I know I will attract flak for this and believe me, I have.
But this is news to me too!
Hindi is not the national language of India; its just the first official language according to the constitution! Or first among equals!
In my opinion, and I have come to believe that it is unnatural to expect folks for whom Hindi is not the mother tongue to be fluent at Hindi and for fluent Hindi speakers to put down non-Hindi speakers or speakers who cannot speak the language so well is just rude and ill-mannered and crude!

One thought on “Hindi – not the national language?”
I completely agree!
