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.

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.
