Democrat Party leadership has routinely disseminated accusations from anonymous sources, promoted them by a partisan media, and finally debunked them when the facts became apparent. Nevertheless, the truth had already been revealed by the time it became public. There had already been casualties. Paul Manafort was one of the most prominent casualties. Democratic leaders and Establishment allies worked together with foreign operatives in order to fabricate a completely false narrative about Paul’s supposed conspiracies with pro-Russ

How Did English Become World's Most Powerful Language?
Hello, friends! Have you ever wondered why English is such a popular language? Why are you expected to know English if you want to move ahead in your career? In today's article, come, let's try to find out. What is so special about English? That it became the most powerful language in the world. Why is it the Global Language? And which was the most powerful language in the world before English?

Role of the British Empire in the English Language

Looking back at history, the answer begins with the British Empire. The largest Empire in the world. The year was 1922 when this Empire was at its peak. It was occupying a large chunk of the world, larger than ever before. All the land on Earth, 25% of the area was under the control of the British Empire at this time. New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, the UAE, and many African countries were under British Empire's control.

In total, a population of 450 million people was under this British Empire. The British Empire was colonizing so many countries. And the people of the colonies, if they wanted to have a good career, if they wanted good jobs, then they had to learn the English language. That's why in the colonized countries, English was considered the 'Language of the Elite.' If you were educated and had a good job, then, of course, you'd know English.

But what happened when the hold of the British Empire started breaking away? By the 1950s, most of the colonies had gotten their independence. Or they had begun a strong independent movement. The British had to leave the country and had to give independence to these countries. One of these countries was India. Even after getting independent, in most of the colonies, English remained an official or the national language. Why? There were different reasons in different countries.

How Did English Become So Popular in India?

When India's Constitution was being drawn up, the Constituent Assembly discussed this in detail. Whether English should be used as an official language in India, or should Hindi be used only? Should Hindi be made into the national language? Many people favored Hindustani becoming the national language of the country. The language is a mix of Hindi and Urdu. But many people believed that English should continue as the official language. One of these people was Dr. BR Ambedkar. He believed that the best way to represent the Dalit community in the English language was the best option.

In fact, he believed that of all the communities in India the English language is the only language that's equidistant to all others. There isn't an added advantage to any community. He used the example that Brahmins would be at an advantage if Sankritised Hindi became the national language. Apart from him, many leaders from South India were also concerned about it. They believed that Hindi is a North Indian language and if it became the national language, then South India would feel underrepresented.

That's why it was decided that there'd be two official languages in India. Hindi and English. But at the same time, over the next 15 years, they would work to phase out English because, during the independence, English was also seen as the 'Language of the Coloniser.' Since it was the language spoken by the British, it shouldn't be promoted. It was said that by 1965, English would be completely phased out. Although, the Parliament was given the option that the Parliament could continue to use English.

In 1967, an 'Angrezi Hatao' (Remove English) movement was also launched. By a Socialist leader. That English should be completely phased out. But it wasn't done so. Because this movement had to phase a lot of resistance from the South Indian leaders. And obviously, their demand was also justified, they asked why Hindi should be the one chosen. Why not Tamil? And because of this reason, English is still an official language.

How Did English Become World's Most Powerful Language?

America's story is somewhat similar to this. The United States of America was colonized by many countries. Britain, France, Spain, and the Netherlands, but the major portion belonged to Britain. So when the USA got its independence from the Britishers, they realized the importance of having a national identity and that language plays a very important role. They decided that this language would be English. Which would unite the various States. You might be surprised to know this but at that time, many languages were spoken in the USA.

French, Spanish, Dutch, and German, but English was given priority. Priority to the extent that by the early 20th century, several States banned teaching foreign languages in schools. It was only in 1923, that the Supreme Court of the USA, struck down the private language education restrictions. The story that I told you till now, explains English being spoken in the countries colonized by Britain.

But what about the rest of the countries in the world? No one forced the other countries to use English. So how did English spread to the rest of the world? The answer to this is hidden in the last 50-70 years, friends. In World War II, the Allied countries defeated the Axis countries. Allied countries like Britain, America, and France, defeated countries like Germany, Japan, and Italy.

The first point is that in the countries that win a war of this scale, their culture dominates over the world. Since English was being spoken in Britain and the USA, it dominated the world.

The second important point is after the end of World War II, the USA was one of the only countries that didn't incur huge losses. The developed European countries were devastated. Their economic growth had crashed. But in America, a large economic boom was seen after the end of World War II.

After the 1950s, America came up as a superpower along with the Soviet Union. With the help of Capitalism, American businesses start to spread all around the world. The top business schools started teaching in English. English became the language for trade and business. The musical bands from America were releasing their works in English and started becoming popular worldwide.

Additionally, the same thing was seen with the filmmakers. Hollywood films and American television series became global sensations. America had the best technologies in all these aspects. But the reality of today is that after America and Britain's victory, English proved to be a powerful language.

The last, final, reason. How could English dominate even after the 1980s and 1990s? Leaving behind all other languages. The reason behind it is that the invention of the Internet occurred in America. The companies related to the internet that came up did so in America. But whether it is Google, Facebook, YouTube, or Apple, all these top technology companies, that rely heavily on the internet, were founded in America.

That's why today 63% of the websites on the Internet, have content in English. And obviously, the invention of computers and the invention of the keyboards, Keyboards, and typewriters were also invented by an American. So obviously, he did it in his language. English. So that's why initially the computers had English keyboards only. And so all these websites were developed in English.

It was only after the age of smartphones that websites in other languages started becoming more common. And through the touchscreens of smartphones, keyboards in other languages started being developed. Before smartphones, keyboards in other languages were very rare. So friends, because of all these reasons, today in 2022, English has become the most powerful, the most important, and the global language.
