India currently does not have a recognized national language. Therefore, Parliament should declare SANSKRIT as national language and the Central Government should envisage a National Mission for Sanskrit Literacy. The status quo may be maintained – for now – with regards to English and Hindi as official languages.

The British left long ago but sheer inertia and a colonized mindset has ensured that the legacy of blind deference to the English language survive to this day. So ubiquitous and ingrained is such servile behaviour that its inappropriateness fails to even register in our minds.

Every nation and culture goes the extra mile to preserve their language, especially in the very visible conduct of the affairs of the highest institutions of governance; for example, the Parliament, the judiciary, the conduct of foreign affairs. But it is precisely in this area that we as a people seem too inert to shake off the colonial legacy. For example, though MPs are allowed to speak either English or Hindi in Parliament, the laws finally enacted are recorded first in English and later translated into Hindi.

Even the states from southern part of India, will have a high probability to endorse this declaration much more gladly, without any protests.
