This photograph taken at the Darbhanga airport has sparked controversy regarding #HindiImposition

The now-viral shot was taken at Bihar’s Darbhanga airport.

The recent argument between actor Ajay Devgan and Kannada star Kiccha Sudeep on Hindi’s “national language” status has sparked debate regarding its imposition and India’s linguistic diversity.

An Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer’s seemingly benign photo taken at the Darbhanga airport fueled the same Twitter controversy.

Awanish Sharan, an IAS officer, uploaded a snapshot of a placard with multiple “misspelled” Hindi words on Saturday. The “misspelled” words were encased in a red box.

The image was of a Covid-19 awareness flyer printed in Devanagari script. It included information on the signs of Covid-19 infection as well as a list of dos and don’ts for preventing its spread.

The IAS officer captioned the photo “,” which loosely translates to “the plight of our Hindi,” when he shared it.

Many people agreed with Sharan that such errors at a major airport are upsetting. In contrast, others pointed out that the phrases were not misspelled because they were written exactly how Hindi is spoken in Bihar. A Twitter user echoed this sentiment, writing, “The way we pronounce, we write.”

Hindi, one of India’s 22 scheduled languages, is spoken in a variety of dialects throughout North India. As a result, some believe that there is no perfect or standardized style of writing or pronouncing Hindi.

Many users blamed “Google translate” for the poster’s errors in the comments, while others said the management did not proofread the material.

The DM stated that the land purchase issue has been given top priority and that every effort will be made to finish the process as soon as feasible.

Early this month, the state cabinet approved the expenditure of over 336 crores for the accession of 78 acres of land for the construction of a permanent terminal building for the civil enclave at Darbhanga airport. The acquired land will be given to the AAI “for free” in order to establish a permanent civil enclave at Darbhanga airport, which is under the jurisdiction of the Indian Air Force.
