Stories they tell about languages

Prof Ramakant Agnihotri
This is article on languages and impact on teaching-learning in today's Hindu. The article discusses the "purity" of language and dangers in making assumptions about parent language, preserving and teaching a "standard" pure language. Of particular interest is the discussion on the role of Sanskrit. The article also makes recommendations about how to structure learning processes that can build linguistic sense in children, during the initial years of schooling (many others have written about the absorbent mind for language in the early years of a child's life).The article can be accessed here.

Prof Ramakant Agnihotri also headed the NCF curriculum committee on teaching of Indian languages.
