Literature in the Regional Languages of India

While many large countries have several distinct languages in use, perhaps nowhere has as many vibrant and thriving forms of speech as India. Exotic India has an unparalleled collection of books in over ten different regional languages. We offer thousands of books in Tamil, Bengali, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Malayalam, and Marathi — along with hundreds offered in several other languages.


This collection is unlike any other you can find online. This staggering library contains all the major works from all the many languages, as well as harder to find titles. Within it, you can discover children’s storybooks, lifestyle guidance, religious texts, poetry, and so many other amazing genres. If there is a book you need in one of the regional languages of India, we have it. We even have translations!


The breadth of spoken languages in India reveals the amazing diversity of people and cultures in the country. After all, these are not all dialects of one language — they come from many entirely distinct language families. All of these languages add to the complex tapestry of Indian culture, and each brings its own noble traditions of literature.


The majority of these are Indo-Aryan languages, and so they are fairly closely related to Hindi. These include popular languages like Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali, Assamese, Nepali, Marathi, Gujarati, and Oriya. But Dravidian languages are spoken predominantly in the south — this includes Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.


While these languages cover over 97% of speakers, there are even more regional languages spoken in India!


Among all of these are amazing stories waiting to be read, beautiful poetry to be found, and profound spiritual wisdom to be gained. Exotic India is proud to deliver the best online selection of literature in regional languages of the country.
