Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University permits students to write exams in Hinglish
The students of Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University (MPMSU) have been permitted to write their examination in Hinglish - a mixture of Hindi and English words. In other words, Hindi and English language words will be treated as synonyms. Also, Hinglish has allowed in viva-voce or oral examination.

It is said that the board of studies of MPMSU took the decision for use of Hinglish for writing the MBSS degree examination and a circular has been issued in this regard. It is being held, use of Hinglish will be helpful to rural Hindi medium students seeking admission in the courses of medical science. An illustrative example that has been given is that 'hart ka daura' could substitute 'heart attack' in communication.

One may be surprised to know that the Portsmouth College of UK, with six years of research, has developed a course in Hinglish to be taught at A-level of education for the students who wish to later go to India and work there. The teachers of Indian origin working there have helped in the development of the course. The English words used in Hindi films and spoken by the characters have been used to build the vocabulary of Hinglish. Some dictionaries of Hinglish have become available on the internet, an earlier news story had informed.

Many linguists now believe that there is a need for every language to become enriched and dynamic by absorbing the words of other languages. It has been seen that languages that become static in the name of maintaining 'purity' soon die such as Sanskrit, Greek and Latin.

I think, with English being taught from class-I and current shift toward digitization along with branded products reaching the rural areas, a good number of English words have become the part of daily conversation of adults universally and a part of social learning of kids. One may not be surprised that Hinglish could become the medium of instruction in another 5 to 10 years.
