“HINGLISH” – 1 of the most spoken languages in India

You must be thinking what does ‘Hinglish’ mean, right? Well, Hinglish is when we combine English and Hindi both.

Yes, most of the times it happens that we don’t even realize when we combine both languages and we speak. Knowingly or unknowingly, we use the Hinglish language whether in our professional lives or our routine life.

It was in 1967 when the term Hindi+English first came out. In Hinglish, we just do not use Hindi but we mix English words with Punjabi, Gujarati and Marathi. Hinglish is also used to refer to Hindi language that is written in English script and it is mixed with English words with phrases.

Nowadays, we widely use the Hinglish language in almost every social media platforms including Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Twitter. People feel more comfortable to speak when the use Hinglish while having a conversation. The challenge is for the ones who do not know how to speak English entirely, or the ones who are not so confident that they will deliver the required message. India is the second-largest population in the world to speak English.

With many Indians being bilingual or trilingual, it becomes difficult for them to speak in their mother tongue and this where English language comes into picture. We speak in our mother tongues while we are at home and we speak in English while we are in schools. If you live in a state that does not speak in Hindi, then it is important to learn that language to communicate with the people.

India is a country where the industrial as well as information revolution is taking place at the same time due to which families are migrating to urban areas to have a better lifestyle and to get much better job opportunities. Since English is a very common language, and there are many languages spoken in India, mostly people tend to speak that language only.

Apart from this, Bollywood has supported the trend and has also played a vital role in boosting the Hinglish language. Many mainstream Bollywood movies contain the title of the movie as well as the dialogue in Hinglish: “Love Aaj Kal” and “Badmaash Company” have used Hinglish language and as far as the films are concerned, they has earned decently well.
