Re: Higher education in local languages - does it make sense?

I have a colleague here (from Gujarat) who told me she is scared of Snacks (she meant snakes)....until now I thought such mispronunciations to be a figment of somebody's imagination

You wont believe me and its okay but I have heard a gujju say to the effect- 'Chis saeynd-weech saathey catch-up ekdum saraas lagse'

Chis ==> cheese
saeynd-weech ==> sandwich
Catch-up ==> Ketchup

I have heard the other way round. The gujju said "let's eat snakes" when in fact he meant "let us eat snacks".

Higher education in local language ensures that the education will be used for state.

And whats so great about English that you have been streching about children studying in English medium school,agreed its a universal language but studying in local langauge does not make a person inferior or less educated.English is just an added advantage nothing else.
In Hindi medium, the trigonometric functions such as sin and cos etc are called jya and kojya. Even the names of countries change, for instance Egypt is called Mistra. I can see difficulties in adapting to English reference books if the study was in local language. Nevertheless I think it would be a good idea to study in English and learn key terms in local language.

Re: Higher education in local languages - does it make sense?

It is however regrettable that most of the scholorly work from the past such as ones in Sanskrit and other languages remains unread today. I doubt how many have read meghdoot or arthashastra or aryabhatiya which are now just names.

Is studying in English really tough for students? would you prefer your kids to study in english medium or local language?

What do you say?
I think higher education should be in either national language hindi or else in english. frankly, i would like to see all local languages to die and only hindi to survive in India. languages have more divided us than united.

India already made the choice to accept languages other than national language (Hindi) in order to remain united. So the inference from your comment is to have higher education in English.
