  6. Please have a look at my document 'International opinion on language issues: mother tongue is the key to education, knowledge, science and English learning', along with some more documents on language issues at http://punjabiuniversity.academia.edu/JogaSingh. This document provides the gist of international research, expert opinion and international linguistic situation. It is available in Punjabi (Gurmukhi and Shahmukhi), Tamil, Telugu, Maithili, Hindi and English from the above website. Please share it with others, if you find the document useful. It contains vital information relevant for the life and development of mother tongues and, more importantly, the role mother tongues play in development in general. I can send you the pdf copy if you provide your email. You can also watch my three tv videos in Punjabi on youtube titled On medium of education with special reference to Punjabi qaumi masle episode 19, 20 and Situation of Languages and Language Policy in India - Talkshow with Prof. Joga Singh.

  26. Thanks, though edde raathre is a translation of English phrase Good Night, it is rarely used. I believe that is the case with other Indian languages too...

    ReplyDelete
  27. If it is rarely used then....how good night is said in fluent tulu or how good morning.. Have a nice day is been said

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, none of these phrases are used in daily conversations. To greet any person anytime, we say Namaskaara and then ask Encha ullar? (How are you?). Occasionally, people say 'Dever Edde Malpad' (Let the god bestow his blesssings/goodness). Or while parting, people say Paatherga Apanda(Lets talk again then) OR Thikga Apanda(See you next time then)

  28. Ohhh ok.... Thank you for teaching this. Otherwise I would have made fun of myself by saying all this.. He he
