This interesting article is from an Indian newspaper, The Economic Time Online.

“With the increased use of computers, an overwhelming majority of Chinese people are forgetting how to write without a keyboard, emphasising the need that the Chinese language needed more protection, an on-line survey has revealed.

In a survey, conducted by the Beijing-based China Youth Daily and Chinese news portal, 80 per cent of the 432 people surveyed checked “We urgently need to strengthen the protection of the Chinese language.” Survey takers who think “it’s unnecessary” and those who don’t care each constitute just 10 per cent of the total. ”
