Language in India
The languages of India belong to several language families, the major ones being the Indo-Aryan languages spoken by 73% of Indians and the Dravidian languages spoken by 24% of Indians. Other languages spoken in India belong to the Austroasiatic, Tibeto-Burman, and a few minor language families and isolates.
The Republic of India does not have a national language. However, the official languages of the Union Government of Republic of India are Hindi in the Devanagari script and English. The constitution of India states that "The official language of the Union shall be Hindi in Devanagari script." a position supported by a High Court ruling. However, languages listed in the Eighth Schedule of the Indian constitution are sometimes referred to, without legal standing, as the national languages of India. In addition, some individual states legislate their own official languages, depending on their linguistic demographics.
Individual native languages in India number several hundreds; the 1961 census recognized 1,652 (SIL Ethnologue lists 415). According to Census of India of 2001, 30 languages are spoken by more than a million native speakers, 122 by more than 10,000. More than three millennia of language contact has led to significant mutual influence among the four language families in India and South Asia. Two contact languages have played an important role in the history of India: Persian and English.

What God teaches a Christian Volunteer in India | Austin CNM

Let me first confess most of my answers to date haven’t been very inspired. I do apologize to anyone who has felt slighted. Sometimes people can be at a loss for words when they have very little to say. But if you really want to feel completely and utterly tongue tied try answering a question when you have so much to say, For five weeks I did my best to fallow my lord to the second most populace country on the far side of the world. What was that like? Where do I begin? India was- Foreign: At eleven times zones away India is as foreign as it gets. For an American volunteer in India anything and everything was a culture shock.
