Is my Mother tongue worth preserving ?
Time & Location
About the Event
Languages play a crucial role in our daily lives. They are not only our primary medium for communication, education, and social integration, but also lie at the heart of each person's unique identity, cultural history, and memory. Despite this, out of 7,117 languages worldwide, we are losing 1 language every 3.5 months. Why is this? Should we preserve the languages of our ancestors?
With strong evidence showing that bilingual and multilingual children flourish more in society, now is the time to look at how we are building our future generations and what role, if any, our mother tongues must play.
Join us as we earnestly explore a topic relevant to each one of us with Dr Ram Vaidya, a Sanskrit scholar, a linguist and an international coordinator for Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh.
