The context: The article emphasizes the need invest in translation to and from Indian languages ​​and ethics education in schools and colleges.

Importance of translation:

  • Translation holds the hand with science, philosophy, medicine, sociology, religion, and gender and caste studies
  • Translated texts silently open doors to different experiences: It makes readers aware of experiences, feelings and situations completely different from their own.

Importance of language in education:

  • Languages ​​are linked with the culture and history of their region of origin.
  • bright thoughts who inspire people to a better life are expressed through this medium.
  • Language facilitates rules and movements:
    • Convoluted rules that can remotely control words
    • Supporting a movement for generations.

Steps to follow :

  • Need for value education: For national understanding, because the local ignorance about ourselves and our country is staggering (surprising)
  • Remove indifference to people different from us: This can be changed by training teachers committed to promoting peace and equality to hold values ​​education classes through translated works.
  • Literature can shed light on aspects of our lives that are not addressed by politics and economics.
  • India at 100 must focus on soft powers: the language of peace, and our multilingualism
