a one-tonne warhead, was “a major boost to the defence capabilities of our country”.

“The Made in India canistered missile, having three stages of propulsion, was successfully test fired,” she tweeted.

Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the Agni-V is the most advanced version of the Agni series, part of the Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme that started in the 1960s.

The missile was earlier tested successfully in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.

This was the fifth test of the missile and likely to be its first user trial, though there was no official word on it.

Thursday’s test brings the missile closer to its induction in the tri-service Strategic Forces Command.

The missile has a much longer shelf life, with its container being made of special steel that absorbs the blast of the takeoff.

In the canisterised launch, a gas generator inside ejects the missile up to a height of about 30 metres. A motor is then ignited to fire the missile.
