    National Highways Authority issued a notice in Hindi and English about the expansion of a national highway in Gujarat. Farmers of Junagadh and Rajkot filed a lawsuit and the Gujarat High Court ruled that the notice is null and void because it was in Hindi and English only. The court said, "The language used by the petitioners in this area is Gujarati, and Hindi language used in the notification is a foreign language for them. The normal spoken language in the region is Gujarati and not Hindi. Similarly, government imparts education in primary school level in Gujarati." (This news appeared in some major Indian newspapers on and around January 1, 2012.)

    Good to know that Indian courts are fair & show no bias in dealing with linguistic issues !

    Everyone should be grateful to mother India for having such impartial judiciary in place.

    Mera Bharat Mahaan !

    Going smoothly.

    By the way, I don't like the Dravidian identity. It is as unnatiral as the ****** identity. I am a Tamil.

    Indian gov prohibits the use use of any language other than Hindi or English in high courts. Tamil Nadu advocates even went on a one day token fast that HC allow Tamil also in Tamil nadu HC.
