This work explores the rich linguistic heritage of the country. Originally published in Bangla more than three decades ago, the book gives a window-view of the languages spoken and written in India.
It discusses the script and literature of each of India's major languages recognized by the Indian Constitution. In a milieu where language disputes have become contentious issues, the book analyses its importance as a nation-binding force.
