Every drop of water counts... And every word posted here also counts.....
"Proud to be an indian"
NO & YES are two short words, which need a long thought..., most of the things we miss in life are due to saying NO too soon or YES too late. Have a great day.
In government matter we cannot say that malayalam is left behind because in most of the government offices i've gone even the forms there are in malayalam.Even when a NRK(Non resident Keralite) goes to a Panchayat or Taluk office for submitting any papers,they are made to fill many forms in malayalam ,which make te NRKs think about their language Malayalam and the importance of malayalam .
Importance to English language should be given more because their is development everywhere and when all are developing why should we malayalis be left behind( naadu odmbo naduve odennam ennale pramanam ).I know many malayalis living in foreign countries who only know a bit of english to speak and when it comes to writing for them its almost impossible for them .They dont even know to write a letter in english.
Importance should be given to both Malayalam and English as we are in the heights of development.
You might have seen the Kerala Ministry's decision to make Malayalam compulsory at the school level and the same will be taught as first language. Also the State Government is taking all steps to get the status of a classical language for Malayalam.
Understanding things through one's mother tongue is far more important and nothing can replace it. Any child if born and grown within Kerala will be familiar with crow (Kakka), but will not be with sheep. So when the child learns "Ba ba black sheep ..." he has to create an image of sheep or look into a picture of it. Whereas if he learns "Kaakke kaakke kootevite........" he understands it very easily and enjoys the beauty of the poem.
Similar is the case with every subject.If things are explained in the mother tongue, it will get registered in them forever.
English has to be taught as a second language after fourth standard, so that by the time the students go for higher studies they will be in a position to read and understand subject books in English.

Let us hope in one field where as of now Malayalam is very much neglected the decision of the Government may bring in a drastic change.At least in the coming years we can see a Malayalam speaking [not Manglish speaking] girls and boys over the various TV programmes if the decision works out in terms of implementation.
