This can be a very debatable or cooked up topic but I’m not going into the top deeply, rather I would like to offer my opinions about this.
I must say, a country like India, knowing of “A certain” language is very momentous for each and everyone. Mostly the ridiculous thing is, a person who can speak very well in that language, they are considered as high category or high class people in the society!
What is this language I’m talking about? The answer is “ENGLISH” . Can you imagine?
I don’t really know what other countries does, but in India this happen! I’m also talking about achievement, so let’s go on this part with this example….
Hima Das, An Indian sprinter the first Indian to win a Gold medal in a track event at the World Junior Athletics Championships in 2018! She lives in Assam (Assam is the North-east region in India). Hima is a village girl. Her father is a rice farmer, she has four siblings and she is the eldest one. Hima has been playing football since childhood. She wanted to pursue her career as a footballer. But we all know, the aftermath of born in a poverty-stricken family. So, She had to suppress dream as a footballer, but not from play. She switched her play from football to races. She started participate on Short and middle distant races. THAT WAS THE START OF HER JOURNEY!
She completed commonwealth games 2018 in the 400 meters relay. Hima became the first Indian track athlete to hold a global title on winning the Gold medal at the World U-20 Championships 2018 at Tampere, Finland, in Women’s 400m.
This is her biggest achievement, congratulations again Hima! I’m so proud of you! but after writing all this powerful sentences about her, what is the main problem? Why am I writing all this?
The biggest problem is She doesn’t know English! She doesn’t know how to speak in English properly! Well, why shouldn’t she be? she’s the world champion now, she’s staying abroad! That’s the difference..
She tweeted about not knowing English, she couldn’t properly. The esteemable, the honourable fellas of the society uploaded a video of that!
She becomes the most disgraceful woman for not knowing English. Is not that enough for a woman, bring so much proud, joy to our country? There are 20% of people speaks English in the whole world. The top speaking languages are Chinese and Spanish. Will she/we feel ashamed of unable to speak the languages?
Can we not forget about what she know or what she doesn’t? This is her proud moment, this is our proud moment to celebrate her performance for what she did! what she did for our country! We must proud of her work, not what language she can speak. Do you agree on this?
I feel there are so many words left, I don’t want to go in deep. I’m proud of her, I feel proud of what she did for our country.
Is it her problem or our society? We need to change ourselves. We must see what is good about her and cheer her for tomorrow,not discourage her to do all things! Do you feel the same of what I wrote? let me know.. 🙂
I’m Proud to be an Indian!
