    Why not ? Hindi is most popular among the other local languages.

    Hindi is no more in reckoning....in today's fast paced world, only those languages which could move along global pace could stay steadfast.....

    Of course congress would like to highlight it as they have no agenda right now.....also they are great at divide and rule.

    Living in Bangalore for the past five years I've used English because the natives prefer English or Kannada. One does not need Hindi at all. Why should there be an imposition? The natives aren't imposing Kannada here. There's always a middle ground. You either get with English or learn the native language, which I'm still trying to start learning.

    #Vadaku_Vazhkirathu_Therku_Thaeikirathu..Fogot this revolutionary slogan by Periyar ?! Hindi is not our mother language..South is diversified..Here different people have different languages..Tamil, Malayalam,Kannada and Telugu makes us diversified but our Dravidian culture unites us..But united by rest of the country by one feeling..India ! We won't allow hindi to dominate our mother languages..We could speak Hindi..But Hindi people can't speak our languages without an error..So let Hindi be language of Hindi people..And our language be with us.. Don't try to Dominate or Hegemonize.!

    Watching Bollywood movies is fine,winning an Oscar for a Hindi song based music is fine,importing punjabi / North Indian ladies in south-speaking movies is fine BUT learning Hindi - NO!

    My mother tongue is Telugu And i chose Hindi as second language in my school and college. But its all about choice, it should not be mandatory, never impose Hindi on south states forcefully
