Members, this is where you all can contribute...
BrassTacks has launched a new project to revive and reclaim our beloved urdu.. which is being systematically destroyed. If Urdu dies, our soul would also die with it.. ! A 800 years old treasure of the Ummah must be jealously guarded.
Languages are like plants.. they need tender loving care to grow and expand.. ! otherwise, they dry out, begin to die...
The project aims are creating new cool vocabulary for English terms that we use in normal life.. ! today, all our terms of even basic professions are in English. It is painful to see Paint and Hardware store, carpenter shop, plumber dastyab hai, electrician, hospital, doctor, engineer, plant nursery.. etc etc....
Now we will create an Urdu dictionary of modern terms.. and you all can start to use them and add them into Urdu language. We will use these terms now in our future papers inshAllah..
Its a long project..we will keep posting Jpegs as they are made.. spread them to schools, media and on net.
Urdu is a Turkish word... and urdu has words from 3 major Muslims languages .. Arabic, Turkish and Persian. Instead of using English terms, we can adopt terms from parent languages of Urdu or we make our own terms.. !
Do you know that Tipu Sultan also spoke Urdu ?? this fascinating language was started by Hazrat Nizam ud Din Aulia and Hazrat Ameer Khusro made its structure 800 years ago..
You can all send us recommended Urdu words for English terms and our editorial board would vet them inshAllah..
Lets do it.... together.. !
