Mine is HINDI Hindi is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, due to the large population of India. According to the 1991 census of India[3] (which encompasses all the dialects of Hindi, including those that might be considered separate languages by some linguists—e.g., Bhojpuri), Hindi is the mother tongue of about 337 million Indians, or about 40% of India's population that year. According to SIL International's Ethnologue[4], about 180 million people in India regard standard (Khari Boli) Hindi as their mother tongue, and another 300 million use it as a second language. Outside India, Hindi speakers number around 8 million in Nepal, 890,000 in South Africa, 685,000 in Mauritius, 317,000 in the U.S.[5], 233,000 in Yemen, 147,000 in Uganda, 30,000 in Germany, 20,000 in New Zealand and 5,000 in Singapore, while the UK and UAE also have notable populations of Hindi speakers. Hence, according to the SIL ethnologue (1999 data), Hindi/Urdu is the fifth most spoken language in the world. According to Comrie (1998 data)[6], Hindi is the second most spoken language in the world, with 333 million native speakers.

I'm reading "1421: The Year China Discovered the World" by Gavin Menzies. Just a few hours ago I read that in that year a Chinese fleet arrived to Cape Verde Islands much before the Portuguese did. Menzies found a stone stele with an inscription in a language and an alphabet he didn't know. Neither did the Chinese experts he consulted. He sent a fax with a photo of the inscription to the Bank of India and they said it was written in malayalam. The Chinese fleet previously had been at Calicut port.

Arabic Before I answer this question, I like to think about, why this thread was created ? And what was the real motive for this question? When I find nothing wrong, immediately I prefer to answer. However I like questions on science and politics but don't ignore other members requests. I'm thankful to mylot for giving such opportunity to share our views with international members.
