I have opted English as medium. And Hindi as optional in UPSC. MAY I USE the Hindi'S POEM (THEN ITS TRANSLATION in English) in ESSAY?
@Gunjan_mishra Depends on the size of the poem. I have definitely seen people using sanskrit slokas (in English alphabets and max 2 - 4) lines and then writing its translation or meaning nearby. But I haven't seen anyone use hindi language per se. So I guess you can write hindi poems in English alphabets and then write its meaning nearby. But I suggest you keep it as short and minimal as possible.
@forappsbyotch699 I also- But I haven't seen anyone use hindi language per se..
That's why asked for any confirmation.
