A Different 3 language formula for Assam
Before 1947, Assam had ethnic languages and Assamese the common link language for all tribes. There was English as a subject in schools. Successive Hindi, high caste Brahmin Hindu ministers like Rajendra Prasad, Jawaharlal Nehru, Murli Manohar Joshi, now Kapil Sibal being from UP, Bihar have imposed Hindi in Assam schools. Assam should follow a 3 language formula where—
1.English will be used to communicate with the whole world, and used in higher studies in state and abroad.
2.Assamese will be taught as a subject in all medium schools, also in Kendriya Vidyalayas and army schools set up by central govt in Assam .
3.Every school should have the local ethnic language opted by a student, for example, Mising in Lakhimpur, Bodo in Kokrajhar, Rabha in Goalpara, Tiwa in Morigaon (because of majority of that ethnic tribe in that district).
Hindi should be taken away from schools as was the situation before 1947. Those who want to learn it can go to Hindi schools or get private tutors. We donot need to be pandits in Hindi. Whatever Hindi we learn from Bollywood Hindi films and TV shows is more than enough to be used when going to the cow belt. The educated high class also only use English in Indian cities. In signboards also, English is used in metros. With taxiwallas, the basic minimum can be spoken as we hear speak in Hindi films and songs.
This is the best way to preserve Assamese language and ethnic tribal languages. Otherwise, Hindi will gradually swallow all the native languages as in the case of neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh. Our coming generations will be absorbed into Hindi as planned by the central government of India . Only Tamil Nadu will be able to save the unique identity in the next 50 years. Will the Assam govt have the guts to tell this outright to the central govt and Nehru family? Will the Brahmin high caste ministers listen to the suggestions of a native of Assam ? The Himanta Sharmas and Murli Manohar Joshis, this Tripathi and that Chaturvedi should stop imposing their decisions on Assam . These Hindis should sit in Benaras, Kashi in UP, or Patna in Bihar and learn their Hindi language for themselves.
