Nij bhasha unnati ahai, sab unnati ko mool|
Bin nij bhasha gyaan ke, mitat n hiye ko sool ||
Through this couplet, eminent poet, Bhartendu Harishchandra very well relays how crucial mother-tongue becomes in cultivating an individual. And that’s why, there are 22 modern languages in India recognised by constitution of India.
India might be world’s second most English-literate country, but this knowledge of global language cannot be allowed to create an apartheid mindset towards other Indian languages. Since, most of the students in India are still studying in vernacular languages, Gyansrota doesn’t focus on English as the only medium of instruction thus preventing majority of the students from enjoying the benefits of edutech.
Let us point it out, R&D cell of Gyansrota has found that most of the times, when students transcend to Higher Secondary, their course language changes from vernacular to English. This has caused a great dip in academic results… even for the brightest of minds.
To avoid such outcomes, Gyansrota provides the subject in vernacular as well as English for Higher Secondary students. So that they can compare and don’t get thrown off by terminologies… Thus, they become more confident in classrooms.
After all, most of the world-renowned scholars from India started their education in one of the major Indian languages. “If you want to touch a person’s heart, talk in his language.”
