Description
Foreword

Linguists in India never tire of informing us that linguistically speaking (in a structural sense) Hindi and Urdu spoken in the same regions are the same language at the informal spoken level but with different societal orientations of lexical choice at the formal written level. But in the eyes of the Indian Constitution the two are declared as separate languages both privileged to be included in the 8" Schedule a decision reinforced by different choice(s) of script, with Hindi embodied in the indigenously evolved Brahmi related ‘Devanagari’ and Urdu in the imported but modified Perso-Arabic script. These choices of vocabulary (with Urdu taking pride in Perso-Arabic vocabulary and Hindi leaning towards Sanskrit) are in keeping with public perception about Urdu being viewed as the language of the Muslim minority in the otherwise Hindi majority states, and the return of Urdu as mother tongue by Muslims in Karnataka and Hyderabad who speak ‘Dakkhini’ has only added to this.

Hindi and Urdu together - as interacting living languages - best reflect the complex composite culture of our country which may have developed some fault lines but the common foundation has stood its ground and communication bridges have been in place for centuries. It is time to strengthen these bridges and create overt links between the two languages to enrich the verbal repertoire of the populations that have often suffered as a result of divisive language policies. The teaching of Hindi to Urdu speakers and the teaching of Urdu to Hindi speakers would strengthen both languages and any step taken in this direction must be encouraged. Mrs.Lalitha Handoo, a Kashmiri Pandit who has suffered this separation but striven to bring the two together in this dictionary, must be commended for her effort. Central Institute of Indian Languages hopes various states would draw upon this effort and initiate the creation of this linguistic bridge word by word.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
