It is the language spoken as a mother tongue by around 258 million people and known as the fourth largest language of the world. With the economic prosperity and technological development in the India, Hindi language is losing its importance. In present times, everyone wants to learn and speak English language in order to get success in personal and professional life. However, we should understand that language of the motherland and well as the culture of any country play an important role in its national development and that of its people.
