Patricia Ryan: Don't insist on English

I wholeheartedly agree with Ms Ryan. No language, and especially not one's own, should be pushed aside for the sake of the lingua franca. There is so much beauty and depth in our local languages, and yet so much stigma attached to their use in intellectual discourse. We all know why. The question is: What are we doing about it?

Gratitude to my friend Doni for sharing.
