Demonetisation_ new currency notes are all about narendra modi, hindi and new delhi – firstpost

Reserve Bank of India has put up the designs of the new 500 and 2000 notes on its website. Gas x strips instructions They confirm what many feared – that this design overhaul will be used to push certain iconographies that suit the incumbent BJP government. La gasolina reggaeton explosion The difference between the old design and the new seem to be centered on three things: Hindi, Delhi and Narendra Modi.

The new currency notes introduce numerals in Devanagri script, the present script of Hindi. Electricity production in india This was not the case in earlier version of the currency notes. Wd gaster x reader Is it the case that the government thinks that only Hindi people should be able to read the numerals in a script they are familiar with while the rest of us, the non-Hindi majority, would not need to read numerals in our languages? Was there any complaint from any quarter than the stand-alone Arabic (or Hindu-Arabic as it is sometimes called) numerals in English script were not being able to do the job? Why was there no Hindi-Devanagri numeral before this? May be because it is actually unconstitutional and in contravention of a Presidential order. Electricity word search ks2 Article 343 of the Constitution of the Indian union states in no uncertain terms that, ““[t]he form of numerals to be used for the official purposes of the union shall be the international form of Indian numerals”. Electricity labs for middle school The only modification to this comes in the form of the 1960 Presidential order, which allows for “the use of Devanagari numerals, in addition to the international numerals, in the Hindi publications of the Central Ministries depending upon the public intended to be addressed and the subject-matter of the publication. Gas x coupon 2015 For scientific, technical and statistical publications… the international numerals should be adopted uniformly in all publications”.

The present Government of India and the Reserve Bank of India should explain how all-India currency bank-notes fall within the category of “Hindi publications of the Central Ministries” and how does the choice of Devanagari satisfy the clause of “depending upon the public intended to be addressed”. 3 gases that cause acid rain Does the Government of India, and RBI exist to serve only Hindi speakers? They might believe so. Gas after eating meat But non-Hindi linguistic groups are bound to Hindi people and to each other, only by the compact of the constitution and not by the Hindi imperialist whims or ideologies of the union government and its agencies. Electricity facts ks2 Policies that make a majority of the population feel like second-class citizens in their own homeland have typically had very bitter outcomes. Year 6 electricity assessment The example of Pakistan’s imposition of Urdu vis-à-vis the marginalisation of Bangla is close at hand. Gas monkey monster truck driver If the government actually cared about the numerical readability of the numbers, they could have opted for the Euro model.

A proportion of the currency notes could have had numerals in Devanagari, a proportion could have had Bangla, a proportion could have had Tamil and so on, based on population proportion of citizens using those languages. Power outage houston txu This is the model of the Euro, where it is a single currency, but there are specific variants to accommodate the diverse stake-holders. Gas tax rates by state But doing that or even the present usage of Devanagari would need a constitutional amendment. Gas constant for air The BJP, in its efforts to impose Hindi, is reopening the wounds of 1965 anti-Hindi imposition struggles that have not been forgotten by non-Hindi peoples. Gas welder salary In this regard, the British had done a much better job, where numerals all many South Asian languages were given equal footing in font size, vis-à-vis English. Electricity names superheroes Thus English, Hindi, Urdu, Bangla, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, etc all had same font size numerals on bank notes as evidenced in the 10-rupee currency note of 1910.

The new notes also have the new Indian currency sign. Electric utility companies in california That sign, derived from the “R” letter in Devanagari, was not chosen with the consent of the people. Electricity and magnetism review sheet In my language Bangla and also in Assamese, the word for the currency unit is Taka or Toka. Gas out That starts with “T”. Gas near me open now How can then the “R” sound be a general stand-in for all of us? And how did this get into the new currency note? How would have “R” people felt if a symbol for “T” sound were used instead? How is the sound of the currency name for Hindi people more important than the sound for Bengali or Assamese people? One might argue that it is called Rupees in English and that has R. Electricity kwh cost calculator That too is without consent of non-Hindi people and is a term handed down by the British. Types of electricity consumers In Bengal, almost everyone grows up calling their currency as Taka, same as what they call it in Bangladesh.

Such words are not categories of nationalism but words of everyday use. Gasbuddy nj By downplaying them, a whole people are classified as second class. Gasbuddy While English is a foreign language for all, Hindi is also a foreign language for all non-Hindi people. Bp gas locations The historic judgement of the Gujarat High Court in this regard must be remembered which stated that Hindi was a “foreign language” vis-à-vis the state of Gujarat. Gas stoichiometry examples While Hindi and English are both foreign to all non-Hindi people, Hindi is foreign only to non-Hindi people but to Hindi people, it is their own. Gas bloating In a diverse, federal Union of States, like the Indian Union, the legendary Tamil Nadu leader and Chief Minister had laid down a principle that every citizen must share advantages and disadvantages equally. Gsa 2016 pay scale The usage of Hindi/Devanagari violates this fundamental principle of peaceful coexistence and cooperation as it is not equidistant from all stake-holders and give undue advantage to those for whom this is the mother-tongue and standard script. Electricity video ks2 English provides that equal distance. La gastritis The Indian union itself is the product of coordination and cross-linking of disparate ethno-linguistic nationalities mediated by English knowing elites of their respective groups. Kushal gas agencies belgaum Most trans-linguistic discussions on political issues in the Indian union happen in English.

Thirdly, the actual proportion of area or real-estate on the currency note that is given to Devanagari vis-à-vis other language scripts has gone up. Gas hydrates energy This is a very serious affair. Gaslighting examples The relative space and size of Devanagari-Hindi things vis-a-vis our non-Hindi mother tongues reflects exactly what New Delhi thinks of the rest of us vis-a-vis Hindi. Static electricity online games And there is a temporal pattern to it that has gone from equality to inequality. Electricity song billy elliot About 100 years ago, when the British ruled South Asia from their capital in New Delhi, they introduced the one-rupee currency note in 1917.

It is quite unfortunate that British colonisers treated our languages at a more equal footing than those they transferred power to – this is true for the post colonial fragments that came to be known as India and Pakistan. Gaz 67b for sale If after 1947, the absence of a British “referee” becomes a reason for Hindi to be imposed by brute force of union government majority, nothing can be a greater betrayal to the anti-colonial ideals of the freedom struggle of which resistance to forcibly imposed culture was an important component. Static electricity how it works This marginalisation of non-Hindi languages has continued unabashed. Electricity jeopardy powerpoint The equal proportion to all South Asian languages in the 1917 bank note as well as the 1940 bank note was replaced by a currency series that continued for the longest time after the 1947 transfer of power that privileged Hindi over everything else. Gas in babies at night 1947 sadly marks the watershed year for the loss of status for non-Hindi languages. Grade 6 science electricity multiple choice test In all the subsequent currency notes of the RBI, the proportion of space given to non-Hindi languages has shrunk progressively. Mp electricity bill payment jabalpur This is not by accident and is my conscious policy of Hindi imposition that is evident in all actions of the union government and its agencies, since 1947. Nyc electricity cost The pace of that has visibly quickened with a militant edge under the present BJP regime in New Delhi.

Thus, in RBI issued currency notes, Hindi-Devanagari words are big and are supposed to carry information. Gas after eating salad Non-Hindi language scripts are progressively smaller and are basically decoration with no practical use except for non-Hindi citizens to console themselves that “diversity” is alive, though certainly not kicking. Gas prices going up in michigan The Indian union might want to take lessons from Singapore where the Chinese ethnicity’s (at 75 percent of the population) Chinese characters and less than 10 percent Tamil ethnicity’s (at less than 10 percent of the population) Tamil characters find equal font size and space on the Singapore Dollar. Electric utility companies charge customers for Hindi speakers in the Indian union form a minority of the Indian union population. Electricity transmission costs Hindi mother tongue people form about 25 percent of the Indian population – that number too is arrived at after counting various linguistically non-Hindi languages as Hindi, because New Delhi orders so according to its political agenda.

Fourthly, the new currency notes do not have all the scripts of all the languages recognised in the VIII Schedule of the Constitution. Gas in back trapped Santhali is an example of an VIII Schedule language with its own Olchiki script that remains unrepresented in the currency note. Gas leak east los angeles Sanskrit with less than 20000 self-reported speakers is represented while Santhali with nearly 70 lakh speakers is not. Gas bijoux nolita The same goes for Meiteilon (Manipuri), which is an VIII Schedule language with its own script. Electricity for dummies pdf The new currency note was an opportunity to include Santhali and Meiteilon but clearly Hindi and its expansion is the only driving force in the linguistic changes. Gas laws worksheet pdf People should know that the Indian union government considers languages to be a security issue! Which is why language groups and their scripts have to have their official stamp of recognition and approval from the Union Home Ministry.

This apparently innocuous fact shows how the Union Home Ministry views the linguistic diversity of the Indian – as a security issue where it dictates rules. Z gas tecate telefono Deep down, it views diversity as a threat to the “idea of India”, in spite of its public posturing of “unity in diversity”. Electricity cost per kwh by country As we speak, the union government is forcing small linguistic groups to adopt Devanagari as their official script and withholding recognition if they don’t agree. Electricity problem in up Thus, we find the absurd situation where speakers of Bodo, whose territorial homelands are not connected to any Hindi region, have been forced to adopt Devanagari. Electricity bill bihar electricity board Thus, Hindi majority bureaucrats in the union government are killing the autonomous choice of a linguistic group in deciding their own future. 9gag instagram And the government is shameless enough to celebrate International Mother Language Day.

The old currency notes tried to avoid location-based political symbolism except for the Parliament House in the denomination of 50 that arguably is for all. Electricity symbols ks2 However, the Red Fort of Delhi in the new 500 denomination touches a raw nerve for many. Gas yourself in car The Red Fort was the political headquarters of the Mughal Empire for a long time. Electricity storage costs Indian union came into existence in 1947. K gas station It is not a successor state to the Mughal Empire. Gas konigsforst The Red Fort is a sign of pre-British Delhi-based imperialism, signifying the power of imperial invaders who attacked the countries of Bengalis, Marathis, Axomiya, Odiyas and many others. Current electricity examples Our ancestors resisted such invasions but Delhi won by brute power. Electricity shock in the body Imperial Delhi ruled by posting mostly Hindi/Urdu speaking military people in our homelands. Electricity and magnetism physics definition Delusions of civilisational continuity premised on imperial occupation do not help cooperation, slogans of ‘cooperative federalism’ notwithstanding. Gas estimator What does the Government of the Indian Union want to remind the people who were conquered and defeated by the forces headquartered in the Red Fort by putting this picture on the bank note?

The use of the “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” (Clean India expedition) logo accompanied byits Hindi slogan in Devanagari script crosses all limits of propriety. Power outage houston reliant Never before has a government put one of its own schemes on something as non-partisan and common as a currency note. Static electricity zapper This mischief would basically result in an advertisement of the present government for all times to come, till these currency notes are withdrawn. Electricity outage sacramento This is certainly not illegal but not all shameless things aren’t illegal. Electricity production by source This starts a very unhealthy precedent. Igas energy shares Now, nothing stops any later day union government to use currency notes as their pet scheme advertising billboards. Physical science electricity review worksheet The abuse started earlier during the Congress regime with the use of the face of MK Gandhi, who was associated with a particular party that is still in business and were opposed by other parties who are also still in business.

Narendra Modi announced the new currency notes after the 500-1000 demonetisation announcement. Electricity projects ks2 His address was in Hindi, without any subtitles and then in English, with Hindi subtitles. Electricity experiments for 4th graders So, the union government does care whether Hindi speakers comprehend the English speech but doesn’t care whether the majority of the citizens, that is, non-Hindi-English speakers understand anything at all. Bp gas card login This imperial attitude, that treats a majority of the citizens as second class, was furthered by all PSU (that is New Delhi controlled) banks that mostly did not care to print any information for the public in their mother tongues. Electricity wikipedia in hindi Last heard, the new currency notes do not match the structural specifications of the ATM machines all over. Gas 93 octane Since the top-down imposition of currency notes by New Delhi is sacred, all the ATM machines have to be structurally changed to match and fit what New Delhi has produced. Electricity flow direction New Delhi wont change what it produces to match what already pre-exists all over. Electricity billy elliot instrumental And that is a good analogy of how New Delhi frames its policies in all matters regarding non-Hindi people, currency notes included.
