Department of Kashmiri


About Department


The Kashmiri language is one of the 22 scheduled languages of India and is a part of the sixth schedule in the constitution of J&K. Since November 2008, the Kashmiri language has been made a compulsory subject in all schools in the valley up to secondary levels. Kashmiri Language is surely Punjabi or Sanskrit but very dissimilar from Punjabi or Sanskrit. The Kashmiri language is a nation in itself by all means and by all angles. It has its own civilization and its own culture but I don’t think Kashmir’s are as conscious of KashmiriLanguage as they used to be previously. There is a cultural n slaught on us. So we have to reset it and reserve our language not that we must hate other languages, but we must learn them also. levels.

Kashmiri is a unique language in the Indian linguistic context. It is analytic like the modern Indian languages of Sanskritic stock and synthetic like the Old Indo-Aryan itself, possessing characteristics of both and at the same time having peculiarities of its own many of which are yet to be fully explored. Linguistically, its importance can hardly be overlooked because, as SiddheshwarVerma has observed, it reveals linguistic strata of various ages-"Vedic, Buddhist Sanskrit, Pali, KharoshthiPrakrit". George Buhler's view that it is of the greatest importance in the study of a comparative grammar of Indo-Aryan languages only stresses the obvious for preserving old word-forms and also revealing how new forms took shape from old bases, Kashmiri does seem to hold the key to understanding the processes through which these languages have passed in their development before assuming their present forms.
