Is Hindi our national language? Do we have a national language? The answer to both these questions is absolutely not. In this episode, the first part of the Language combo, Meghnad explains how Hindi turned into a language which is so widespread and used in India.

This is part one of two for Language. In the next episode, we talk about the other widely adapted and used language: English.
