British Lingua, a pioneer in training and developing English communication skill, is organizing the seminar on ‘Role of Communication in Democracy’. The scholarly discussion aims at gathering broader views on the subject and widening students’/learners’ perspective, provoking their thinking and enriching their knowledge.
As you know, the success of democracy in any country hinges on how communicative its people are. Even if the government of the day is run by their representatives who are accountable to them, people have to raise voices whenever they feel that they are being excluded or sidelined from resources. People especially from marginalized sections must have their voices heard and be able to participate in decisions that affect their lives. And for this to succeed, they must have a certain degree of spoken skill in the language most widely used and understood.
In a multilingual country like ours, English is a link language; it is India’s court language and without its knowledge we can’t hope for getting justice from even the highest court. Efficiency in English communication not only helps in enhancing employability but also makes us aware of our rights, which are enshrined in our constitution that works as a watchdog for a smooth running of democracy. It is the communication process, the ensuing dialogue between people and their governments that shape the public agendas.
Dr Birbal Jha, an eminent author and British Lingua MD, has been taking English Language Skills across the country with a special focus on Communicative English. A recognized public speaker himself, Dr Jha will address the seminar in quite informal way and enlighten you with finer points about the urgency to have command over communication in English.
