हिंदी दिवस के उपलक्ष्य में एक ट्वीटमाला


A thread on Hindi Diwas; for the last few months I have been influencing my daughter to learn Hindi by telling her greatness & elegance of Hindi

हिंदी दिवस के उपलक्ष्य में एक ट्वीटमाला; पिछले कुछ माह से मैं अपनी बेटी को हिंदी की महत्ता और लालित्य के बारे में समझा रहा हूँ|

She is in Grade 2 and just started learning the Hindi alphabet and grammar. 

वह कक्षा २ में है और अभी हिंदी वर्णमाला और व्याकरण के पहले पाठ पढ़ रही है| 

Yesterday, she asked me why I think Hindi is a great language. Context being India has so many languages and our mother tongue is Marathi. 

कल उसने मुझे पूछा कि मैं हिंदी को एक महानतम भाषा क्यों मानता हूँ - जबकी भारत में इतनी सारी भाषाएँ हैं और हमारी मातृभाषा मराठी है| 

My answer - No doubt Hindi is a rich language in terms of literature, vocabulary, variety and its script Devnagiri is very scientific in nature... 

मेरा उत्तर था की यद्यपी हिंदी साहित्य, शब्दावली, विविधता से परिपूर्ण हैं और उसकी प्रमुख लिपी देवनागिरी वैज्ञानिक है, ... 

... But then these virtues describe almost all Indian languages.

...ये सारे गुण केवल हिंदी नहीं बल्की सभी भारतीय भाषाओं में हैं|  

Hindi is great because above all else, its a perfect representation for the melting pot which India stands for. 

हिंदी की प्रतिष्ठा इसलिए है क्योंकि वह भारत देश ही की तरह वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम की परंपरा को सजीव करती है| 

Its name comes from a Persian word Hind (used for Sindhu / Indus River).

हिंदी यह शब्द फारसी लब्ज़ हिन्द (जो कि सिंधु नदी के नाम से निकला है) से है| 

Its vocabulary is not just from Sanskrit but enriched by words from Prakrit, Arabic, Persian and many Indian languages; and it shares its word roots with several Eurasian languages.

हिंदी की शब्दावली प्रकृत, अरबी, फारसी और कईं अन्य भारतीय भाषाओं से बनी है और इसके शब्दमूल कईं यूरोपीय भाषाओं के शब्दों से मिलते हैं|   

Hindi has at least 10 documented dialects and can be written in at least 3 scripts  - Devnagiri, Urdu Script and now Romanised Hindi (used on Whatsapp mostly).

हिंदी १० से भी अधिक बोलियों में बोली जा सकती है और दीवानागिरि, उर्दू और [अमूमन व्हाट्सऐप पर] रोमन लिपियों में लिखी जाती है| 

As the fourth most spoken language in the world, Hindi is possibly the best representation of the Indian ethos of Unity In Diversity. 

विश्व की चौथी सबसे अधिक बोली जाने वाली भाषा, हिंदी, भारत की अनेकता में एकता का सच्चा प्रतिबिम्ब है|

How will travel industry transform post-Covid

Unlike philosophers, journalists and teenagers, the world of entrepreneurship does not permit the luxury of gazing into a crystal ball to predict the future. An entrepreneur’s world is instead made of MVPs (Minimum Viable Product), A/B Tests, launching products, features or services and gauging / measuring their reception in the market to arrive at verifiable truths which can drive the business forward. Which is why I have never written about my musings or hypothesis about travel industry – we usually either seek customer feedback or launch an MVPised version and gather market feedback. However, with Covid-19 travel bans across the globe, the industry is currently stuck – while a lot of industry reports and journalistic conjectures are out, there’s no definitive answer to the way forward. Besides there is no way to test your hypothesis since even the traveller does not know what they will do when skies open. So, I decided to don my blogger hat and take the luxury of crystal gazing

Experienced vs. Freshers – an MBA perspective

Shubham and me compiled and created an article during our first year of MBA. It was never published, nevertheless MBA aspirants will find it very useful. Publishing it online for the same purpose. However, Shubham and myself claim a copyright on the text .... and of course very many thanks to all our freinds whose views have helped us compile the article.
