In Which Language are Govt. documents written?

edited April 2013 in Social, Tips & Support
Even Latin and Greek would be better than this, atleast after learning the language you are sure what someone means. But when govt. policy documents are written. My God! You just cant understand what exactly they mean. The language is so .....i dont have the word...but its like you are seduced irresistibly by someone ugly...ya!its odd but its like that....you keep on reading you like it but you know you aren't getting it but still you keep on reading and reading. you know it doesn't mean much in real life but the way, the style with which it is written is bewitching as if the writer is the most intelligent person on the earth...
Am I the only one or does someone else also feel the same?

    Sample this, Rural Ministry describes itself
    "Being the nodal Ministry for most of the development and welfare activities in the rural areas, the Ministry of Rural Development plays a pivotal role in the overall development strategy of the country.(what else can rural development ministry mean?) The vision and mission of the Ministry is sustainable and inclusive growth of rural India through a multi-pronged strategy for eradication of poverty by increasing livelihoods opportunities, providing social safety net and developing infrastructure for growth. (I am not so literate to understand the difference between vision and mission. Do I care much whether strategy is laser-like or multi-pronged? how much diffferent is 'increasing livelihoods opportunities', 'providing social safety net' and 'developing infrastructure for growth.')This is expected to improve quality of life in rural India and to correct the developmental imbalances, aiming in the process, to reach out to most disadvantaged sections of the society.(Oh! I cnt take it anymore)"

  • Hello, sustainable and inclusive growth, we meet again. :p

    @AK_CS, it's because white-papers are usually full of fillers. But no worries, there'll be a time when we not only get to know the language, but also will be contributing in encoding similar write-ups.

    its known as mental slavery..,
    1500 years se gulaam hain,
    so swabhimaan kahan se aaye,
    ab to humare dna mein v mental slavery aa chuki hai,
    ab to yeh humare rag rag mein bah rahi hai..

    कि कोशिश से ही मिलेगा !!

    aapka dhanyawad hamari gulami ka ehsaas dilane ke liye, Ham aasha jatate hai ki yeh gulami khatam hoga aur issi pidi mein karenge paranthu angrezi ke hatane se thodi khatam hoga. Ye soch, vichardhara aur svabhav ka pratirup hai jo iss samaj mein hain.

    iss avlakshan ka jad angrezi patyakram mein adyayan nahi hai.
