Description
Foreword

National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language is an autonomous organization under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India responsible for promotion of Urdu language. The objectives of the Council are: (1) to promote, develop and propagate Urdu language, (2) to take action for making available in Urdu language the knowledge of scientific and technological development as well as knowledge of ideas evolved in the modem context, (3) to advise the Government of India on issues connected with Urdu language and having bearing on education as may be referred to it and (4) to undertake any other activity for the promotion of Urdu language as may be deemed fit by the Council. The Council is also responsible for providing inputs to Urdu medium education so as there is qualitative improvement in this medium and it conforms to the national standards and objectives.

Urdu is one of the national languages of India included in the VIIIth Schedule of our Constitution and is spoken throughout the country. Large number of our countrymen speak Urdu, but do not know the script. This book by Prof. Gopi Chand Narang, it is hoped, will serve as a beginner’s manual for learning one of the most beautiful Indian scripts - Urdu.

 

Preface

This beginner’s Manual for Urdu Script is meant for those who are conversant with spoken Urdu or Hindi, and want to learn Urdu script in the shortest possible time. It is written i n the Distance Education mode and everything is self- explanatory. The concepts are introduced gradually, and the characters, words and sentences have been repeated sufficiently so that they are well engrained in the mind of the learner. The Manual is accompanied by a Work Book where things are further explained. The learner must proceed lesson by lesson, and must complete the related exercises in the Work Book. The Work Book contains sufficient reading and writing exercises, which, if followed properly, will render the learning of Urdu script easy and enjoyable.

The Urdu script has been introduced in a graded and scientific manner. The learner who wants to learn Urdu alphabet in the traditional order is welcome to do so. A complete chart of the Urdu alphabet in the traditional order is also provided. However, the lessons introduce the Urdu alphabet gradually and systematically. The Urdu letters are of two types, connectors and non-connectors. The lessons first introduce the non-connectors which are easy to learn. Similarly, combinations which are simple and easy are introduced in the beginning. The connectors and concepts which are comparatively difficult have been taken up later. The learner, if he moves step by step according to the order of lessons, and follows instructions while completing the reading and writing exercises in the Work Book, will not feel any difficulty. Care has been taken to teach the Urdu alphabet through names of objects which are illustrated to make the learning less cumbersome and pleasant.

A short introduction to Urdu script is provided in the beginning. The learner is advised to go through it before / beginning the book. Of course, the concepts will become fully clear only after the learner has completed all the lessons and all the exercises. The script, in fact, is introduced in the first 12 lessons. Thus, those learners who may master one! lesson each week can learn the Urdu script in a period of three months. However, motivation and learning ability plays a major role in the learning process. The learner is advised to practice writing as much as possible, as nothing reinforces reading more than the writing.

In the Manual new characters and combinations are shown in red boxes. They are drilled enough so that by the end of each lesson the learner can easily recognise and read the new elements. At the end of the lessons a complete chart of the new characters and combinations is again given in red boxes for reinforcement.

The names of the Urdu letters are given at the top of the box while the transcription of the sound is given below. Urdu is rich in duplicators and triplicators, i.e., where some letters stand for one sound. A complete chart of Urdu alphabet denoting the sounds is also given for reference. Complete tables of vowel system and diacritics, traditional 6rder of sequences, as well as the table of different shapes of Urdu letters and their combinations are also provided. All this will be of use and will help the process of systematic learning.

The Work Book uses turquoise boxes for exercises and for filling the responses. To facilitate the learning process of writing Urdu characters, the direction and movement of hand is indicated by small arrows. New words and sentences are also given in the dotted (broken) format so that the learner may write over them in pencil, practising sufficiently to perfect his writing.

The Urdu text has been adopted from the Urdu Ki Nai Kitab- I prepared by me and published by the National Council for Educational Research and Training, New Delhi, which is widely used in many school systems in India. I wish to give my thanks to the Director, NCPUL, Dr. M. Hamidullah Bhat, and to my fellow Committee Members, without whose co-operation and help the present project would not have been completed in time.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
