Thanks for sharing the news article link cited in Wiki. I think by saying "a majority of people have accepted Hindi as a national language and many speak Hindi and write in Devanagari script", the Honorable High Court has rather accepted that while Hindi may not be dejure a National Language but defacto it is the one, given the scale of its usage. My question to +Google India was based on the same accepted reality.

However, I do have a question for you. By "for official, business and legal reasons" do you mean that any business like +Google India in India is legally bound to carry a disclaimer or an obligatory 'apology' whenever it writes a public statement in Hindi, which is "one of the official language"? If yes then why don't they also apologize whenever they write in English, another "one of the official language"? Kindly cite the exact law that obligates +Google India to issue an apology for the "legal reason" whenever it chooses to write in one language over the other.

Abhishek, take it easy. No one was trying to promote any regional language. Nevertheless, I don't think there is any law that bars anyone from promoting any language. If there is then please cite the exact law. It was an innocuous question to +Google India because I find it absurd that they are apologizing for using Hindi (the fourth most spoken language in the World. Now, this is called promotion). May be they did it lest they are accused of "promoting any regional language" by non-Hindi speaking chauvinists. On the contrary, it was rather a perfect opportunity for +Google to write the message in Devanagari Hindi and promote its Google Translate service. Missed opportunity. :-)
