Overtime stereotypes may go astray from the truth, but they’re not entirely baseless. Take for example, the idea that Russian is one of the most difficult languages to learn. This notion cannot be entirely dismissed because the Russian language is actually quite distinct with its alphabet system that clearly stands out, variety of rules for grammar and liberty of pronunciation
, which adds to the difficulty in learning.
It is known to be one of the top 10 business languages of the world, and is also the most spoken language in the vastly spread Eurasian region. Russian also finds its rightful place in the 6 official languages of the UN and the International Space Station - NASA. It is one of the three remaining East Slavic Languages, and is the official language not just of Russia but also, of Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan.
The cooperation between India and Russia could be traced back to the 90’s and since then, there have been consistent attempts to popularize the Russian language, here in India. The oldest centre for Russian studies was established in 1950 at JNU, Delhi. Currently, Russian is taught in more than 40 Indian institutions of higher education in Chennai, Pune, Mumbai, Kolkata, Thiruvanathapuram, Vadodara, etc. These and other places also have Russian Centre for Science and Culture (RCSC) where courses in this language are carried as per Russian state programs and textbooks. (Information sourced from www.interaffairs.ru) In addition, according to Russia & India Report of 2014, the Indian government said that it would spend Rs.1.2 crores on developing E-content for Russian studies.
The bilateral business relations between the two countries have given rise to new and more challenging job opportunities. Russian companies in India reflect the areas of mutual cooperation which include defence, military, oil and natural gas, pharmaceuticals, science and technology, manufacturing as well as cultural exchange etc. Professional Russian to English translation of documents for the above mentioned domains plays an essential role in creating and fostering business ties. In the same way, Russian interpreters help bridge the communication gap between two parties during meetings, conferences, trainings, etc. It is evident that this language serves as an able means to strengthen and explore various business and cultural opportunities in both countries.
