Languages grow on the basis of its utility and need: Prof. Dwivedi New Delhi, 03 March: “Languages develop based on their utility, necessity, and ability. If our languages are limited today, we cannot put the responsibility on anyone else. Languages and mothers are lauded by their children. For the development of languages, we have to decide such ways, through which languages can progress.”

These views were expressed by Prof. (Dr.) Sanjay Dwivedi, Director General, Indian Institute of Mass Communication during the two-day national seminar organized on the topic ”BhartiyaBhasha aur Bhartiya Gyan Parampara” under the joint aegis of Bhartiya Bhasha Samiti (Ministry of Education, Government of India) and Arundhati Bhartiya Gyan Parampara Kendra, PGDAV College (Evening). On this occasion the principal of the college, Prof. Ravindra Kumar Gupta, Prof. Umapati Dixit from Kendriya Hindi Sansthan, Agra, JP Singh, Assistant Registrar of Bhartiya Bhasha Samiti, and Prof. Harish Arora, coordinator of the seminar, was present.

Prof. Dwivedi stated that the time has come where we should encourage and respect our languages. Hindi and other Indian languages are gaining strength and recognition on a global platform. By speaking Hindi, the country’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is ruling the hearts of the world.

During the seminar, Prof. Ravindra Kumar Gupta, the college’s principal, stated that Indian words are common in both Bhartiya Bhashayen and Bhartiya Gyan Parampara. If we want to know and understand India, we must first understand the Bhartiya Gyan Parampara. According to Prof. Umapati Dixit, Bhartiya Bhashayen and Bhartiya Gyan Parampara are as pure, flowing, intact, and uninterrupted as the Ganges. Language, like the Ganges, flows in its own way, assimilating culture and civilization.

On this occasion, Assistant Registrar of Bhartiya Bhasha Samiti, J.P. Singh said that we work for the promotion and development of languages. Languages are carriers of culture and their protection is necessary. As a guest speaker, Prof. Rachna Vimal of Satyavati College’s Department of Hindi stated that every countryman should learn an Indian language other than his mother tongue.

The two-day National Seminar featured five sessions that were successfully organized. Prof. Harish Arora, the seminar’s coordinator, stated that India has always been superior in the field of knowledge. The Vedas were written in India at a time when most people did not know how to read or write. This is why India is known as Vishwaguru.ᐧ
