The history of writing

The history of writing records the development of expressing language by letters or other marks. Hindi is a standardised and sanskritised register of the Hindi-Urdu language derived from the Khariboli dialect of Delhi and Western Uttar Pradesh. It is an official language of India.

HW 1

The Constitution of India, adopted in 1950, declares Hindi in the Devanagari script as the official language of India. English continues to be used as an Official language of India along with Hindi. The Constitution of India has stipulated the usage of Hindi and English to be the two languages of communication for the Central Government. Most of government documentation is prepared in three languages: English, Hindi, and the official state language.

The dialect upon which Standard Hindi is based is khariboli, the vernacular of Delhi and the surrounding western Uttar Pradesh and southern Uttarakhand region. This dialect acquired linguistic prestige in the Mughal Empire (17th century) and became known as Urdu, "the language of the court." After independence, the Government of India set about standardising Hindi as a separate language from Urdu.


Venda was a bantustan, a territory set aside for black inhabitants of South Africa as part of the policy of apartheid. It was founded as a homeland for the Venda people, speakers of the Venda language. In 1979, it was declared independent by the South African government and its residents lost their South African citizenship. Its independence was not recognized by the international community. The sovereign nation of Venda didn't practice apartheid, leading to relationships across the racial divide. Venda was re-absorbed into South Africa on 27 April 1994.

Venda issued stamps only from 1979 - 1989. These stamps were released in 1988
