Associate Editor of The Hindu gets schooled after he cries ‘Hindi imposition’ over ISRO mission names, Gaganyaan and Chandrayaan

Cow-belt is the region of India spread over Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh which is largely rural and animal husbandry is a very common profession.

The associate editor of The Hindu, Narayan Lakshman, took to Twitter to scrutinize how the names associated with the ISRO mission, Gaganyaan and Chandrayaan are named in Hindi. He cries about how Hindi is being forcefully imposed outside the ‘cow belt’ by the Modi-led government.

However, netizens responded promptly to this moral science lecture and tried to knock basic sense into The Hindu associate editor, which he clearly seems to be deprived of.

Twitter user Vinaya Pai briefed the editor that these words ‘Gaganyaan’ and Chandrayaan’ are actually derived from Sanskrit, a language of ancient India with a 3,500-year history which is also the oldest known languages in the world. She advised the journalist to ‘ditch this sectarianism’.

Other Twitter users also pointed it out to him that even outside of ‘cow belt’, these are commonly used terms.

People were also surprised at The Hindu Associate Editor’s attempt to divide Indians by forcefully trying to fit the ‘Hindi imposition’ narrative.
