“A rough and ready type of Hindustani is used by the working masses all over India…Today in this bazaari Hindustani the word university becomes univrasti–a much better word than vishwavidyalaya, lantern becomes laltain, the chassis of a car becomes chesi, spanner becomes pana, ie anything and everything is possible… This Hindustani has untold and unlimited possibilities. It can absorb the international scientific and technological vocabulary with the greatest of ease. It can take words from every source and enrich itself. One has no need to run only to the Sanskrit dictionary.” — #BalrajSahni.
