Top 10 Languages of India


The Top Ten

1 Tamil

It is the very ancient language than any other languages in the world. Many poems and literature has been written even before 5000 years ago, before because.

Who is that stupid saying that telugu is great it takes many days to learn telugu but Tamil in one hour

Tamil is the only surviving classical language of the world.

In India the Tamil language is a unique one, India's all language following Sanskrit script except tamil

2 Hindi

Hindi is the biggest language of India, has a scientific pronunciation, a complete set of grammar and proverbs, a good amount of books and literature and the ability to connect non-native people. Though its not thousands years old language but it progressed with way better than any other language.

Hindi is our National Language. Whoever disagees is an idiot. I'm Telugu by the way.

I lv your opinion

I love my language

3 Bengali

Bengali has no dearth of writers, even now. It's not the limitation of the contemporary Bengali writers, but the readers are turning into viewers and surfers. They are lacking patience of reading. It's their problem. Again worst of Bengali literature scores better than best of Hindi. Bottom line : The list is quantitative, rather than qualitative.

If a random intellectual is asked what's the most beautiful language in the world, he would probably say it's French. Yeah, we can't quite disagree with him. But there's a language in the earth, less known by Europeans, which is much more affluent, much more artistic and much more magical --- it's Bengali. Rich history, superior literary works and noble intellectual society (once). I really wish Bengali reclaims its due honor. Things weren't so bad just two decades ago. I am happy I found the most beautiful literary works written in Bengali. Life won't be the same once you come across this gem...

Most intellectual and tonally sweet wholesome rich language. The only language received noble prize for literature in India. Bengali is the best followed by Urdu / Persian.
