In Bangladesh, February is considered a very significant month and a reminder of the day when the Bengalis were killed while demanding Bangla as the National Language. In this eventful month in Bangladesh our topic for Hello Washington on this first day of February is on the recent changes in Bangla Language: Is it Accurate & Acceptable
The guests were Prof Jyotirmoy Ghosh from the University of Calcutta and Dr Ghulam Murshid , a well known scholar of Bangla language and literature now in London . Both Prof Ghosh and Dr Murshid while agreeing the basic points about the natural flow of a language which behaves like a living river emphasized on the proportion between the acceptability and the accuracy of a language. Dr Ghulam Murshid , however, warned about the political motives behind overt changes in language.
