Immediately after its independence, India made Hindi the official language in the constitution, along with English, which (to this day) plays a subordinate role.

22 recognized languages

22 official languages ​​are anchored in the Indian constitution. A distinction is made between 2 language families: the Indo-Germanic languages, which are spoken by 74% of the Indian population (mainly in the north) and the Dravidian languages, which are mainly spoken by the rest of the population in the south of the country. India is therefore the country with the greatest linguistic diversity. There are also 1,600 dialects and minority languages.

Hindi - a language that is not widely used

Although Hindi is an officially recognized language, it is only spoken by 20% of the population. English is very widely spoken and the mother tongue of more than 10 million Indians. English is also officially recognized, although the government tried to remove the language from the constitution in 1964. Angry protests across the country ultimately prevented this from happening. Today, English is considered the second official language, but the Indian government has launched a program to promote Hindi.

Even so, there is a good chance that English will continue to occupy an important place, especially in order to further advance the development of India and to consolidate its place in the world.
