Language of Porbandar


The people of Porbandar speak three languages namely, Gujarati, Hindi and English. The Gujarati language is a variant of the Devanagari script and it has changed a lot since the ancient times due to interpolations in different ages. However, in the modern times, Gujarati is one of the most famous languages in the world since a good amount of Gujarati people reside outside India.

The main language of Porbandar is Gujarati. Apart from Gujarati the people of this city also speak Hindi and English. However, during the time of Rana Satranji, the Braja language was in vogue. It was the verbal as well as the literary language of Porbandar. In fact, the Rana himself used to compose poems in the Braja language. Officially Gujarati language is recognized by the Indian constitution. It is one of the 14 regional and 22 official languages of India. It is recognized as a variation of the Devanagari script.

Schools and colleges in Porbandar follow all the three languages and the official work is done either in Gujarati or Hindi. The Gujarati language is derived from Sanskrit, the Indo-Aryan language. It is one of the modern, sweet and most spoken languages of the world. The ancient form of Gujarati was spoken by the residents of northern Gujarat, known as the Gurjars. The authors and poets of Gujarat have used this language to give expressions to their thoughts and ideas.
