In an age of multilingualism, we are still stuck with this predominant notion that only English Language is a worthy medium of instruction- a one stop MEDIUM to become street-smart, fluent & be acceptable in a High class society.
Students passing out from an English Medium school gets a puffed-up machismo to be confident and privileged over Bengali medium students, many of whom struggle, stutter and stumble upon in public speaking situations or get fearful while appearing in job interviews or may be hinder to open up their hearts to the other half.
How do we then BREAK this barrier? How do we prove that Knowledge is Everything? That Language is only a medium to enrich oneself and what matters to being TRULY WORTHY is nothing but Knowledge?
Here comes Star Jalsha’s New Fiction Show- BANGLA MEDIUM
