One alternative that I’d like to propose to this group is to suggest English as a common medium of exchange🙏
Samskritham is perhaps the only alternative 😇
Hindi is a medieval era mongrel of various local dialects, with too strong an influence from non-Bhaarateeya traditions such as Persian, Turkic & Arabic Urdu, and is therefore far too limited in my mind.
As a Tamizhan - privileged to have received one of the planet’s truly classical languages 🙏- I find Hindi profoundly unacceptable!
This argument that a big segment of colonized India speaks it, is one I find frankly Ridiculous!
The advantages with English are two-fold:
- It enables Bharathiyas to be fully integrated into the practical reality of the 21st century world, that is our everyday life.
- Even more importantly, Sri Aurobindo 🙏, composed His “Savitri” - that summum bonum of His uniquely extraordinary essence of the Vedic perspective - in English.
