Abhishek Tripathi [2] | Bhumani Tyagi


Abstract: INDIA a country which is basically recognized for itsvaried culture and lifestyle. A country with 22 recognized languages, written in 13 different scripts, with over 720 dialects and if we apply the notion of ONE NATION, ONE LANGUAGE here, will it work Today the beauty of India lies in UNITY IN DIVERSITY, but the concept of one nation, one language will kill the essence of this beauty. When people of India are given the basic fundamental rights that they can live their life the way they want and can speak any language they want, then will it be justified to impose the notion of ‘one nation, one language’ on them Won’t it go against Constitution of India Won’t it be violating the fundamental rights of the citizen of IndiaIdentifying the major stakeholders as the common population of India, We put forth our views on the questions raised above and will this western concept of One nation one language followed by countries which have small population work and is a tangible approach for a densely populated country like India Will a country like India which has a total 122 major languages and 1599 other languages adopt one language as LINGUA FRANCA. This Article deals with various data of Census 2011, Official Languages Act, 1963, Official Languages Act, 1967, Article 344 (1) and Article 351. We aim to unquestionably prove why this concept is not a tangible approach for a country like India.
