The 46th Assam Rifles posted at Aizawl, in collaboration with the apex student body of the state have set up advanced language lab to teach Hindi to the locals.
More than hundreds of students have already enrolled at the Assam Rifles language clinic at the para-military’s vicinity in Aizawl. Hindi classes, which mainly thrive on spoken Hindi are being held daily. The Assam Rifles has issued a public notice that anyone interested could join the free Hindi classes.
The local collaborators, the Mizo Zirlai Pawl, or the MZP is the apex student body of the state. The MZP has urged the Assam Rifles officers to organise such a programme in view of the state’s backwardness in Hindi.
“Hindi, especially spoken Hindi has become a necessity not only in India, but also in Mizoram. Students are weak in Hindi and those educated venturing out of the state face difficulties in communication. The Assam Rifles has willingly given their resources to impart training on Hindi to the people of Mizoram,” H Lalthianghlima, Asst. Secretary of the MZP said.
The MZP said because of spoken Hindi many Mizo youths miss many job opportunities. They are optimistic that this venture would break the barrier. Moreover the student body observes lack of communication has hampered integration.
The Hindi Classes are open to anyone interested and are being organised free of cost.
