History Of Hindustani

Hindustani is presently represented by Standard Hindi and Urdu, the official languages of India and Pakistan, and originated during the Mughal Empire. It was during the Mughal period that the Persian court language exerted a strong influence on the Indo-Aryan dialects of central India, leading to the creation of Rekhta, or "mixed" speech; mixed speech then became known as Hindustani, was elevated to a literary language and is the basis for modern standard Hindi and Urdu. Although these official languages are distinct registers with regards to their formal aspects, such as modern technical vocabulary, they continue to be all but indistinguishable in their vernacular forms.

    If usually the “present age” is no very long time, still, at our pleasure, or in the service of some such unity of meaning as the history of civilization, or the study of geology, may suggest, we may conceive the present as extending over many centuries, or over a hundred thousand years.
    Josiah Royce (1855–1916)

    The myth of independence from the mother is abandoned in mid- life as women learn new routes around the mother—both the mother without and the mother within. A mid-life daughter may reengage with a mother or put new controls on care and set limits to love. But whatever she does, her child’s history is never finished.
