Top 10 Languages of India

The Top Ten
1 Tamil

TAMIL is the first language which was spoken by humankind. It has been spread all over the world. Still TAMIL words are used by south Koreans, some of the African countries, Thailand etc. from so long ago. And it has been proved. There are so many TAMIL traditions are followed by many countries in the world. No other languages had given this kind of impact...
TAMIL language has so many special features in it. TAMIL has its own way of incredible grammar. TAMIL is a natural language.

Everyone loves Tamil because of its ancient culture and every district have their own way of speaking Tamil for an example if you go to Madurai they speak different , if you go to Thanjai they speak different, if you go to "Thoothukodi" they speak different and etc. Tamil has So many shapes and beautiful words. If you guys are a book lover then you sure must-read at least one Tamil book which tells something about History and you admire every word.

I can see many comments in other languages asking for #1 position. I personally feel Tamil is the oldest language and it is the mother of all languages. Even there is evidence that one point back in the future everyone in the world spoke Tamil. Tamil has goof evidence for being an ancient language.

The words of this language are absolutely amazing when it comes to music... It often mesmerize me... How this language could do this... And TAMIL peoples are really proud to speak in TAMIL...They Even rather try to speak in other languages expect English for global communication...

2 Hindi

All Indian languages are beautiful. I'm obviously biased here since Hindi is my mother tongue. I like how Hindi uses z's and f's but not the gutturals (don't come at me saying it's Urdu. A language is made by the it's speakers). And yet it sounds absolutely enchanting, even better, when spoken in its pure Sanskrit form.
The best thing about Hindi though is that it can be romantic (think songs like Barso are Megha or Tu Hain from Mohan Jodaro), colloquial or highly technical (as proven by Hindi news channels and medical panelist's during recent coronavirus coverage).

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 not the national language. There is NO national language in India. Get your facts right. Hindi has become so widely used only because it has been made compulsory by the boards of education in schools like CBSE.

Hindi is very logical. You get what you see -- you speak what you write.
The Grammar is very well defined, there is hardly any ambiguity, like, say, in English.
It has a rich heritage of Sanskrit to fall back upon.
It's a beautiful you pleasure in reading and speaking!

3 Bengali

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...

Bengali is language of poets, Bengali is the language in which the most melodious songs of world are made ( rabindra Sangeet ), it is the language of freedom fighters, ' rebel ' poets who wrote to inspire the freedom fighters, it's the language of intellectuals, best scientists of the world. Bengali is the language of that person who banned sati, made India a better place for women, it is the language in which the Oscar winning movie was made, it is no doubt the best language in India
I don't know about Tamil, but Bengali, at least is far far above hindi

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.

Bengali is the finest of all languages in the globe. There is no better language than Bengali. I am proud to be able Bengali. Hope one day Bengali will become the national and official language of India.
Joy Bangla.

4 Kannada

Kannada is one of the sweetest sounding language in India, Kannada not only represents the native state Karnataka it represents along with its culture, customs and kind of the People and food. Kannada having total 8 jnanapeeta which is from only one state! Which is second most and enough to prove the greatness of Kannada literature. Historical background is all proves that Kannada is oldest Dravidian language. And it is easy to learn and as similar as Sanskrit! And beautiful language you'll ever get to speak or listen!

Kannada has the best and technically sound script compared to its counter parts. And one of the oldest languages on earth along with Tamil. The literature is of Kannada is very much rich compared to other Languages of India. The Jnanapeetha Awards and Hopefully the adaption of Kannada by Internet user is on exponential rate. Any languages should not die. They doesn't only represent just another language for the sake of counts, they represent a culture, a lifestyle. So everybody should breath their Mother tongue. And respect our Indian Languages. English should be used only for communication and Global purpose. We should retain our languages.

Jai Hind

Sirigannadam Gelge, Siri gannadam Baalge

According to me Kannada older than Tamil. Tamil declared as a classical language on the basis of one thousand years old recod but Kannad declared as a classical language on the basis of one thousand five hundred years old record.

Sanskrit and Kannad ancient language of India.

Practically nobody will prove which is oldest language on the earth.

It is on of the oldest languages on earth. It is also the only language which is 99.99 percent logically correct. It is very simple to learn yet very beautiful. It has to be in the #1 spot. Come on people vote for this amazing language to reach #1 where it deserves to be. Jai Hindu Jai Karnataka mathe.

5 Marathi

Marathi is the Most Sweetest and Beautiful Language I came across along with Bengali in whole India.
I would definitely Vote this one. It also have more than 80 Million Speakers in India making it the 4th most spoken language in India.
It is old and is very rich in literature. I just loved it.
Check songs like Apsara Aali, Dhaga Dhaga to understand the sweetness and beauty of this beautiful language.

History. Indian languages, including Marathi, that belong to the Indo-Aryan language family are derived from early forms of Sanskrit. Marathi is one of several languages that further descend from Maharashtri Prakrit...!

Marathi is much older than Hindi. Hindi evolved quite much later unlike Marathi.
1st stone script of Marathi available today is found at Shravanbelgol in Karnataka which is Jain place.

1. Economically important
2.Easy to learn especially for Hindi people
3.Many people know as most of them have lived in Mumbai some time

6 Telugu

This top 10 website is from tamil fakers... Not only this they fakes everything in India with fake blogs and YouTube videos... They are much in social media just for misleading people with their fake activities...even they listed tamil heroes and music directors in top spots who not even know outside their State...Telugu people in social media just to educate people about world and with entertainment videos...these Tamils are in social media just to edit fake websites blogs and YouTube videos boasting about fake tamil language... Telugu is oldest surviving language in India older than tamil... And 3rd most spoken language in India...

Telugu is a Pride unto it's people, it stays in the culture and becomes one with it's younger generation through the colloquial tongue and the numerous films. It is called Italian of the East due to it's words ending with vowels thus lending it a sweet note.

Telugu is a South-Central Dravidian language with the third largest number of native speakers in India (75 million). It is one of the twenty-two scheduled languages of the Republic of India and primarily spoken in the state of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It is also spoken in some neighboring states.

Telugu is 2nd higjest spoken language in India. Tje only language with more letters and ehat you speak will be written. Many say indian languages are written same way as they dpeak. But yhat is not true. For example Tamil. Tamilians can not pronounce any of indian person names properly, due to less number of letters. But Telugu is 100% you write is whay you pronounce. It is called italian of east.

7 Malayalam

This language is so low because of less speakers. But the fact is that thia is the toughest of all languages in India and can be in the top 10 list of the world's most toughest languages. It demands much effort and exercises from you as an below average Malayalam speaker too uses probably every muscles in his vocal part to speak this beautiful language. Also Malayalees are the best in learning any other languages and pronouncing it fluently that too because Malyalam has borrowed many words from other languages, even European, West Asian and East Asian.

Learning Malayalam is like practicing tongue twisters. People may find it difficult to learn because it is a unique & amazing language. Malayalam has alphabets & words which can't even be pronounced or written in other languages including English.

Malayalam is probably new among of all these languages but has all the advantages of all south indian languages and if you have any chance to read any poems in this language then you can understand what I am talking about. It is very hard to learn, once you do you can master any language.

It is one of the best languages in India although the native speakers are less compared to other Indian languages. Also,Malayalam is the toughest among Indian languages...And native Malayalam speakers can handle English with best and clear accent..It's beautiful,poetic and the best to communicate.

8 Punjabi

I am married in chennai recently and I hate tamil and really I miss my culture and language...punjabi is the best language and our punjabi vulture is the best culture

Punjabi is the language of lions.
I love Punjabi and Iam proud to be a Punjabi.

Punjabi is the best punjab

Punjabi is the language of the Lions!

9 Gujarati

I will not say like others best on the earth best on the planet etc. But Gujarati is language to all.All other indian languages of india is also beautiful.

Easy & sweet language

It is fun to speak gujarati because of it's ease of speaking and listening

Best and sweet

10 Urdu

Urdu is the national language of Pakistan and they are so blessed because it's a beautiful language, spoken, written, and heard. Bollywood is ridden with Urdu words, no song in its history would've been complete without heartfelt words like "dua", "humsafar", "meherbaan", the list goes on. Bollywood overuses Urdu words, A LOT. In fact Bollywood is an Urdu or Hindustani industry, far from Hindi. And even adopts Islamic terms. The Mughals after all left their impact.

I got lost on the day of Hajj, and found that hardly anyone could speak my native English, after hours of wandering I realised that I was using the wrong language, switching to Urdu saved the day, a surprising number of Arabs can speak a heavily accented version of it.

Bollywood adopted the language Urdu for its films otherwise no non-hindi speaker would have been able to watch their films! Classic and recent example of urdu words being used in a Bollywood film is the bajirao mastanj song Aayat (Ayat means verse in urdu/arabic) yet Indians keep arguing that who cares it's a Hindi film this is all Hindi. Okay make all Bollywood films Hindi now please because after all its national language of INDIA, that will stop this confusion

It should ne no. 1 its beautiful it is so poetic it is so sophisticated it is such a sugar coated toungue only reason people are not voting for this is because it is not born in India it came came from outside and because few no about it or heard it.

The Contenders
11 Sanskrit

Sanskrit is the mother of all languages, it is the language of God. It is the most grammatical language. It is sad to see less people speaking this language while there are more people speaking Greek and Arabic.

Sanskrit is the mother of all of the languages in the world. It is also one of the oldest languages in the world, but not older than Tamil, my mother tongue. Sanskrit is the language of Hindu gods.

Sanskrit is the language of God, the oldest language of all, world's best language and Mother language of all the world's languages.

All of you please learn this language.

Best language and the oldest language, some people say tamil but we all know that that it is Sanskrit. Even our sculptures are written in Sanskrit.

12 Oriya

Odia is third oldest language after Tamil and Sanskrit. As it was evolved after merging of Aryan and Dravidian language. The number of its speakers declined due to continuous natural disasters in Odisha and people left this place and started moving to western, central, north-eastern India. The development of Odia language is found to be the mixture of Tamil and Sanskrit as Odias are (People of Odisha) believed to trade with Indonesia, Sri Lankans, Chinese in ancient ages.

As I know , it is not mixture of any Tamil language , as we know Sanskrit is the father of language , Oriya language is also generated from Sanskrit , but we can say it is similar to Bengali language. Oriya language is one of the oldest language of our nation .

Wait till you get scolded by an Odia, you will know how different the sweet language becomes when someone is not having a good temper. It just is richer and can semblance any emotion easily.

It has the most similarity with Sanskrit.
Also you can any word of any language easily with the help of its script.

13 English

It is the most common language, that is all I can say. It gives us more oppurtunities and we can communicate to more people. It is the world's language now. Everyone knows English. Other than that, it is a very basic language. Nothing special about it.

English is worst according to me because, we don't spell what we write in English. Indian languages, what we write we spell in same manner.

Best English version language is Strine - from Australia.
Champion version, top shelf and stone the flaming crows, mate!
Crack a tinny and 'ave a bloody go ya mug1

Effective language to communicate anywhere in the world...

14 Maithili

I like maithili because its very sweetest language for conversation.

Maithili is sweetest language. Even scolding sounds respectful and sweet

16 Assamese

Easiest to learn, most effective communication medium is Assamese. Very sweet to hear without any sharp and harse pronunciation is the beauty of Assamese language. One can express his/her feelings with a very less vocabulary.

Assamese is one of the richest and sweetest language in India.

18 Konkani

It is a language spoken along the west coast of India, across Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Kerala. It is a logical language, and has many dialects according to the region in which it is spoken. It has a touch of royalty in its most pristine form.
