Saare Jahan se achchha Hindustan Hamara, Hum Bulbule hai iske ye gulsitan hamara. But the question is that are we giving the same respect to our natinal language hindi. no but rather than using hindi words we are going to adopt hinglish languge i.e. using hindi words as english. whose fault is this? the England, U.S., or the other english countries whose language is english. or we are responsible for this dire situation of our Hindi language.

Hi riyaz, Though in 1967 Hindi was declared the national language of he country, there was a lot fuss about it. To be frank now Hindi is National Language only officially. Recently the Gujrat High Court declared that Hindi is not our National Language. On the other hand the souther part of the country too are against this. Now any language is not accepted for all sort of communication by one and all it naturally loses the credit of being a national language. Possibly only for this reason we are drawn towards English more than Hindi and the fact is that Only English serves the means of communication across the country. But Hindi is a nice language when mixed with Urdu.

We can not blame other countires for this. Hindi is a bonding language of Indians.It is quite natural that any language will adopt other languages upto a certain limit. Even english language adopted some hindi words. In Malayaisa, the Malay language adopted many Tamil and Hindi words. So this is quite natural.
