Hindi must be given its due, says External Minister Sushma Swaraj


By NewsGram Staff Writer

Putting Hindi on a level footing with other languages, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday said that the language could be used to do anything.

The remark was made on the launch of the official website of the 10th World Hindi Conference, an event scheduled to be held in Bhopal in September.

“The impression that only a specific language could enable oneself to study science or any other subject is wrong”, said the BJP leader.

“If Chinese, Japanese, German and French could succeed in doing everything in their own languages then why not Indians using Hindi,” the minister further added.

Emphasising that Hindi must be given its due place, Swaraj said that ever since becoming the external affairs minister, she would speak in Hindi while talking to a guest who was speaking in his or her mother tongue.

“If we have to have an interpreter then why not Hindi…I speak English when the person I am interacting with is using the same language,” she said.

The website which went live from Saturday is a user-friendly website where people can register themselves in the three-day long World Hindi Conference, starting September 10, through the Hindi medium.

The registration fee for Indian students and participants is Rs 1,000 and Rs 5,000 respectively, whereas the fee for foreign students is 25 dollars. Participants from other countries have to shell out 100 dollars for the same.
