Logically! Don’t know English, but Eros it!



        Language can actually influence our brain’s capacities to understand things.
        The language truly is a convention; at least English language seems to be illogical by appearance! Language offers vocabulary we need to express our emotions…

        One cannot learn language by trying to understand it. Then how do we learn it? Actually by leaving it…

        In Sanskrit the word for language is “bhasha”. It means that which converses. That’s the key to language, where we converse, when we live the language, and then it becomes a part of us.

        A little baby, learns his mother tongue and speaks at the age of 4/5 years, without any lesson, but by living the language, won’t have teach any grammar, the language flows automatically. We use grammar for training the mind’s ability and some of its faculties of analysis. Every language has a certain grammar and the grammar molds the brain’s through process to get acquaintance.

        That the language of mother tongue, actually the brain absorb the meaning, while the result is comprehension, which is richer because it is built layer upon layer. Whereas, in respect of English language, if held many words together can get the meaning & without layering, the brain summaries it and goes on…

        But, most Indian languages has the structure to communicate by layers, because they derives from Sanskrit, a language which can express a variety of emotions and all the shades in between, variety of thoughts with perfect clarity and structure.

        Do you know? In Russian language there is no word for ‘alternative’. In English, have the word ‘Love’… In Greek, there are two words for Love; one is ‘Agape’ (selfless Divine love) & the other ‘Eros’ (love based on desire & possession). 

        Thus, likely a person, whose mother tongue is English he is constantly confusing these two words when one says a “Love” at cross purposes…

        In English, you to repeat certain words again & again. Such as in long sentences ‘he’ & ‘she’… ‘The’ comes in repeats.  Letter ‘H’ occurs very rarely compared to other letters and because of ‘the’ H gets prominence.

        If we contrast, with Indian languages… which have words for fine emotions, clarity of thought, because verbs, nouns & adjectives change form according to the rest of the sentences.

        Let’s take a fragment of ‘Hindi’ sentence “me jata hu-me jati hu”, if you drop 'me'- you still knows whether it refers to a man or woman. Take this in English-“ I am going”- I don’t tell if it refers to man or woman...

        So, there are languages which are better suited for communicating ideas & emotions.

        As a matter of fact, my mother tongue is ‘Bengali’, do consider “Hindi” as my second & National language, while my professional performance based on ‘English’ which is my language for argument! Ultimately established, that I do not know English, but I Eros it…and quite satisfied.

Beauty! without language..
         Yes! My language lesson starts from the place where I stay and go everyday!…

        Hope, you will find out the meaning of object and elements, in a way we could get to learn...

        According to one estimate, an average person does have knowledge of about 5,000 to 7,000 words in English. If someone is exceptional it may be 8,000 words. Thus out of 8 lakhs words in English one may know about 10% only... With the help of this knowledge, a person speaks fluently English!…Think!!

Good thought. Yes, 1% knowledge of vocabulary is sufficient to converse. But language is made up of grammar also along with vocabulary which we may need to know substantial percentage to converse and convey meaning properly.
