Matrabhasha Diwas

21st February, 2023

UNESCO has declared 21st February every year as International Mother Language Day to promote the dissemination of mother tongues and a fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue.

The program commenced with the welcome address by Dr. Divya Lakhani, HOD-MBA. She emphasized that Matrabhasha is very important for the upbringing of the children in the family. It is the first language to which each child is exposed to. Hence, the NEP 2020 also has advocated that the medium of instruction, until at least grade 5, will be the home language/mother tongue/regional language for both public and private schools.

This was followed by wonderful performances. Ms. Devanshi Dembda, student of MBA I, recited a poem in Sindhi Language. Ms. Shubhada Katti narrated a story in Kannada to bring out the essence of cultural diversity in India. Lastly, Dr. Abhijeet Kaiwade, HOD-MCA, emphasized that even though India has around 125 major languages and approximately 1600 other languages, we are united due to the values inculcated by our parents and ancestors.
