Hindi Imposition

Recommended Posts

Truly. No other language that I know differentiates between son’s kids and daughter’s kids. Please enlighten me

 


Never knew the usage of Pota, Poti vs Nati, Natin.
 

Qualifying relations is very important to. Everybody is uncles and aunts In English 

 

In Kannada Mama, Mami and Bua, Fufa are same names as are grandchildren. All others in this list are distinct

It's the same in Punjabi, it's just a case of being very specific. Just like you have different names for various aunts and uncles. Hindi should only be a secondary language in non Hindi majority speaking states. 

Knew about Pota/Poti and not about Nati/Natin. Is it a popular usage or just very specific to some regions?

It is elitism in South India, talking in English is considered sophisticated than in regional languages. Anyway, Director Anjali Menon is a mallu ! 

Growing up in Delhi that was true there too. If you speak english you are better than others. I have seen that on this forum too. 

I am very good at Hindi, proud of my skills and but I would never force it on anyone. I think Hindi is an amazing language but is falling behind to English. But I speak proper Hindi, not the UP variant type.

I still rememba the first time I was called a "Naarth Indian" - imagine my shock, Bombay born and bred, ancestors from Gujarat.  Never thought of myself as a "naartherner".  

 

Just because you don't think of yourself as a northerner does not mean you are not one.  North of Belgaum = Northener.  And before you say anything, Belgaum is ours and is actually Belagavi ;-).

No one forced Hindi on me, and I consider it is one of my primary languages and am proud of it. At the same time if a Tamil speaking person does not want to learn it, one has to respect that. As long as everyone respects the Indian constitution it is all good.

Some said to me on this forum that I only want all "naarth indian" players. Which based on my posts one can see that I dislike all the players who don't perform.

A certain someone shamelessly shills for any and all cricketers who speak 'his' language, but accuses me of being gujju biased.  Because somehow my fondness for Boomrah, Bhuvi, Siraj, Sundar, Samson, Shaw is motivated by my desire to see 'gujjus' in the team....

Always thought beyond Gujarat & MP real South India starts...  Marathi actually looks closer in lingo to a south Indian language & probably has nothing in common to the North. 

Tamilians probably don't view anyone other than themselves as South Indians...  Hence the Dravidian theory kicks in.
