And by the same logic learn to appreciate the poetry of Bharti-yar and the tirukural. Or maybe try finding the subtle nuances in the poems of Avvayaar.
Bullshit right ?
Well so is your logic of me trying to figure JaiShankar Prasad and Premchand.
They might be great. I agree, but no reason why I should learn them if not out of my own accord.
well abzolutely not out of your own personal accord
...but that they have done a lot in bringing..hindi to the international platform...you can appreciate or be ambivalent about it only if u have a taste for it...and what difference would it make if u appreciate or do not appreciate it...the testimonials that the language Hindi is rich enuff already exist in our manuscripts and they dun need to be attested by me or you...by a North Indian or South Indian.... to prove that Hindi is par all comparisons....uve lost the whole point...my only motto was.. to make us realise that the language hindi itself is unprecedentedly rich which is already an establiched fact...and yeah i do believe that hindi literature is much more rich than any other language in the world...standing shoulders with English and French...!!
Toh aap shuru karo ek Hindi Literary club. I know i might sounding very RDB-isque but this has been my personal motto since eons now: "Either do something about it or quit complaining"
well i am not whining or cribbing about anything my fren..
...i am just placing my point ...and if we can't even do that...it wd defeat the whole purpose of these threads and forums...:D..
But doing something about it...its a nice idea ...thanx for bringing it across..:smile:..ive already taught basics of hindi to some non-hindi speakers
As convolutedsignal said, India is not comparable to a Japan, France or Spain simply because of the multitude of languages and culture.
okie the other day i ws watching Mr India for the nth time
...and Mogambo had this dialogue in his opening speech...i may not be accurate..but i'll try..."yeh Hindustani kabhi kuch nahin seekhenge...yeh hamesha dharm,jaat aur kshetra ko leke ladte rahenge.."
so are u suggesting that even for the sake of our own literature we cannot be united under one umbrella...??
Well, I would say you are kinda too late baby The reality is that France is a developed country - a superpower. India is not. I know ki thoda apne ego ko thees pohunchega but thats reality !
well ...my fault...i dun really believe in these subjective terms as "developed country - a superpower"...or a "developing country" i dun really wish to go along with the organisations who have coined these terms...i wish to go a lil more with the data...going lil outta the topic out of the Forbes list of 200 richest people in the world their were 27 Indians and 10 Chinese...i quote "The collective net worth of 40 richest persons in India is $106 billion compared with China's $26 billion"...yes their are also the cons...the number of people below the povery line and stuff...but arent we giving tough competition on the positive note too..??
So why not compare India with other countries...when it has actually been doing well on the global front...!!
Okie even if we wish to exclude France , what do u have to say about Israel...one small country hugely influenced with the West...still the people give a sh*t to English...technically highly advanced ..all the computer systems here are sold with customised OS and drivers for Hebrew...even the Notepad if u'd open...would start typing left to right...for this z how Hebrewz written...!!
I just wish to make the point that drilling down deep into the structures of regions,religions and what not ...we Indians tend to loose the national identity...!!
