do learn better in their home language This is not a verdict on English Shivali Tukdeo Since the early 19th centuryquestions surrounding language have occupied a rather uncomfortable place in the formal system of Indian education While the knowledge of English was unmistakeably part of the making of modern Indian educationits relationship with vernacular languages was a source of anxiety Education policy in the early post-Independence years struggled with the challenge of balancing language and learning How do we introduce students to multiple language-worldsin all their richness and complexities How do we teach them an appreciation of different knowledge systems How do we teach different scripts Some of these questions were addressed by the three-language formulawhere regional and official languages were introduced in schools at different points Several decades of language education policy and multilingual education laterthe question of language continues to be unsettling and unresolvedfor many reasons The recently approved National Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) policy is a case in point The proposaldrafted by the women and child development ministryincludes an overarching framework for early childhood education: regulation of playschools; infrastructure and sanitation norms; child-teacher ratio; better monitoring practices and curricular strategies The section on the inclusion of the mother tongue or home language and local vernaculars has predictably aroused animated reactions The inclusion of home or local languages in preschool is a step in the right directionfor educational as well as social reasons To begin withit is an obvious and overstated fact that young children learn better when they understand the language of instruction Equally important is the fact that children begin to respond to the world around them through their home languages even before they enter preschool and can go on to complex conceptual learning in these languages Early childhood education focuses on developing the following domains: cognitivephysicalemotionalsocial It also stresses on non-cognitive domains like motivation and curiosity Evidence-based studies on early childhood and research in educational psychology and cognition suggest that exposure to multiple languages can facilitate early development Importantlyearly childhood education revolves around activitiesdiscoveriesplaysstories and songs that go on to construct learning and meaning for the young child Emergent literacies ways to listenseeplayrespond and participate in ones close surroundings prepares the young ones for what comes later in schoolreading and writing Given the interactive nature of early learninghome languages and local vernaculars would be excellent resources to introduce the child to the rhymesrhythms and stories of a world that she inhabits With the inclusion of mother tongues and local vernaculars in preschoolsmany neighbourhoods and localitieswith their different storieswill enter the realm of school According to the 2011 censusIndia has 1587 million children in the age group of 0-6 years Strengthening anganwadis and non-formal early education would be essential to improve the overall quality of education Quality early education would also be the foundation for the realisation of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act (RTE) A large percentage of children drop out and experience learning difficulties because they do not have the opportunity to learn in their home language Its inclusion in the early yearsalong with English and other languageswould enhance their school experience The questions of medium of instructionlanguage choice and education often mirror the social relations of domination as well as the aspirations that have been associated with formal education For decadesAdivasi students have gone to school only to find the silence and invisibility of their languages If the responses to the recent textbooks in SanthaliGondi and Kok Barok are any indicationAdivasi children want to see their languages in school The development of local languages as languages of knowledge production and dissemination will be crucial in democratising our education But this development needs to occur keeping in mind the current material conditions and symbolic expectations of education Despite the constitutional guarantee (Article 350A)demands by minority language rights groups and growing research on educationlearning in the mother tongue or home language has not become part of the mainstream The language debate would be more productive if it were not framed within the binaries of either-or The proposal to introduce mother tongues or home languages is

ladies of Game Of Thrones it is that you should never ever mess with them They will definitely come back for sweet revenge Rakshabandhan is celebrated as the day when sisters celebrate the presence of their brothers as a protector But women like Arya Stark Cersei Lannister Danaerys Targaryen and Margery Tyrell have proved that sometimes sisters do not necessarily need a brother to protect themselves Arya Stark Arya Stark has been on her own ever since her father Ned Stark was beheaded in front of her eyes Although she was from a family with all kind of privileges she accepted the times when life gave her nothing but poverty to look forward to Arya Stark is a true example of a survivor She is adaptable to change While avenging her family’s death not everyone has the quality to calmly prepare a kill list Danaerys Targaryen The mother of dragons was sold raped and tortured but yet she managed to survive and become the Queen There was a point of time in her life when her own men abandoned her but never has she lost hope Although in the recent episodes of the show her strong army and her allies are being brutally butchered by Lannisters she has not shown a single hint of losing the real battle When desperate times calls for desperate measures she manages to make the right decisions Only time can tell us if she can be the real queen Margaery Tyrell Margery Tyrell was one of the cleverest and sweetest women in Game Of Thrones She was diplomatic and knew clever ways of gaining trust and winning the hearts of people If she had any enemies it’s not because she was mean but rather because they were haters who just couldn’t take the fact that she was loved by all Margery also never lived in la la land She was aware of the upcoming dangers and took steps accordingly If only the Sparrows had paid heed to her words maybe she would not have died Cersei Lannister Perhaps the reason why Cersei Lannister does not have our sympathies is because life has not been as cruel to her as it has been for Arya Sansa andDanaerys Her evil schemes are beyond our wildest dreams but deep down she is really just an ambitious woman who is fiercely protective of her loved ones She wants nothing but the best for her sons and daughters and she couldn’t be more consumed with guilt and remorse for secretly knowing all along that her childrens’ deathswere largely due to her own fault But to give credit where its due she can pretty much take care of herself You know your survival hopes look bleak if you are not in her good books While others would go into

saying while he failed to deliver on his much tom-tommed promise of bringing black money back he wore a "suit worth Rs 10 lakh" during US President Barack Obama’s visit in New Delhi Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi criticised the government over various issues AFP Addressing an election rally he also accused the Modi government of succumbing to US pressure in resolving the nuclear deal logjam and claimed that in case of any accident in a nuclear plant US companies will not have to pay compensation "He (Modi) had said I will bring back crores of black money will deposit 15 lakh in every account I want to ask you did you get 15 lakh You didn’t get anything but Modi wore a suit worth Rs 10 lakh during Obama’s visit" he said The pinstripe bandhgala suit Modi wore on Sunday during his talks with Obama in Hyderabad House had his name embroidered all over it triggering a debate in the social media On the nuclear deal Gandhi said "If there is any problem in a nuclear plant the American company won’t have to pay and it will be the Indian government which will pay the compensation" The Congress Vice President also took a dig at Modi on his Swachh Bharat Abhiyan saying the prime minister has not been able to address problems like inflation and employment "When you asked for employment and demanded that inflation be brought down he gave you a broom saying clean India and went to US and Australia" Asking people to support Congress in the upcoming Delhi Assembly polls Gandhi wondered what changes BJP will bring to Delhi as the party was already running the city as it was under President’s Rule "BJP says bring our government in Delhi But they are in power here they are already running Delhi" he said In a veiled attack on Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi he said the anti-graft movement led by Anna Hazare had people who are now in both AAP and BJP who "used to meet in Lodhi park in the morning and do the planning (to attack Congress)" "They had made big promises Jan Lokpal They said if Jan Lokpal comes corruption will be wiped out Jan Lokpal came did corruption stop They spoke about power and water they said they will reduce power and water tariff But did they" Gandhi asked He also accused the BJP government of not passing on the benefit of significant drop in oil prices in the international market to the people "During our times international price of crude oil was USD 140 per barrel Today it is USD 40-45 per barrel The benefit has not been passed on to the people" he said Gandhi alleged that BJP "sparks" riots whenever elections are due "BJP sparks riots whenever there are elections You see Haryana Uttar Pradesh Jammu and Kashmir even in Delhi But I would like to remind you that when there were riots in Trilokpuri Congress was there and not Kejriwal" he said Highlighting Right to Information Act Right to Food law and MNREGA as major achievements of the UPA government Gandhi said the BJP government has not done anything concrete in the past eight months "You have your dreams youth have dreams of a better future good jobs but BJP wants that dreams of only three to four industrialists are to be fulfilled" he said "This is what he (Modi) has done He gave you broom and India is not moving forward Nobody is getting opportunities Three-four industrialists are getting everything" he said adding "He went to Australia an industrialist got loan Russian president came another corporate got benefited" he said Asserting that Congress wants the poor to be part of development dream of Delhi he said AAP came into being to weaken Congress "Our rivals know that there is only one way to keep poor out weaken Congress AAP has come up to weaken Congress by division of its votes Anybody who is leaving AAP is joining BJP" he said "Earlier Kejriwal used to do a stir on everything everyday He did a protest on corruption He did another on rape "Now 30 percent rapes have increased in BJP regime and there is nothing He has not launched any protest against BJP Because he wants to weaken Congress But I would like to tell you that he won’t succeed as the poor are with us" The Congress vice president said that the main issue in Delhi is poor people and the party will give them space Underlining his party’s agenda for the Assembly elections he said Congress will provide right to shelter on the lines of Right to Food and regularisation of contractual workers "We will give right to shelter to the poor We will give them roof and we will regularise temporary contractual workers in departments like DTC sanitation etc The first thing our CM will do after coming to power will be these two things" he said during his 15-minute speech On supporting AAP during its 49-day regime he said that the party did so because the people of Delhi supported them "But when they realised that they cannot deliver on their poll promises they ran away Congress won’t run away We will win the elections and show how government is run" he added He also exhorted Congress workers to go among the voters with this message and garner support for the party Gandhi was addressing an election rally in Shastri Park area in Seelampur east
