The cost of keeping Hindi alive

From an article in the Times of India on Dec 5, 2009:
This year, the budget allocated [to the Department of Official Language] is nearly Rs 36 crore. In comparison, the National Institute of Communicable Diseases, which does work that impacts the health of millions, gets Rs 25 crore.
To be fair, the DOL (dedicated to spreading Hindi where it won't either by natural selection or survival of the fittest) also impacts the health of millions - nay, hundreds of millions - but the problem is, it affects them negatively, while the NICD affects them positively!
