India has been a land of diversity in which many languages are spoken in various parts of the country. In 1956, the Indian states were reorganised on the basis of language. It was realised that imposing any one language over the entire country may affect the peace and unity of the country. Our government had the example of Pakistan before it where its government had imposed Urdu on the Bengali speaking people of East Pakistan (present Bangladesh).

Various discussions and debates were held by the Government regarding the selection of the official language of India in the Constituent Assembly. While many states wanted Hindi to become the official language of the country, many other states were against the imposition of Hindi over them. A compromise was thus arrived by which it was agreed that while Hindi would be the "official language" of India, English would continued to be used in all the government departments and court orders.
