Language and Cultural Diversity : The Writings of Delhi Prasanna Pattanayak by Debi Prasanna Pattanayak brings together for the first time the collected works of this eminent Indian linguist and humanist in a career spanning over forty years, Debi Prasanna Pattanayak has engaged with language policies in India. All of his writings revolve around social justice, whether in education, language, socio-economic and political issues of the marginalised. His, is probably the lone voice advocating multilinguality in globalised world that clamours for oneness and monolingualism. He has time and again reminded us a about our strength as a culturally diverse and multilingual nation. He was perhaps the first among his generation of scholars to challenge western perspectives on languages and talk about indigeneity and contextualisation of languages and show through his writings that many languages can and do co-exist peacefully. Though critical of western perspectives on language, his all encompassing humanity does not shut any language or world view out.
