A wealth of linguistic richness exists outside what are called the official languages of India
The Eighth Schedule of the Indian Constitution lists the 22 official languages of India. These are the languages that the government of India officially promotes. Originally 14 when the list was prepared in 1950, eight more languages have been included in the last 50 years in response to the demands of different language groups. Sindhi, Konkani, Maithili and Santhal were among the languages that were included. Individual states too have their own list of official languages; those that are in the Eighth Schedule and also others that aren’t. But a wealth of linguistic richness exists outside these portals of state patronage as every state is home to several languages, besides the two or three official ones.
