Abstract: The status of women in India has been subject to many great changes over the past few millennia. From equal status with men in ancient times through the low points of the medieval period, to the promotion of equal rights by many reformers, the history of women in India has been eventful. In modern India, women have held high offices in India including that of the President, Prime Minister, Speaker of the Lok Sabha and Leader of the Opposition. As of 2011, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha (Lower House of the parliament) were women.

Title : Should creoles be made official languages and / or media of instruction in countries where they are the first language of the majority of the population
Country : India
Authors : Payal Kushal Shah-Sanghavi

Abstract: More than 75 million people speak pidgin and creole languages, but a vast majority of their speakers acquire literacy in another language – usually the language of a former colonial power (Siegel, 2005). Sebba (1997, p. 233) calls pidgins and creoles as "developing" with the emphasis on their potentiality to fulfill the same function as any other "developed" language, like English or French. He argues that they do have a potential to develop. In spite of the negative attitudes towards these developing languages from their own speakers, creoles can go up to the level of any other official languages. Attitudes towards pidgins and creoles and the problems that the creole speakers face and the role of linguistic and political power involved in making creoles official languages and medium of instructions in their countries are the major issues to focus on.
