URDU OR ENGLISH?? a dilemma most Pakistanis are facing today especially the youth. Each country has its own mother language and they are not just a way of communication but also a part of their culture. Most of the people are not proud to speak our own language now and this is mostly seen in the middle and upper class. Most pakistanis are moving away from their mother language and adopting english. By adopting english we are not just adopting their language but also their culture, values, customs and traditions and in the process are forgetting our own culture. This confusion started when the British came to rule our land and since then people have been trying to copy their language and have associated it with prestige and class. This problem has been furthur aggravated by the excessive exposure and the media influence. Even our education is now focusing too much on English at all levels. It is true that English is an international language and is used worldwide, everybody should know it in order to excel abroad. Hence we need to find a balance between our choice of language between one that represnts our culture and the other that will take us to international markets.
Yes to find this balance is hard and confusing but we have to come up with one fast before its loo late. So please join this blog and give ur ideas on this problem and also suggest how to find that right balance?
