Rammohan was the first to give
importance to the development of the mother tongue. His Gaudiya Vyakaran in
Bengali is the best of his prose works.
His Bengali was terse, simple and elegant. By translating the scriptures of the Hindus
into Bengali he gave Bengali a new dignity.
Rabindranath Tagore and Bankimchandra followed in his footsteps.
Rammohan wrote lyrics also.
