Stories in Hindustani
Tomorrow, 11 am at Pagdandi.
Entry: Rs 150/-
Hindustani is the lingua franca of Northern India and Pakistan. It is an Indo-Aryan language, deriving its base primarily from the Khariboli dialect of Delhi. The language incorporates a large amount of vocabulary from Prakrit, Persian and Arabic, as well as Sanskrit. Before the partition of India, the terms Hindustani,Hindi, and Urdu were synonymous; they all covered what would be mostly called Hindi and Urdu today. The term Hindustani is still used for the colloquial language in many parts of India, in literature, in music, for the language of Bollywood films, as well as for several languages of the Hindi-Urdu belt spoken outside the Indian subcontinent, such as Fiji Hindi of Fiji and the Caribbean Hindustani of Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Surinam, and the rest of the Caribbean. Hindustani is also spoken by a small number of people in Mauritius and South Africa.
