Hadoop: Is JAVA mandatory to understand and write algorithm using Hadoop?

Hello Folks,

I've plenty of experience for Microsoft Technology and use to work with .NET, SQL Server Database and MSBI extensively.

I wanted to work with Hadoop and Big Data.

So, is it mandatory to have good hand over JAVA?

can we write map reduce method in other language like .NET?
Java is modeled after C++, and .NET is imitation of java, so either is "Language like .NET"
