That’s interesting information! BHARTI BHASHA SAMVARDHAN SANSTHAN seems to have a noble aim of promoting Hindi and other Indian native languages to preserve and enhance cultural diversity within Indian communities, both in India and globally.
India is indeed known for its linguistic diversity, with a vast number of languages and dialects spoken across the country. According to the 2011 census conducted by the Registrar General and Census Commissioner of India, there are 19,569 languages or dialects spoken as mother tongues in India. Among these, 121 languages have more than 10,000 speakers.
The Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India recognizes 22 languages as scheduled languages, which means they are officially recognized and used for various official purposes at the national level. These languages include Assamese, Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Maithili, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Odia, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Santali, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.
Apart from the scheduled languages, there are many non-scheduled languages in India. As of 2011, there were 99 non-scheduled languages spoken in the country.
It’s great to see organizations like BHARTI BHASHA SAMVARDHAN SANSTHAN working towards the preservation and promotion of these languages, which play a crucial role in India’s rich cultural tapestry.
