Liveblogging from TEDx Mumbai

    Amit Varma‘s excellent live blogpost from TEDx…“96% of Indians speak 4% of languages, and 4% of Indians speak 96% of
languages.” At the time of independence, he says, the figure was 46%,
not 4%. This loss of languages is a loss of historical knowledge. “If a
democracy means respect for diversity,” he says, “then will a democracy
be able to exist by killing diversity? […] We are creating a graveyard
of mother tongues.”
