Quote by Wiki
The Bengali Language Movement, also known as the Language Movement (Bengali: ভাষা আন্দোলন; Bhasha Andolon), was a political movement in former East Bengal (today Bangladesh) advocating the recognition of the Bengali language as an official language of the then-Dominion of Pakistan in order to allow its use in government affairs, the continuation of its use as a medium of education, its use in media, currency and stamps, and to maintain its writing in the Bengali script.

When the Dominion of Pakistan was formed by the partition of India in 1947, it was composed of various ethnic and linguistic groups, with the geographically non-contiguous East Bengal province (that was renamed in 1956 as East Pakistan) having a mainly Bengali population. In 1948, the Government of the Dominion of Pakistan ordained Urdu as the sole national language, sparking extensive protests among the Bengali-speaking majority of East Bengal. Facing rising sectarian tensions and mass discontent with the new law, the government outlawed public meetings and rallies. The students of the University of Dhaka and other political activists defied the law and organised a protest on 21 February 1952. The movement reached its climax when police killed student demonstrators on that day. The deaths provoked widespread civil unrest led by the Awami Muslim League, later renamed the Awami League. After years of conflict, the central government relented and granted official status to the Bengali language in 1956. In 1999, UNESCO declared 21 February as International Mother Language Day, in tribute to the Language Movement and the ethno-linguistic rights of people around the world.

Nice! amar ma baba Washington, DC e thake - ami ekla thaki. amar janomo America te chilo - amra dui-jon e beedesi haha

I have some Bengali family friends who lived in Sweden for quite a while! Actually one of them just married an old friend from Sweden who ended up moving to the DC area afterward. I'm married now (not legally, but we had the nikah) to a white guy and it's funny bringing him to house parties with my family and stuff; all the aunties have a crush on him because he looks kind of like a 70's era Bollywood star with his mustache/tan skin.

Oh really? Do you happen to know where in Sweden they live? Chances are someone in my family might know them.
Haha, congratulations on your nikah, and to your friend. It's always fun to see my culture existing elsewhere.

Sup i suppose I should say something in Tamil but I can't speak it much less type it out without saying something stupid. I can understand it fully though woo. Been trying to learn it properly for ages but it's so difficult because of this (ignoring the characters and all)

English: the cat is wearing a red shirt
Official Google translate Tamil: punai oru civappu cattai anintu
What everyone I know says: pune ura cevpu chatta pothintuthu

English: I like eating tomatoes a lot
Official: Nan mikavum takkali cappita pitikattu
Normal: Naa takkali capadu romba pudikum

so basically learning 2 languages at the same time. Apparently the grammar is horrendously complicated too, both of my parents failed all their Tamil exams in school even though they grew up in India lol

Blir man ikke bann'a om man skriver på fremmedspråk her uten å oversette sånn at amerikanerne kan forstå hva vi skriver?

Og hvorfor i helvete er det så mange svensker her?

Regner med at det er fordi Gropen er fylt med lettere tilbakestående mennesker.
(Ikke at noen av svenskene er blant dem så vidt jeg vet. >__> )

Teknisk sett har man bannlysningsgrunnlag for å skrive fremmedmål for engelskmennene, men moderatorene her er jo ikke så strenge.

Edit: That felt fucking weird. Can English be my mother language, please?

Actually what I copied up there from Google Translate is 100% correct, but it's the form that's taught in schools/used in print media/on the news etc, hence "official" Tamil. The one I copied below is considered less correct but that's my family speaks so that's all I know. There are also many variations based on combinations of caste and region and social class soooo I really only have a very basic understanding of people outside my family are talking about :/ Then there's also literary Tamil which is sort of the equivalent of Latin and I have absolutely no hope of ever understanding it before I learn everything else lol

Know dat feel bro. Det er nesten 3 år siden jeg har hatt bruk for bokmål; no skriv æ ferr det mæste på dialækt... eller på engelsk (og bittelitt på tysk -- for det meste youtube kommentarer )

For min del er bokmål egentlig vanskeligere enn engelsk... kanskje derfor jeg fikk 3 på hovedmåleksamen (men jeg presterte å få en femmer på sidemål... ),3

Google translate usually outputs lingual garbage when I try using it...

Det är å andra sidan helt sant. Vi gör hellre fel än att integrera med någon annan, det är typ normen här borta. Kanske därför förklarar varför alla mina vänner bor utanför Stockholm.
Ah, nice. Hur är livet i Götet då?
