> There is a widespread anxiety over decline in natural languages. However,
> the anxiety is not matched by adequate information on the living languages.
> Over the last fifty years, Indian citizens have not been receiving full
> information on the language scene in the country. As a result, we neither
> know as to how many languages we have, nor how many of those have come
> close to extinction. This lecture will reflect on some of the perceptions
> arising out of this situation of uncertain information and will attempt to
> present a language map of India. It will describe the nature of 'aphasia '
> imposed on some of the languages and the dangers of such a situation.
