Jagran Correspondent, Sasaram: Rohtas. Bhojpuri speakers are very happy with the announcement of the inclusion of Bhojpuri language in its translator by the global company Google. Enlightened people of Bhojpuri belt say that this will increase the pride of the language. The richness of Bhojpuri can be gauged from the fact that this language is spoken in the thirtieth part of the world. People of Bhojpuri belt are working to make it prosperous by living in many countries of the world. There has been a constant demand for inclusion of Bhojpuri in the Eighth Schedule for a long time.
This language has all the qualifications to get constitutional recognition. Despite this, Bhojpuri language is a victim of neglect of the government machinery in its own country. Whereas in four countries Fiji, Nepal, and Mauritius and Suriname, Bhojpuri language is recognized constitutionally.
Enlightened people say:
It is a matter of pride for all Bhojpuri speakers that Google has announced the inclusion of Bhojpuri and Maithili language in its translator. Bhojpuri language is also a very suitable language for the Internet. Its potential is very rich. In today’s time in 15 to 17 countries of the world, Bhojpuri speakers are involved in the power there. When Barack Obama was president in America, he issued instructions to his leaders and personnel to learn another voluntary language apart from English. Bhojpuri was also included in the list of those languages which was proud of all of us.
One-fifth of the total population in India is Bhojpuri speaking, whereas in the world, one-third of the population reads, writes and speaks Bhojpuri. It has got constitutional recognition in many parts of the world, whereas it is unfortunate that it is not constitutionally recognized in its own country.

The announcement of giving place to Bhojpuri and Maithili in Google Translator is a respect for both these languages by Google. Especially Bhojpuri which has not yet been included in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India. Bhojpuri is not only the language of a large area of India, but it is spoken in many countries of the world. Bhojpuri speakers are spread from America to Australia and also speak it. It is one of the major languages of countries like Fiji, Guyana, Trinidad, Suriname, Mauritius etc. In all these areas, the lifestyle, food and clothing of Bhojpuri language people are the same.
Thus Bhojpuri is not only a language but also a culture. Bhojpuri cultural mass is respected by Google’s announcement of including Bhojpuri in its translator. And it is a matter of pride for all of us.– Dr. Shyam Sundar Tiwari Research Investigator and Historian
