The notion presented in this lecture helped us in understanding the interconnection between the region's diverse literary landscape and a myriad of cultural identities on a social, political, and economic level. Language plays a significant role in our society since it preconditions our notion of the universe. Through language and culture, we recognise our place in the world. By the end of her talk, Dr Deepshikha highlighted the importance of mother tongue to mental health and how the presence of mother tongue evokes a feeling of home even when one is miles away from home.
