my father speaks Urdu
language of dancing peacocks
rosewater fountains
even its curses are beautiful.
He speaks Hindi
suave and melodic
earthy Punjabi
salty rich as saag paneer
coastal Kiswahili
laced with Arabic,
he speaks Gujarati
solid ancestral pride.
Five languages
five different worlds
yet English
before white men
who think their flat cold spiky words
make the only reality.

— Shailja Patel, "Dreaming in Gujarati"

I mainly add Hindi entries. I know a little Sanskrit, self-taught but enough to contribute entries in it. I know very very little about the Middle Indo-Aryan languages, but since few others bother about them I add whatever entries I can. Furthermore, can reconstruct Proto-Indo-Iranian (again self-taught) given Sanskrit and Avestan, or one of those and PIE. Besides that, I add entries in nearly all the scheduled Indian languages, plus some minor languages, as well as Indian English terms.

क्या हिन्दी और उर्दू एक ही भाषा है? मुझे नहीं पता। शायद कोई उर्दू बोलनेवाला शख़्स से मुझे फ़रमाना पड़ेगा...
