Hindi , Official Language of Delhi

Delhi being the capital of India, is a melting pot of myriad cultures and lifestyles, that bind the whole of India together with an armored thread. It is an articulate matrix of different people, different mind sets and their different way of expressions. Over the pulse of time, Delhi has evolved into a full grown adult that understands many languages and addresses people in their home way. Since the land is bordered by the states of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, and states like Punjab and Rajasthan are not far away, it is easy to find their regional influence on the dialects of denizens of Delhi. Sometimes it is a style factor, sometime it is just for frolic, sometime it is a necessity. Whatever the reason may be, Delhites rejoice speaking in different tongues. Come Delhi to enjoy a joy of communication..

It Is How They Speak Their Heart Out

The ubiquitous Hindi is undoubtedly the major language, reigning the minds of Delhites like a shawl of camaraderie. Praised to be the mother tongue of India, the language traces its lineage to a central Indo-Aryan lineage. Literary Hindi is written in the 'Devanagari' script, which shows a strong influence of Sanskrit language, the ancient Aryan lingo. As a source for pledge, it is based on the 'Khari Boli' dialect, quite famous in the north and east of Delhi. However, what the British left, today has become one of the official languages and is widely spoken and understood all over the state. English is also the principal language of commerce in Delhi just like other main metropolis cities. Besides, it is the language of instruction in almost all the prestigious universities and private schools of the city. Another dialect, Punjabi, the mother tongue of the people of Punjab, is widely spoken in the capital suburbs mainly because of Punjabi community, comprising most of the inhabiting population. Over 30 million people regards Punjabi as their main language. It basically swells on the Gurumukhi script, that when spoken resembles Hindi.
