Nimita speaking Bhojpuri

This video was recorded by Hardeep Singh in Delhi, India, and features Bhojpuri speaker Nimita Pandey. Bhojpuri was spoken in India by roughly 37,800,000 speakers as of a 2001 census. A language of the Eastern Bihari branch of Indo-Aryan, part of the Indo-European language family, Bhojpuri is spoken in the Northern-Eastern part of India and the Terai region of Nepal, primarily in eastern Uttar Pradesh, part of Bihar and Jharkhand. It is, according to social standards, considered one of the seven Hindi languages, alongside Haryanvi, Braj, Awadhi, Bundeli, Bagheli and Kannauji. Devanagari has been the official script of Bhojpuri since 1894, however Kaithi scripts were in use traditionally and historically. Bhojpuri is one of 154 languages in the world in which the United Nations has published its Universal Declaration of Human Rights: अनुच्छेद १: सबहि लोकानि आजादे जन्मेला आउर ओखिनियो के बराबर सम्मान आओर अधिकार प्राप्त हवे। ओखिनियो के पास समझ-बूझ आउर अंत:करण के आवाज होखता आओर हुनको के दोसरा के साथ भाईचारे के बेवहार करे के होखला।. e
