3 Hindustani-(Hindustani is the primary language of India’s crowded population, and it encompasses a huge number of dialects (of which the most commonly spoken is Hindi). While many predict that the population of India will soon surpass that of China, the prominence of English in India prevents Hindustani from surpassing the most popular language in the world.)

Sir,you should show at least top 10 languages of world so as to compare Hindusthani with any other close language in India.The data you're providing there is Only Hindi No nearest Competitor.But Bengali is World's 7th most spoken Language(including Bangladesh too..!!)Thats why I support Tamim Iqbal & Shakib-Al-Hassan :-p

Yes, jealousy is not a good thing. We can happily adore English but we can't take Hindi. No integration means division between people and harm in the works. So why don't take Hindi as well as English for common practice when people from different mother tongues converge to talk.
