The Challenges of Cultural Diversity

Question

In your opinion has the linguistic organisation of states helped or harmed India?

Answer

The linguistic organisation of states has helped India because it has strengthened the unity and integrity of the country. Interstate conflicts arise time to time but these are disposed or compounded with mutual discussions and with intervention of the central governments. For an instance, Punjab was reorganised on linguistic basis in April, 1966. In course of reorganisation, Himachal Pradesh being hill area, the Hindi region of Punjab was transferred to that state. Since then, this state has progressed leaps and bounds in terms of agricultural production and industrialisation.
