In this episode, Meghnad wonders how English became such a widespread language in administration and in India, generally speaking. By the way, it’s all Macaulay’s doing. He makes even Trump look like a tree-hugging, refuge-rescuing liberal.
Meghnad also steps back and wonders: What is the point of language even? Why is it so emotive and important for human beings in general?
This is Part 2 of the Language episode. We did Part 1 last week where Meghnad spoke about how Hindi is not a national language and why it is so important to understand its origins. You can watch that episode here
And, as always, don’t forget to do the homework at the end of the episode. This time, it’s going to be a fun one. See you at the Homework review on Wednesday, January 23, at 7 pm.
