Abstract

This paper focuses on regional language dominance. India is a land of diverse languages. Its user follows the pattern of two or three language uses for their communication, i.e. one is 'national language', the second is ‘mother tongue’, and the next is a ‘foreign language’. It is that no languages in India accepted as a national language like other countries as it has. We Indians are urging anyone language recognised as a national language. But the problem is to choose a lucky language. The answers are ‘many’. Hindi may be renowned as our national language.
