Multilingual-education in Odisha: A look on “Kosli language”

December 9, 2011 at 3:06 pm 1 comment

Earlier we have proposed that the medium of instruction in “western Odisha” should be in “Kosli language”. We have also advocated the inclusion of Kosli language in the 8th schedule. After receiving our e-mails (my and Dr. Arjun Purohit), Dr. Debi Prasanna Patnaik wrote an article in the Sambad that recognition of Kosli language will divide the state. This followed a series of discussion in the cyberspace and print media.

Recently, Mr. Prasanna Kumar Karabara wrote an article in the Samaja about the importance of Kosli language and other languages in Odisha. He also stated that Kosli language should be included in the 8th schedule.

Today’s Samaja reported about the multilingual education in Odisha. The article is written by the same Dr. Debi Prasanna Pattnaik.

In this article Dr. Pattnaik has indirectly advocated that the minister should discuss with the representative of Sambalpur and Balangir to promote languages of that region in education sector. Although, he fell shy to utter the name of Kosli language.
