Learning Hindi, English and state language should be given equal importance in schools

I am surprised by this writing (See the following report from the Sambad). Educated people are speaking and writing in Hindi and English because these are global languages. Learning Hindi and English will get them a job. Odia MPs can not debate in parliament because of their poor command in Hindi and English.  There is no harm in learning Hindi and English. It seems Natabara babu is worried because of globalization. May I ask, is Natabara babu teaching his children only in Odia? It may hurt people like Natabara babu; but in my opinion inIndiaevery state should make Hindi and English compulsory along with their state language.

    I have heard people talking of strong “political will” to eradicate corruption. I have my own views on it.  “Political will” should not simply suggest the “will of politician”. Politics in its broadest sense denotes the way a society is organized.  Hence to me, “Political will” represents the intent and aspirations of various stratas of society.  In different strata of society, there are leaders, people from civil society groups, professional groups and mass media who could play a proactive role in espousing the cause of containing corruption.  In this context, the role of   Shri Anna Hazare and like-minded people in demanding Jan Lokpal independent from government is worth mentioning. Prior to Annaji’s movement there was a widespread feeling that corruption cannot be challenged, much less cured.
