Children, these days, grow up with a mindset that a person who speaks English knows everything and is better in every respect than those who are not fluent in the language. Those who choose to speak in Hindi during the interviews or elsewhere are looked down upon. This mindset should be changed. It is true that English is a global language and is given preference especially in the corporate world and it is not wrong to hone the students’ written and spoken English. However, they should not be given an impression that Hindi is lesser than English in any respect. It is time the students must be taught to value and respect both the languages alike.
