The Governor of Maharashtra, Bhagat Singh Koshyari requested people in the state to make sure that children get primary education in the Marathi language. During an event organized on the occasion of Marathi Language Day, the governor of the state said Maharashtra must pledge to offer primary education to the students in Marathi. The state governor said, ‘Marathi Bhasha Din’ is celebrated every year on February 27, the birth anniversary of poet and Jnanpith awardee late V V Shirwadkar. While English should be mastered, one should take pride in one’s mother tongue.’
Every year, people in Maharashtra celebrate Marathi Bhasha Din on 27th February commemorating the birth anniversary of VV Shirwadkar, a great poet and Jnanpith awardee. Most states have indeed been striving hard to introduce English even in government schools for the bright future of students. As English has become the most essential language these days, students couldn’t understand the significance of their mother tongue.
To evade this, the governor had made this decision on the occasion of Marathi Bhasha Din in the state. Uddhav Thackeray, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, and his government have been striving hard to conserve and develop Marathi. He further said, ‘Easy and meaningful Marathi words should be used in official work.’ The state CM announced that the government will set up a ‘books village’ in every district to enhance the significance of Marathi.
