Hindi History

Hindi developed out of ancient Sanskrit, the current sacred language of Hinduism and Buddhism. A sacred language, or liturgical language, is a language that is primarily spoken in certain religions on a daily basis. Hindi follows the Khariboli dialect which prior to the 17th century, was the base for both Hindi and Urdu. A transitionary period that started during the Mughal Empire in the 1600s caused a slight yet continual shift of Hindi away from Urdu. For that reason, Hindi is spoken in India and Urdu is spoken in Pakistan. However, Hindi and Urdu are mutually intelligible.

Hindustani is the language form that both Hindi and Urdu belong to. Hindustani was the official language that was used during the Mughal Empire. Hindi and Urdu differ in that they are written using different writing scripts, Hindi uses Devanagari and Urdu uses Perso-Arabic. Hindi, specifically using the Devanagari writing script, is currently the official language of India.

The British Empire under the British Raj ruled the territory of modern day India from the mid 19th to mid 20th century. The British Indian Empire also ruled the lands of Pakistan and Bangladesh during this time period. India had not developed into a sovereign nation until the mid 20th century with the help of a pacifist movement that was made famous by Mahatma Gandhi.
