The mother tongue is part of a child&rsquos personal, social and cultural identity. It is this identity we get from speaking our mother tongue that enforces successful social patterns of acting and speaking, and make us unique and appealing in society. It is an indispensable instrument for development of intellectual and moral aspects of education. Habits, conducts, values, virtues, customs and beliefs are all shaped through mother tongue. Needless to say, weakness in the mother tongue means a paralysis of all thought and power of expression. Mother Tongue is a common language that is freely and comfortably spoken by adult generation both at home and outside to their successors in a community and reflect one&rsquos culture and ethnic backgrounds. Encouraging young children to learn ODIA language would help them to develop confidence, self-esteem and their unique identity within a multicultural society. In this context, learning their mother tongue assumes greater importance for the Pravasi Odias. . In its bid to impart our language to Pravasi Odias living in and around Delhi, THE INTELLECTS is on a missionary zeal. It has started its mission called &ldquoASA SIKHIBA AMARI BHASHA&rdquo in National Capital region.
