India is rich in languages. There are a quite a number of languages spoken in India. Some of these languages are accepted nationally while others are accepted as dialects of that particular region. In 1999, 21st February was declared by UNESCO as the `International Mother Language Day` to commemorate the Bengali Language Movement in 1952. With over 200 million speakers worldwide, Bengali is the 7th most spoken language in the world. It has more speakers than languages like French and German. There are many facts related to our Indian languages. Guys please share some more information about this.

Recently UNESCO has been declared that Bengali is the sweetest language of the world. Bengali is one of the major languages of India and the main language in the state of West Bengal in eastern India. It is the mother tongue of the Bengali community of India i.e. the community to which I belong. And being a Bengali, I feel proud of my mother tongue.

The Government has recognized six languages as the `Classical Languages in India` due to their long history ranging from 1500 to 2000 years. These are Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Sanskrit and Oriya.

Yes Parijat, Odia is the 6th Indian language to get such prestigious tag after Sanskrit, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam. There has been a long-standing demand that Odia, which is one of the oldest languages and has no resemblance to Hindi, Sanskrit, Bengali, Telugu, etc. be declared as a classical language.
