					Learn Indian Basics Through Hindi

A country’s official language is very important for its growth and
development. First and foremost this is the medium a large percentage of
its constituents as they engage in all sorts of activities throughout the
nation. It is also the very thing that distinctly takes the said country
apart from its neighbors across the globe. As such it is considered an
important treasure that gives every member of that nation pride and
glory. Let’s take a look and learn at how the Indian language of Hindi
came on top of the list.

The Hindi belt which is comprised primarily by parts of northern and
central India is dominated by the usage of the country’s official
language. The term Hindi is identified with the Indo-Aryan language and
also with some of the dialect continuum of the language. According to the
2001 census in India around 41 percent of the native speakers within the
country utilize Hindi dialects.

The Constitution of India states that Hindi is part of the two official
spoken communications, English being the other form. It is main cog of
the mode of communication used by the Indian federal and central
government and is also one of the 22 scheduled languages as mandated in
the 8th Schedule of the Constitution. According to the pages of Indian
history, Hindi traces its roots from Prakrit. It is also stated in the
books that at the end of the tenth century Hindi came into the picture
via dialects such as Awadhi, Braj, and Khari Boli.

Hindi is the leading contender among India’s national languages as it is
used to communicate in areas of states like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh,
Chattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Madhya
Pradesh, and Himachal Pradesh. It is also employed as an alternative
language along with northern and central India languages such as Bengali,
Gujarati, Marathi, and Punjabi. It is also widely accepted past the
borders of India into countries like Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

Moving on, Hindi is written using the method of the Devanagari script
which was present during the ancient times when Sanskrit was around.
Sounds that are readily found in the Sanskrit are represented by the
addition of dots on letters of the Devanagari that depicts the same kind
of sound. The rules of grammar construction in the Hindi form are quite
unorthodox. Let’s identify with them and see why.

By now you have been accustomed to the English format of subject-verb-
object. In Hindi grammar the format that is followed is subject-object-
verb which simply means that the verbs are commonly found at the last
part of the sentence instead of being placed before the object. Hindi
also employs the method of split ergativity wherein the verbs coincide
with the object in the sentence instead of having more connect ion with
the subject.

The article the is not utilized in Hindi instead the numeral one is the
one that implies an indefinite singular article which is commonly the job
of a/an. Postpositions are the ones present in the Hindi grammar which
are like prepositions but are placed after the nouns.
There are also notable differences on the use of different tenses,
variations in cases, gender, and interrogatives. Conventional
punctuations are utilized like question marks, commas, and exclamation
points but a vertical line is traditionally used in place of periods to
signify the end of a sentence.

The Indian language of Hindi may be hard to learn but if you put your
best put forward it will surely be just like your first encounter with
ABCs and 123s.
