"Padharo Mhare Des" A Language With A Tint of Honey

The colorful and exotic state of Rajasthan, the Land of the mighty Kings, abridge the essence of India. The home of the Rajputs harbor different languages and varied dialects, spoken all over Rajasthan. The royal aroma that the language carries with itself is amazing. Listen to it, isn't it regal? Impeccably mixed with a slight savor of sweetness, the Rajasthani lingua bestows respect and love in every word that is spoken, written or understood. Rajasthan is majorly a Hindi-speaking state in its various dialects. The famous Rajasthani language embraces five primary dialects - Marwari, Mewari, Dhundhari, Mewati and Harauti along with several other forms prevailing in the interiors. However, due to accelarated industrialization, and an impelling global influence on the economy, English continues to be a popular and eminent means of communication in everyday business. The popular languages of Rajasthan are spoken almost all over the state.

The Communication Synergy

The official language in Rajasthan is Marwari, spoken in one form or other, mainly in and around the district of Jodhpur. Marwari has many cognate words with Hindi. Notable phonetic correspondences include 's' in Hindi with 'h' in Marwari. For example "sona" (gold) in Hindi translates to "hono" (gold) in Marwari. The mixed dialects of Marwari are spoken in Barmer and in parts of Nagaur district. In the east, it influences the speech of Ajmer, Udaipur and Chittorgarh, while in the west it affects the same of Jaisalmer district. An anomaly is seen in the northwest, in the Ganganagar district, where it is spoken with a slight Punjabi accent. The language was recently used in the Hindi movie Paheli, blended with the national language Hindi to make it understandable to the common mass.

Jaipuri or Dhundhari, grabs the second place in terms of usage and envelopes the districts of Jaipur, Kota, Bundi, Ajmer and parts of Kishangarh. Mewati is originally the language of the former Mewat, the land of the Meos. Mewati is a lingua of Jaipuri to the northeast, which is blended in the form of Braja Bhasha in Bharatpur, due to its proximity to Mathura. These are also the local languages of Rajasthan.

The sweet dialect is profounded by the use of 'Sa' in the end of sentence. Welcome is connoted as ' Aao Sa' whereas ' Baitho Sa' means please sit down. The language along with the royal attire that the people dress themselves with, is enough to make one feel in heaven. 'Hukum' or master is often used to show respect to eminent personalities.
