Vice President Venkaiah Naidu calls for innovative and collaborative efforts to protect and rejuvenate Indian languages

Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday called for innovative and collaborative efforts to protect and rejuvenate Indian languages. Stressing on the need for preserving languages and ensuring their continuity, he said, it is possible only through a people’s movement. He said people must come together in one voice and pool in efforts to pass on the heritage of language to future generations. He was virtually addressing a conference for ‘Telugu Kootami’ on the protection of mother tongue. Mr. Naidu emphasised the need for quality translations and improving scientific terminology in Indian languages.

Stating that people-driven initiatives needed to preserve them, Mr. Naidu advised making ancient literature more accessible and relatable to the youth in plain, spoken languages. He also called for compiling endangered and archaic words in a language from rural areas and various dialects to preserve them for posterity.
