A unique initiative supported by IGNCA seeks to standardise the Gondi language spoken varyingly across six Indian states
Gondi is spoken by nearly 12 million Gond Adivasis, that reside within the six states of Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Madhya Pradesh. And yet, there is no one standardised Gondi language that unifies them all. Different versions and dialects exist, specific to the geographical areas that they reside in, with influences of the regional languages seeping in.
