Know Haryanvi? Obama govt asks

world Updated: Feb 15, 2009 21:53 IST

Indian languages such as Bhojpuri and Haryanvi may not have made it to India’s Constitution, but they are included in an application form for selection to political positions with the US government.

About 20 Indian languages have found mention in the form brought out by the Barack Obama administration. These are among 101 languages listed in the form’s ‘international experience’ section, where applicants have been asked to select the ones they know.

The Indian languages mentioned in the form include six — Awadhi, Bhojpuri, Chhattisgarhi, Haryanvi, Magahi and Marwari — that are not part of the 22 languages of India listed in the Eighth Schedule of Indian Constitution.
