While attending the second convocation of Swami Rama Himalayan University, Dehradun, Vice President M Vekaiah Naidu said that children should be provided primary education in their mother tongue to instill a sense of respect for it in young minds. We should never forget our motherland and our mother tongue, he added
Respecting the mother tongue
“There is nothing wrong in learning different languages, but we must respect our mother tongue because it can express feelings and thoughts which other languages cannot. Primary education to children should be given in their mother tongue to instill a sense of respect for it in young minds,” Naidu said.
Noting that the idea that the entire world is one family forms the basis of India’s culture, the vice president said secularism was in the DNA of every Indian.
