Linguistic diversity is a foundational pillar of our civilisation – West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar

West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar wished people on the occasion. “Linguistic diversity is a foundational pillar of our civilisation; connects us with our heritage and defines our socio-cultural identity. Emphasis on a well evolved New Education Policy on mother tongue is a remarkable milestone,” he tweeted. International Mother Language Day is observed on February 21 to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism.
