International Mother Language Day

In East Pakistan a revolt in 1952 about the use of the Bangla language was the first step towards independence of Bangladesh. Februari 21 was proclaimed International Mother Language Day by UNESCO in 1999.

For every person his or her mother language is special; it is the language they learn most easily in. It is the last language they will know when they become senile. Research has shown that learning to read and write in the mother tongue has a positive influence for the whole of a person's academic career.

It is fitting that the localisation of the Mobile MediaWiki was done today for the Bangla language by Bellayet.
