This Tamilian Woman Hilariously Schooled A Man Who Wanted Hindi As Our National Language

Boom.

Posted on

The debate over Hindi imposition in Indian states was recently reignited after a new section of the Bengaluru Metro was inaugurated with Hindi signboards.

#NammaMetroHindiBeda campaign impact at ground level. Illegal Hindi boards in Namma Metreo were taken down by BMRCL.

The hashtag #NammaMetroHindiBeda has gone viral with citizens expressing their anger over the government trying to force Hindi down their throats.

On July 4, Republic held a poll on Twitter asking readers whether Hindi should be imposed on people in non-Hindi speaking states or not.

Should Hindi be a choice or compulsion? Tweet with #WantHindiOrNot and speak up!

One of their followers replied to the poll saying that he was in favour of Hindi made our national language.

It was at this point that Iswarya V. jumped in on behalf of all Tamilians to basically say "no, thanks".

What followed was Iswarya schooling the eager Hindi-supporter about why, if there had to be a universal language, English was a much better choice.

And then the conversation took a hilarious turn.

@Anshukmitra – "Okk then we should converse in Hindi. Say what you want to say."@Iswaryaval – "I don't think this fellow understands that he's been trolled! :)"

@Anshukmitra – "Okk then we should converse in Hindi. Say what you want to say."

@Iswaryaval – "I don't think this fellow understands that he's been trolled! :)"

The thread went massively viral, with people from all across India sharing it.

The most hilarious conversation u will read. A Bhakt discussing Hindi should be a compulsion

So the next time you make an argument in favour of Hindi imposition, maybe don't.
