    1.Preface National language is the mental body (sheath d) of the nation. Our national languageHindi has brought all Bharatiyas together.(For more information read -  http://www.spiritualresearchfoundation.org )    4.A. National language is mental body of the nation:  'Just as a body of human being comprises of physical body, vital body, mental body,causal body and supracausal body, in the similar manner, the human form of the nationalso consists of five bodies in the following order: land, citizens, language, culture andreligion. Humans have 'desires or defects ( vikar  )' in their mental body, whereas thenation has 'language' in its mental body. The nation projects its feelings through themedium of language.Just as every human being must purify its body sheaths for spiritual progress, in thesimilar manner if a nation needs to progress, then along with purification of land,citizens, culture and religion, it is necessary to improve the state of its 'language' and tomaintain its purity.' - Shri Sanjay Mulye, Ratnagiri 4.B. Hindi stands third in the list of most widely spoken languages inthe world:  'As per the research conducted by 'World Languages department' in New York, Hindilanguage stands third, just after English and Chinese, in the list of most widely spokenlanguages in the world. Hindi is used as a spoken language right from Nepal, Kabul-Kandahar (Afghanistan) till Dhaka (Bangladesh). Hindi is the commercial language of Mauritius and Fiji. A 'World Hindi sumit' was also conducted' in which the lead wastaken by those countries in which Hindi is spoken. ……..   Hindi is an Indo-Aryan language and about 487 million people speak the language. In India, it is the main language used in the northernstates of Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana,Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand and Bihar,and is spoken in much of north and central India along with other languages such as Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi or Bengali. In other parts aswell, like Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan, people are able to understand Hindi.Hindi is supposed to be derived from the Khari Boli dialect,which is also known as Hindustani. Hindi language has its roots in the classical Sanskrit language and contains more vocabulary fromSanskrit. Hindi, with English and most other European languages, was evolved from a language thought to have been spoken in Central Asiaaround 5,000 BC, which is being called the Indo-European parent language by linguists. Due to this reason and because of the 200-year British rule in India, many basic words in Hindi are found to be the same as or similar to their English equivalent.  Only during the 4th century AD, Hindi was started to be used in writing. It was srcinally written with the Brahmi script, but since the 11thcentury AD, it has been written with the Devanagari alphabet, which is common to several other Indian languages as well. The first printedbook in Hindi was John Gilchris t's “Grammar of the Hindoostanee Language”. Much of the vocabulary of Hindi is from Sanskrit, though Hindi resembles, in many aspects, the Urdu language. Their grammar and much of their vocabulary are virtually identical. But for the differencethat Hindi is written in Devanagari and draws vocabulary from Sanskrit, while Urdu is written in Persian script and draws vocabulary fromPersian and Arabic, these two languages are very much similar and this similarity led to the presumption by linguists that before the partitionof India into India and Pakistan, spoken Hindi and Urdu were the same language, known as Hindustani.Hindi became the official language of India on the 26th January, 1965, although English and 21 other languages are also recognized asofficial languages by the Constitution of India. Article 343(1) of the Constitution provides that Hindi in Devanagari script shall be the OfficialLanguage of the Union. Article 343(2) also provided for continuing the use of English in official work of the Union for a period of 15 years (i.e.,up to 25 January 1965) from the date of commencement of the Constitution. Article 343(3) empowered the Parliament to provide by law for continued use of English for official purposes even after 25 January, 1965. Hindi is a language of harmony and understanding said Ban Ki Moon during the 8thWorld Hindi Conference on Hindi at United Nation headquarter in New York andsurprised many by inaugurating the ceremony with Namaste! Kya Hal Chal hai?September 14 is celebrated as Hindi Day and was adopted as the official language of Constituent assembly in 1949 on this day. The Constitution of India adopted Hindi inDevanagri Script as the official language of the union under Article (343) in 1950.It was envisioned that Hindi would become the sole working language of the centralgovernment by 1965, and state government will function in their own choice. But it didnot happen and English is also used along with Hindi.This decision of using Hindi met a widespread anti Hindi agitation by the non nativespeaker of Hindi. As a result the Official Language Act of 1963 was passed and Englishcontinued to be use as official language for indefinite period.Hindi has a history behind; it belongs to Indo  –  Aryan branch of indo European language family. The word „Hindi‟ itself is a gift of Persian, Mughals added to its flavour, Amir  Khusro was first to write Hindi Poem.Though it evolved from Sanskrit but many of its words srcinated from Arabic or Persianlanguage.This is also called as a „link language‟, as it has united the vast Indian Diaspora and also minimized the gap between South and North India.This language has travelled a long distance to make its presence felt in the World. It isspoken in many parts of the world and its one of the main language in Mauritius,Surinam, Trinidad and many others including US, South Africa, New Zealand etc.If it is the mother tongue of 180 million people then it is also the second language of 300million people.Gandhi used this language to unite the whole India and used this language as „language of unity‟. The word Swadeshi revolutionise the freedom struggle, and its entry into the Oxford dictionary marks its importance in world history.  Statistics are available which tells that Hindi is the second most spoken language of theworld.This entry in the world scenario was not a smooth ride. It faced lots of criticism andpolitics was played in its name.Now its importance are realised, George Bush proposed a budget of $ 114 million tomake Hindi a part of curriculum, to be taught from Kindergarten to graduate level. Indiatoo mooted a strategy to make Hindi as one of the official language of United Nation.Hundreds of word has made an entry into the prestigious Oxford dictionary and others.Pundit, Guru, Nirvana, Adda, Roti are very much accepted in the whole world.The wave of change can be seen everywhere, the same South India which was alwaysdivided on accepting Hindi as a national language. Deve Gawda in 1997 talked of promoting Hindi, then Karunanidhi recited a Hindi verse during a political campaign, andJayalalitha against the anti-Hindi lobby campaigned in Hindi.Hindi being a live language is gaining popularity and on the way to become a globallanguage. But Hindi is harmed by its own people from the narrow mindedness of theHindi speaking people; they do not accept the other language that is a part of IndianCulture. The rigidity has to be shrugged of and it should be kept away from the politics,and it should not be imposed on anybody.Let it be accepted by the free wills of people. Somebody said Language exerts hiddenpower, like a moon on the tides.,,,,,,,,,,,,,Discuss the importance of the study of the national languageThe importance of the study of the National language, Bahasa Malaysia in this countryis great.
