I would like to share some of my experiences of working with both students and teachers; trying to convey some basic concepts in Science. And this write-up is mainly about the kind of language we use to teach Science. I am sure the same problems will crop up when it comes to teaching Maths and Social Science too, but I cannot speak about them from first-hand experience. And specifically, this write-up is about the use of Hindi because my work has been in Hindi-speaking areas. Probably similar problems are being discussed across India, but once again, what I have to share concerns the use or misuse of Hindi.
