Families must converse in their own regional language at home. Language and emotions move together better when conversed in the mother tongue. I was educated in the regional medium and I am very proud of it and I feel one should respect – Mother who has given you birth, Motherland – place where you are born, Mother tongue, the country to which you belong to.
