Hey hi the 2nd of October 2, it’s Gandhi Jayanthi apart from the fact it’s a government holiday. It also has a great significance which the younger generation seem to have forgotten.
Gandhi Jayanthi is very important day when a very important personality was born. That was our beloved “Baapu”!
Baapu seems to be a vary well known person amongst the children believe me! You would be surprised with the fact that the kids in their preschool known more about Baapu than a college student. Do you ever think why? It’s because Baapu’s beliefs and teachings were very simple which effected small children to a great extent, because every time kids fought
Mom said “what are you doing son?
What did Mahatma Gandhi teach us?
As we all must have watched the very well known HINDI movie "Lage Raho Munna Bhai" where our great father of nation is portrayed in the minds of a bunch of youngster as just a guy on the money. He is called "Money Guy" let's ask ourselves this question is he just a money guy today?
English is a language that has changed the world. Let’s look down the memory lane of how the British Empire took control of almost the entire world. The British not only the world but they wanted to create a bridge to communicate to the world. What other way is better than communicating with the language?
People under the British rule were forced to understand and express themselves in English thus learning its trial around the world.
As we know that the British used English as a bridge to communicate, but now we use it as the way of living. English is important in every aspects of life, be it education, business or travel.
A language achieves a global status when it develops a special role that is recognized in every country. This might seem like stating the obvious, but it is not, for the notion of ‘special role’ has many facets. Such a role will be most evident in countries where large number of people speak the language as a mother tongue – in the case of English, this would mean USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa and several Caribbean countries and some of other territories. However, no language has ever been spoken by a mother-tongue majority in more than a few countries (Spanish leads, in this respect, in some twenty countries mainly in Latin America), so, mother-tongue use by itself doesn’t give a global status to a language, the language has to be taken up by other countries of the world. They must give it a special place within their communities, even though they may have few (or no) mother-tongue speakers. It is important to have a global language to make communications easier
English language has successfully achieved the ‘special’ place of being the most used language worldwide as it is used in ¾ of the world’s malls, ½ of the world’s technical and scientific journals, ½ of all the newspapers, 80% of the information in computers, all international air pilots and services, all international sea captains, many movies, songs and much business, ½ of European business deals, 7 of the world’s largest TV broadcasts (CBS, NBC, ABC, BBC, CBC, CNN, C-Span) and Tv televangelism of Christianity (MCcrum 10).
