It is a very popular regional language spoken in parts of north-central and eastern India. Predominantly, Bhojpuris hail from the western part of the State of Bihar, the northwestern part of Jharkhand State, and the Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh State, as well as an adjoining area of the southern plains of Nepal. Bhojpuri is also spoken in Guyana, Suriname, Fiji, Trinidad and Tobago, Brazil, Mauritius, USA, Holland, Uganda, South Africa and Singapore. It is therefore often said to be the only Indian language to be spoken on all continents of the Globe.
The language of the Surinamese Hindus, however, is seldom referred to as Bhojpuri but usually as Sarnami Hindi or just Sarnami. People’s attitudes towards the Bhojpuri language have evolved over time, and, most linguists agree it Is not a dialect of Hindi, which is a widespread belief among speakers. Others, including the Government of India, while taking census, disagree, and consider Bhojpuri to be a dialect of Hindi. Bu now the Government of India is preparing to grant it statutory status as a national scheduled language. Bhojpuri shares vocabulary with Sanskrit, Hindi, Urdu and other Indo-Aryan languages of northern India. Bhojpuri and several closely related languages, including Maithili and Magadhi, are together known as Bihari languages. They are part of the Eastern Zone group of Indo-Aryan languages which include Bengali and Oriya from West Bengal and Orissa states respectively.
It is said there are numerous dialects of Bhojpuri, including three or four in eastern Uttar Pradesh state alone. The Bhojpuri speaking region, due to its rich tradition of creating leaders for building post-independent India was never devoid of intellectual prominence.
These included the first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and first President of India, Rajendra Prasad, followed by many eminent politicians and humanitarians including the second Prime Minister of India, Mr. Lal Bahadur Shastri, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, Dr. Krishna Dev Upadhyaya, and another former Indian Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar. Notable Bhojpuri personalities include litterateurs, poets and even actors. Bhojpuri’s impact on Indian literature is evident in that it became one of the bases of the development of the official language of independent India, Hindi, in the past century. Bhartendu Harishchandra, who is considered the father of literary Hindi, was greatly influenced by the tone and style of Bhojpuri in his native region. Further development of Hindi was taken by prominent laureates such as Mahavir Prasad Dwivedi and Munshi Premchand from the Bhojpuri speaking region. Pioneer Dr. Krishna Dev Upadhyaya from Ballia district devoted 60 years to researching and cataloging Bhojpuri folklore. Dr. H S Upadhyaya wrote the book ‘Relationships of Hindu family as depicted in Bhojpuri folksongs (1996). Together, they have cataloged thousands of Bhojpuri folksongs, riddles and proverbs from the different districts.Bhojpuri literature has always remained contemporary. It was more of a body of folklore with folk music and poems prevailing. Literature in written form started in the early twentieth century.
During the British Raj of India, then known as the ‘Northern Frontier Province Language,’ Bhojpuri adopted a patriotic tone and after Independence it turned to community. In the later periods, following the low economic development of the Bhojpuri speaking region, the literary work is more skewed towards the human sentiments and struggles of life. In the present era, the Bhojpuri literature, folklore, art and culture is marked by a presence of writers, poets, politicians and actors that gave it a new dimension, a revival. Notable contributors to this trend include Anand Sandhidoot, Pandey Kapil, Ashok Dwivedi, Bhikari Thakur, and others in India.
In Mauritius, Dr. Sarita Boodhoo from the Mauritius Bhojpuri Institute has don volumes of work in following the Bhojpuri culture and language and documenting the indentured laborers’ arrival on the island. The most notable recent moment has been the rousing and heart-warming return to Bhojpuri region of India’s most noted ‘Pravasi’ (expatriate), the current Prime Minister of Mauritius, Mr. Naveenchandra Raamgoolam.
He touched the soil upon arrival at the Patna airport, addressed a gathering of thousands at the famous Gandhi Maidan in chaste Bhojpuri and visited his indentured laborer grand-father’s home village February 18th through 20th, 2008. In January 2008 at the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Delhi, the President of India honored Dr. Raamgoolam with the highest honor, Pravasi Bharatiya Samman.HAMAR TV is recognition of the richness of Bhojpuri language and a celebration of Bhojpuri culture. HAMAR TV marks the culmination of a longstanding desire of the staunch Bhojpuri devout to belong to its own.
