Language makes us human. When our ancestors invented language more than fifty thousand years ago, they forever sealed our fate on earth. They set mankind on a path of constant growth and development making us the most powerful species on earth.

Indeed. The power of words is extraordinary.

Words can inspire, words can demoralize.
Words can strengthen, words can damage.
Words can nurture, words can destroy.
Words can cheere, words can condemn.
Words can win peace, words can make wars.

As screenwriter-lyricist Divy Nidhi Sharma aptly writes:

शब्द हैं… अतरंगी, कुछ सतरंगी से… 
शब्द हैं... गुनगुनाते गीत गाते 
कुछ मस्त हैं, कुछ त्रस्त हैं, होठों पे करते गश्त हैं...
कुछ झूठ हैं, कुछ सत्य हैं, जादू भरे ये शब्द हैं!

Words are... many colored, some with the seven hues of the rainbow
Words are... humming, singing
Some merry, some distressed... swaying on the lips
Some false, some true... Words are full of MAGIC!

She then goes on to say…

जन्म से लेकर मरण तलक
सब खेल-तमाशा शब्द हैं! 
From birth until death
Life is a theater of WORDS!

Isn’t it?

  1. शब्द में अर्थ बोध करने की शक्ति होती है । एक शब्द सबके लिए अपना अर्थ लेकर आटा है ।
