Importance of Language in New Education System

The daily lives of members of any race, creed, and region of the world are being greatly influenced by Language. Language helps express our feelings, desires, and queries to the world around us. Words, gestures and tone are utilized in the union to portray a broad spectrum of emotion. Therefore, “Language is very important for any society and the country, and the New Education Policy which is being formulated will give the language its due importance,” stated Satyapal Singh, Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development, MHRD. “Soon, a new education policy is coming. It is very unfortunate that people think low of themselves if they don’t know English. Like you can’t change your mother, you can’t change your language also,” he said further.

Growth and Development

“When the education policy came in 1835, Lord Macualay had said that India’s people will remain Indians in their looks and blood but their thinking will be British. In spite of several talks about working for the mother tongue, things don’t move forward,” he added while addressing the crowd at an award ceremony held at the All India Council of Technical Education, AICTE in New Delhi.

Ministry of Human Resource Development, MHRD was formerly known as Ministry of Education, is accountable for the growth and development of human resources in India. The Ministry is broadly divided into two departments: the Department of School Education and Literacy, which deals with primary, secondary and higher secondary education, adult education and literacy, and the Department of Higher Education, which deals with a university education, technical education, scholarships etc. The present HRD Minister is Prakash Jadavkar.

Nuances of communication

The ability to communicate with new people in various dialects is mainly because of the adaptability. Being unable to communicate in a country is akin to living with a serious impairment; it is very difficult and near impossible, to adapt and get along with new people if there is no way to communicate with one another.

A large part of what allows to harness our innate ability to form lasting bonds with one another is the unique and diverse methods human beings can use to communicate through written and spoken language; separating mankind from the rest of the animal kingdom.

The importance of communication is often overlooked. Despite our great prowess in communication, misunderstandings and mistranslations are commonplace. It is not sensible to blindly accept that one can travel the world and expect all of mankind to understand his or her native tongue. A desire and willingness to adapt to new cultures and methods are necessary in order to travel the world, whether, for business or pleasure.
