A Language Facing The Modern Era: Serious Concern

9 Jul

Hi Akshay

Thanks for the follow *, as the reason I write is to share.
* (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

# By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Who says men can’t multi-task!

Is it patriotism for nation or a linguistic patriotism? As I observed, this “Stop Hindi imposition” is nothing but a type of behaviourist attack on the lang. with different selfish motives. I asked myself more or less- first,what their purpose or intention behind that procession or rallies? Second,why only regional states[non-hindi] take part in these types of processions?

Is history really important for a country?

9 Jul


”A country without history is a tree without roots.”

Is the history of a country that important?

History works to bring nationalist feeling in the citizens of a country.  But, what is Nationalism?

Nationalism is a pretty modern concept evolved in Europe in the 19th century. It was about giving them a single identity and uniting them on the basis of a common language, a common religion, and a common enemy. Ironically, present day Pakistan can be an exact example of such a European nation. Basically, a nation-state will need history to move ahead. Minorities maybe persecuted, regional languages may be suppressed in this process. History creates faith, divisions, premonitions. Faith and reason cannot be compatible. But doesn’t mean one is above the other. Future gets a lot into trouble there.

Take the case of United States of America, compared to the rest of the world, the country hardly had…

Thirty percent of concussions are suffered by children, but the only international guidelines for recovery currently in existence are for adults.  Professor Nicola Starkey from the School of Psychology at Waikato University talks to Lynn Freeman about her new research into how best children and adolescents can recover from concussion.   Nicola has been awarded $1.1m by the Health Research Council to conduct a study with 600 children and adolescents aged 5-17 years from across the Auckland and Waikato regions.
