Every year several languages die out. Some people think that this not important because life will be easier if there are fewer languages in the world. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Several languages get extinct each year. These languages are not so important is what some people think and they are of the perception that a
world
with a fewer
language
is better.
This
essay does not agree with the opinion that the
world
should be represented only by few languages.
This
essay will discuss both points of view. The ignorance towards several languages and cultures have led to their death, as many people think that these are not vital. They are of the opinion that languages spoken by
minority number
Suggestion
the minority number
a minority number
of people in some remote corner of the
world
does not help towards progress and
hence
can be discarded.
However
, despite their relatively few speakers or readers or even they might be lacking proper documentation, they might be inheriting rich sources of information on subjects like
ethnobotany
, medicine, tradition, etc., which can be of immense use towards curbing major illness still unsolved by modern science.
For example
, there are evidences that some of the Buddhist monks have been living over 150 years of age, due to their rich use of herbs and naturopathy. A fewer
language
in the
world
is not suitable. As there is diversity in living organisms, there is a great diversity in human culture, tradition, moral values, etc., all of which are descendent of thousands of years of civilization.
This
difference in culture and tradition has led to different society having different heritage, unlike that of a
monotonic

robotic
world
.
For example
, in India there are over 500 languages, which is contributed by the fact that before the British era in the Indian subcontinent there were numerous princely states. In conclusion, some people are of the opinion that many of the languages which are being lost every year are of not much importance and the
world
with a fewer
language
is better.
However
, even the remotest
language
might be inheriting some vital information which is still a mystery and
hence
, all the languages are of importance so that our
world
is preserved of its rich heritage.
