Hi,
A humble request from a fellow CD. As many of you might not be aware, a good amount of people from India are not familiar with Hindi.
Though I am OK with Hindi (a slow reader but a good listener), still I find it hard to understand if some regional style of Hindi is used.
Why I lose is, I am not able to get some nice posts due to language barrier.
Would appreciate if we all make our future posts in English.

I can understand it is impossbile to avert certain quoted comments in Hindi to prevent the real feeling it should bring, I think that is OK.

No offence.

- JRF.

Except one particular member who uses broken English and Hindi (though probably knows both of the languages very well), I have not seen that many posts in Hindi.

Do you have some links as example?

Raj,

I think I didn't observe whether the posts are from the same Member or from different. Yep, that makes sense.
And atmost 98% of posts are in English..

As its a public forum, if such posts are observed, we could request the member to post it in English....


Rgds,
JRF.

I understand your view.

This is my take on it. If the post is written in other language than the content is not serious. The user posted it for fun. Quite often people of same first language post stuff for networking. On serious issues we should have everything in English.

I request board members to note this point.

Thanks.
