किसी भी subject पर यदि पूरी तरह से आपकी command हो तो आप उस पर research कर सकते है यह तभी संभव है जब हम subject को अपनी मात्रभाषा में पढ़ें क्यूकि उसमे कम समय में ज्यादा समझ में आता है चाहे वो हिंदी हो मराठी हो तमिल हो तेलगु हो या बंगला
हमे कोशिश करनी चाहिए कि हमारे बच्चे भी अपनी मात्रभाषा में पढ़ें जिससे उन पर कम से कम दबाब रहे और स्वच्छंद हो कर पढ़े
