Where have i in any of my posts said that the girl should only be taught indian culture? I believe in my post in the other thread too i said a child should learn culture of both sides. From my POV school and friends might teach you language but not culture, i dont know about anyone else but i learnt my culture and religion from my family.
 
Also another thing, a lot of schools where richer children go in india only allow english to be spoken in school and hindi is reserved for the hindi class/ period. So thinking that the child will pick up hindi as they grow up in school and friends isnt always correct because kids tend to speak in english with friends just as they are used to doing in school
 
P.S dont categorize people as racist without knowing their viewpoint first.

As far as I know hindi is mandatory to pass high school. In some states such as punjab once has to learn to read and write punjabi. So please stop arguing for the sake of arguing.

you are giving the example of punjab, a state in north india, i will give you an example of another state, tamil nadu, south india, there too hindi is taught, but majority cant or wont speak it, it is just a formality that it is taught, but it isnt learnt in any real sense. I believe i also made the statement specifically to the more elite schools where richer children go. Now you may say that their daughter wont go to a school in south india, well let me give you an example of mumbai
 
my own cousin goes to a school in mumbai which is slightly more middle/upper class and is more modern in approach, they are not allowed to speak in hindi in or outside of class on school premises, even with their friends, ony english.
 
I have no interest in arguing for no reason, there are tons of things i can do to fill my time. But i read in another thread that you are from canada, well so am i.... so tell me do all canadians who studied here know french? are fluent in it? because i can tell you, i am not.

Anyways, i am done stating my POV, whatever you may think or believe is entirely upto you. It was fun debating.
 
But, I would like to say, to all forum members of either side, to keep the comments and criticisms limited to the people on the show, and lets not pick on or comment on fellow members (ofcourse healthy debates are fine). It is my sincere request to everyone that reads this.
