  3. this might be a stupid question, but why are most of the signs written in english?

    ReplyDelete
  4. l>t: yes indeed yours is the stupidest question i had ever came across.they are not actually signs l>t, a different language written in roman alphabets...got it now? the language is Bengali! or rather Bangla....!!! Please try to respect other languages and cultures as well. Because that’s an indication of an educated human being.

  6. Medusa I'm not trying to be rude. I just wanted to know. It seemed odd to me.

    nemo; in any language you are a jerk. If you don't understand that, a fuckhead.

    sorry, medusa

    yeah nemo, please do reflect on your netiquette. having a "cause" does not give one an automatic right to be obnoxious.

  8. and guys lt is talking about the signs in the pic and not your bangla bhashan.

    lt: the signs are mostly in english cos, well the protestors were mostly students studying in the english medium and the ones we were targetting (well if we were) were also english speaking students.

    so english became the primary language.
    right medusa?!

  9. like i thought, l>t doesnt even know how to talk to people. where to restrain her words. we all know how to use that 'f' word dont we l>t? but, unlike uncivilised, uneducated people, we do restrain ourselves from using it. isnt that so? atleast i do. ask me whether i have a problem with anything or not, use your logic, use your brain(oh! ofcourse if you have any),argue like the 15th century Humanists did...BUT NOT LIKE A STREET PUNK!!!....cause i hate to talk to them about languages and cultures, about history and rhetorics, politics and liberal arts....i had some valid point there in my previous comment. but you hadnt any. only by using those coarse lnguage you disgraced yourself...not me. does your 'humanist' notion teach you to use loathsome vulgar words often in your daily speech? or does it tech you come up with some logical and reasonable arguments...like cultured people?
    ***************************************

    i am awfully sorry medussa, but you see, i had no other choice but to reply to the comments of this American 'Humanist'.If this irates you...once again i am sorry for that.

  10. uncivilized, uneducated street punk. No one has called me that for a while.

    what the hell am i supposed to be logical & reasonable about? You are the one who went off the beam, first.
    Am I supposed to let you just talk to me like you are superior? My humanist 'ideals' tell me you are no better then i am.

  11. nemo, I must add, I do admire your passion & I'm sure your motivations are from the heart.
    I think we are just having a cumunication barrier.
    One thing I like about medusa (& friends) is that they are patient with my bumbling ways.

  12. l>t....nemo is young n full of righteous anger, so just be patient with im.
    n am so sorry for all the abuse. i know that saying sorry aint enuf though.

    nemo......u r going to be in deep shit for this.

  13. Hey L>T, I followed you over here and it just seems you can't keep out of trouble. A girl after my own heart.

    Well, it seems nemo is just what you said he was L>T " a f--- head with a cause. As I understand it (from my friends from India) most people in India are taught to speak English but the Official National Language is Hindi. I also understand that there are many regional languages but I can't name them all. I suppose the signs you were referring to L>T, were in English so everyone could understand the meaning of their message. That's all you had to say nemo. I guess when you're all worked up and in a lather you don't bother to try and get your message out in a meanigful way to someone that doesn't understand the whole situation. Now if you would like to apologize to my friend L>T it would be appreciated. Have a nice day everyone.

  14. medusa; do not apologize, please. It's blogging stuff & it gets this way sometimes.
    We've got to learn to get along in this world, & the only way is to talk about it. Don't be to hard on nemo.

    If I were there I'd take us all out for a drink.

    j_g you are very sweet to follow me like a big sister. But, please don't forget these people are my friends.

  16. no one in this world is better, or superior than anyone. everyone is unique with their own capabilities. That makes the world a wonderful place.
    i am sorry l>t that i misunderstood your words and thought that you were talking about the comments on this post.
    Well, since the british regime,english became india's official language. India is now the 2nd largest english speaking country in the world.Thats why the students moved with placards written in english. another reason is for publicity via media. as english is the international language, their messege would reach the whole world.

    and medusa, YOU'VE GOT MAIL!

    "One Billion people.6 IIM’s, 7 IIT’s .Close to 200 seats in a typical IIM and 500 in a typical IIT.One group stands for senseless establishment of quotas. The other group senselessly opposes it. What is going on? Have we lost all our marbles? "
