The Largest Indian Mobile Phone Company Micromax is all set to launch the Range of Mobile Handsets equipped with Indian regional language support. In this move the company have recently tied-up with the Panini Hindi Keyboard developers.
After introducing better hindi and regional languages support by mobile phone manufacturers it's becoming easier to use the latest technology in our own language. But more development is needed in this way to make cellphones more user-friendly from the language point of view.
Other mobile phone giants Nokia, LG, Samsung, HTC have also launched range of mobile Handsets to cover-up the demand of reginal language mobile phone users. Now a large range of unicode-hindi supporting mobile phones are available in market.
But Keypad development for hindi and other language is also a chalange.
This is a good initiative from micromax for developing and supporting hindi and regional language mobile phones for Indian market. According to sources Panini will be available in virtual keypad form in the micromax cellphones. Internet-user in Hindi might have known this keyboard as the easiest and the best user-friendly keyboard. Now using this feature on mobile phone will be a worth experience.
Aspiring to be a civil servant? but language is a hurdle so there is a good news for you. In the year 2010 one of the aspirant in UPSC exam filed a Public Interest Litigation before the High Court of Mumbai questioning the current model of main examination and Interview. It was objected in the petition that a candidate is bound to opt the language for the Interview what he/she have selected for mains.
Now after the decision of Mumbai high-court in favour of the petitioner the UPSC has announced to adopt a new model in which a candidate appearing for the Viva can opt same language or any language other than written examination. But the language should be opted from the list of the language mentioned in eight schedule of the Indian Constitution.
After the above decision an expert-committee has been constituted by UPSC and according to its recommendations the forms for the mains(written) exam are being prepared for the year 2010.
Till now English was the compulsory language for the personality test(Interview). But now if aspirants are writing their exam in english can opt any language including Hindi for their Interview.
Recently UPSC has adapted the new pattern of exam calling Civil Services Aptitude Test(CSAT). Now there are only two exams- one for General Knowledge and second for Aptitude test.
The new move of the UPSC is also helpful for a large section of the aspirants including the aspirants appearing from Hindi Medium.
