Absolutely correct. India as a nation has only emerged after the British rule. Before that time it was made up of scores of states, such as Chalukkiyas, Pandyas, Cholas, Seras, Rajputs etc etc. As such the only option is to continue with the present format of English as a link language.Talking of having a national language in Hindi will do more harm than good to the integrity of India. Hindi as a language has neither the richness of Tamil , Bengali or Sanskrit nor technical strength of English. And why a person from the non Hindi state has to be burdened with learning an extra language in Hindi, when the people from Hindi states need not study an extra language ? If at all they want us to learn Hindi then they have to study a south Indian language and make their intention of one India clear. Until then people from south will never accept the imposition of Hindi.

If I venture to draw your attention to the Three Language formula, I fear I will br carrying coal to Newcastle. Why single out the Tamilians, most of the Keralites and Kannadigas also dont welcome the impositioon of Hindi on an unwilling people. The impostion of Hindi was rightly perceived as an attempt to impose the North Indian supremacy on the southern states.See, Television in any country, has three objectives, viz, 1) to enteratin 2) to educate and 3) to inform. But whem TV as a medium for news dissemination and entertainment was introuced in India with the Delhi Asiad, there wasanother hidden agenda, that is to spread hindi language through all those stupid hindi TV serials. Even in Kerala, where nloo correwesondence is generated in Hindi, it has been made manadatory by the Official Language Committee that all Central Govt employees should learn and pass certain exams in Hindi prescribed by the above Committee. Even when a drastic cut is enforced in the release of funds for al ...more

I agree.
Tamils enjoy their language superiority and hate none.
For that matter, North Indians are more lingo-fanatic than South Indians.

All Tamil people do not hate Hindi....but all of them hate the Hindi fanatics. This is true to people of any language. Like all Hindi speaking people do not hate Maharstrians...but most all of them must be hating the Maharstrian fanatics.

Hi, A person to learn a language requires the interest and need for it. A school student in India already learns 3 languages ie, English , Hindi and the regional language of their state. It is not necessary for a person to learn languages which are not requied. They can learn more languages out of interest.In Europe and Far East countries local people dont even know or bother to learn English.It is not matter of dislike ,they dont feel it is necessary ......!!!
