India is a land of many languages and cultures. Most Indians know, read, write and speak more than one language or dialect. Their native language or mother toungue represents their core values, pride and culture and connects them sentimentally to their roots.

Although Indians talk to their colleagues in professionally acceptable languages, mostly English, but when they talk to their family they do so in their mother tongue.

India is going through the “age of technology” which means that we are now in the process of being well acquainted with technology in a way that it has become an integral part of our lives. But with so many languages or dialects being used for communication around us, it is very difficult to accomodate everything into tools that connect us with technology.

The Indian government along with the help of various intitutions has devised applications and softwares that help people use or convert languages into one of their own understanding. One such software known as “Devnagri” is a unique platform which lets the users translate written text into their own native languages with the ease of technology.

Another initiative towards a more technologically amalgamate nation is that of big multinational mobile and cellular companies who have taken the acknowledgement of being in a lingually diverse country and have taken a multipronged approach to make everybody feel just as inclusive with the right use of technology.

From elders to children, everybody can use their mobiles in a language which they understand better without any difficulty.
