Internet users? Sounds bizarre. It's stupid, right? I'm talking about the train, which is spreading like any other wires across the world. One world, one language. I repeat one world, one language you might be thinking. What's wrong with that? It would be much easier to communicate with all different people of the world, the world where language is no more barrier, right? But let me warn you, at first sight, the pictures looks nice. But when we think deeply, language counts many more things deep. We have one world. The idea off one world, one language. It is your identity, and your privacy is at stake. To understand it better let me take you back. Cody ready to the birth off very first language. How were people communicating? What was there Like three languages, the ancient tribes were using their hands facial expressions, some sort of science as a tool to communicate. And that was perfectly fine. That was enough for those drives to communicate the biblical story off the top off the Tower of Babel merits the same where the whole humanity certainly spoke a single language. That was exactly the situation off one world, one language up to here, and until here everything looks fine. But then, what makes the generation off the creation off? Second language. What was the need to create another language? How does the second language come into existence? It is because more than the medium of communication, language is also a powerful tool off identity and secrecy. For multiple reasons. When they when these tribes got separated by land, by habits or traditions, they were using their own language to establish their identity and to maintain the secrecy off their information and order. The Peterhof time, the dominant language, becomes so rich it goes so rich that at some point there were approximately 7000 languages spoken on this planet, moving fast forward. It is the colonization which brought twist in the story. English was spoken language in you dope with the German tripe, or the period of time. Through technological cultural influences and scientific influences, English become the world language. Every third person in the world speaks English. New generation uses English as a primary language to read and write on this growing mind set up. Using one single language is goingto end the heritage and very reason it's off the native languages. Okay, so how does it matters to us? What can we do about it? It matters to us because we are living in the Edo. Off technology were identity and privacy matters a lot. If you care about your identity and your privacy, you should worry about it. In the age of technology, the matter what matters is a data. What matters is your privacy's information that then then then the comes the language, the another importance. Another aspect of the language that is identity, that is, privacy off your information. In the age of technology, where data is the currency data analytics off English or other native languages, it's much, much easy for the machines. If you are one of those using English language were digital age or or digital world. You are the easy target, competitive beauties, much complex. It is quite complex to sense the exact context off the native languages for the machine. Netizens who are using English or social media are relatively easy to interpret on in return Influence. Influence to buy their products to use their service is Andi want to make them work for the specific candidates? We are witness to some of the greatest scandal off our time in the world of technology, off sailing and misusing or data. And that is exactly the scenario off using one single key for all the locks or setting the same password across multiple accounts. The monolingual world, The One World one language is a trait to our identity, privacy and secrecy off the information and in addition to the communication privacy, identity, Secrecy up in permission Language is an asset off valuable scientific and cultural values on believes and culture language in itself is the whole package off cultural heritage. The cave, yet up unseen, is that every after two weeks, one language dies. And if this scenario continues or half hope, the approximately 7000 languages spoken on this planet may disappear by the end of the century. And when language is gone, the culture of civilization is lost to the world. For me, matter of the fact is that more than the cave yet off unseen, it is the cave it off undone. Okay, so what? What we can do about it? This reminds me so the great Indian American entrepreneur, who beautifully said there are three types of people in the world. One the ignores those who see the problem and simply ignore it. Two. The blame er's those who see the problem on blame someone else for it. And three, the soldiers, those who see the problem and try fixing it. Rituals are what we to solve the problems to be the soldiers of the challenge exactly 20 years from now that in early 2000 we started an initiative called the Global Language Heritage. A mission to safeguard the linguistic diversity. A mission to preserve the language to preserve the native languages and dialects Using people and technology together, our linguist, domain experts and volunteers are busy documenting in permission and audio video and texts. Up to now, we have documented or two million words in 23 languages under 16 multiple dimensions. But preserving a language it just have done what matters the most is being understood and able to understand again, this reminds me to the payments Court off Mr Nelson Mandela, who once said, If you talk to a man in the language. He understands that goes to his head. But if you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart. Learning a new language helps people to communicate with other cultures, to get usedto other cultures helps people get to know other cultures on design, develop empathy and compassion. There comes or another project, the global language Networking The Digital Platform, which offers seamless and smooth projections and translations among 23 different languages. 450 million users across the world are using our re Babs for the translation for the acquisition off second language, making its world's number one resource for the references off Indian languages. It is one off the tower top ranking website for Indian languages. Anyone from any poorer part of the world can simply download our free APS from the play store and start communicating with no language barrier. All we know, big things start small once. It was my personal challenge to understand English has a language fulfill to achieve my dream of education because I was hardly exposed to English language. Beside one academic subject until age 14. Long story short a kind professor. Lend me his dictionary with then open a new window to the whole new world. For me all it begins with a few words and phrases and that small investment translated and transformed into a lifetime off interest, employment and opportunity. You anyone from any part of the world can join me us to become we the problem solver off the world. Let's join hands come together. You say the language heritage on to promote the multilingualism. Thank you.
