Hindi can­not be im­posed on oth­ers — Adoor

Gulf News - - INDIA -

award- win­ning film­maker Adoor Gopalakr­ish­nan says Hindi is a beau­ti­ful lan­guage, but it should be counted as a re­gional lan­guage and should not be im­posed on oth­ers.

Gopalakr­ish­nan, 74, is re­garded as one of the finest film­mak­ers of In­dia.

“Hindi is a very beau­ti­ful lan­guage. There are very fine writ­ers in Hindi, no doubt about that, but you can­not im­pose Hindi over and above oth­ers,” he said. Adoor feels as In­dia is made up of var­i­ous cul­tures and tra­di­tions, an “ex­clu­sive” at­ti­tude will not work. ( PTI)
