Destiny

Presently in this advanced world, English language is the main and important way of communication between us. Not only in the private sector but also in Govt. Office English language is mostly in use.But in West Bengal English language is not popular in communication. Due to this we become backward from this advanced world. The reason behind this is only our education system, which is mainly based on Bengali language, as it’s our mother tongue.
We respect our mother tongue, but it doesn’t mean that we don't need the English language. In various Anganwadi schools where mid day meals are regular, English language is most probably nil. Guardians also suggest teaching the subject in Bengali rather than English.
It makes a distance between the student and the English language from the toddler age itself. Due to this distance the enthusiasm towards the English language gradually falls down and students get fearful of the English language.
For this, people find their destination is doing works like, Barbary, cobbler etc. Though they are all graduates and some illiterates do God business and of course beggar. And most of the girls find their destination in doing marriage, so that they become secure behind their husband.
Therefore, to create a brighter destination, parents have to groom their children from the very beginning of their life as from toddler towards the English language so that children could make their destination updated similar to the present world.
