*New Delhi: *Language is very important for any society and the country,
and the New Education Policy which is being formulated will give Hindi its
due importance, Union Minister of State for HRD, Satya Pal Singh, said on
Saturday.

"When the education policy came in 1835, Lord Macaulay had said that
India's people will remain Indians in their looks and blood but their
thinking will be British. Whenever we escalate talks about working for the
mother tongue, things don't move forward," he said here while addressing
the gathering at an award function at the All India Council of Technical
Education (AICTE).

"Who were the leaders in the country who did not let Hindi get its
importance? Soon, a new education policy is coming. It is very unfortunate
that people think low of themselves if they don't know English. Like you
can't change your mother, you can't change your language also," he said.

During the event, awards were presented to the authors of best books in
technical education published in Hindi.
