Hindi actually comes out of Vedic Sanskrit, developing and evolving over time into a distinct language. It’s roots are deep in the spiritual and philosophical wealth of Sanskrit, but it also has the dynamics of a fully modern language.
The Hindi language began to develop a vast literary tradition beginning in the 12th century. Many of the most popular works from this time were in the Delhi dialect, but it would be hundreds of years before standardization. Instead, dialects blossomed out of the fertile linguistic soil of the subcontinent.
Because much of the language in northern India was influenced by conquering Islamic forces — with so many loan words coming in that it formed a different language, Hindustani and later Urdu — the people of India wanted a new start. They sought to reconnect their language to Sanskrit. It is this process that led to what is today called Modern Standard Hindi.
That standard became codified with an independent Indian government. Beginning in 1954, this new government created an official grammar for the language and a consistent writing system, based on the Devanagari script.
However, the incredible history of Hindi as a language is far overshadowed by the power of its literature. At Exotic India, we celebrate this amazing legacy with our selection of books in Hindi.
