    Multinational companies thrust for education through English medium
    because their products could be sold universally if the English could be the world language.Here the rulers wish to join with them to share benefits with English companies.So all our leaders prescribe English.
    But educationists all over the world say mother tongue is the best medium for education.Psychologists also say so.So education must be through mother tongue .This point does not imply that we should not learn other languages.All languages are the products of the people concern and all should respect other languages.
    But ours is a perfect language and all knowledge could be brought to it .So why through other language we should learn.?
    We can learn a number of languages after finishing school level education .We can learn English as a language but not through it .We can choose the languages according to our taste and need .It is not the most people of the world talking.Many countries using their languages only up to doctorate level of education.

    governments should have a language policy to develop all languages and they should give due respect to all languages and the people .At least our medium of education upto 10th standard should be Tamil .Tamil ,Tamil
