What people are saying?
Bhaskar Dhengia Thats the mentality you question. What’s the point of making something difficult for both parties. There should be some common sense among people that India is a diverse country and will need a common language to communicate. it will just make all such petty issues go.
Keerthana No people. I am sorry but Hindi is not a National Language.. it is one of the official languages but not a “national language”. C’mon guys India is a land of different Culture, Tradition, Languages.. we cannot stick to one language and call it a National Language.
