“PRAKRTA LANGUAGE”

SELECTED ESSAYS ON RARHOLOGY

Note: Rarh is forgotten civilization of ancient India. In this series, Ac Kiirtyananda Avt., Vidya Pratinidhi of Rarhology Faculty of Ananda Marga Gurukula brings alive the history of the oldest civilization of the planet.

Balagandhar Tilak, the great scholar of 19th century was the first man who said that Arya had come to India from Central Asia. Tilak was a great Samskrta scholar and astronomer. He came to that conclusion just seeing the linguistic similarities between Central Asia and India. After this declaration many scholars of the world have supported this theory.

Aryas came to India with Vaedic language. Thinkers started to think that before the advent of Aryas, the people of India spoke and wrote either in Dravidian languages or Austric languages as their colloquial languages.

It was also a belief that Vaedic languages is the mother of Samskrta language. They are also telling that when Prakrta languages became refined(samskar – in Samskrta) it got the name of Samskrta.

But in current age, the revolutionary idea given by

Shrii P.R.Sarkar has established that the Samskrta

is an independent language of India.

It has not too much relation with Vaedic language.

What Shrii P.R.Sarkar Preceptor of Ananda Marga told in HIS book – “Sabhyatar Adi Vindu Rarh”, we are mentioning a citation from aforesaid book

As our discussion is related with ancient Rarh, before saying something about the language of Rarh, we must something about the origin of languages.

Anthropologist say, “there is also negro blood in Rarh, but it is not more than 3%. And Mongolian blood is very much negligible.

But the people of Rarh used Samskrta words in large numbers. The people of Rarh are also using the words which have emanated from Samskrta.

There are – Tatsama-Bhagna Tatsama- Tadbhava- Ardha Tadbhava.

92% words or the language of Rarh are directly or indirectly related with Samskrta.

Rarh is situated in the extreme eastern part of India.

If the Samskrta language would have a foreign language and if it came to Rarh from the western front of India, from which source so many Samskrta words came in the coloquial language of Rarh.

It will not be wrong to think that Samskrta had no relation with the advent of Aryans”.

It is a sensational remark …. the philological conception of to-day’s scholars has become totally upset.

Now this touchy subject must be studied from different angle of vision.

Not only for this Shrii P.R.Sarkar, Preceptor of Ananda Marga put up some more points by which we can easily prove the aforesaid idea.

Preceptor Shrii P.R.Sarkar said, there are seven Prakrta languages in India.

These are:-

  1. Magadhi Prakrta of Eastern India
  2. Shauraseni Prakrta of Central India
  3. Paeshacii Prakrta of North Western India
  4. Pashcatya Prakrta of North West frontier
  5. Saendhavii Prakrta of Sindhu delta
  6. Malavii Prakrta of Central Western India
  7. Maharastri Prakrta of South Western India.

All the Indian languages were born from aforesaid seven Prakrta languages. Now it is very interesting that the languages which have born from Magadhii Prakrta have Samskrta Tadbhava words in abundance. On the other hand, Vaedic Tadbhava words are less in number.

In Pashcatya Prakrta, we do not see many Samskrta Tadbhava words.

Now question may arise what is the cause of this difference?

The main cause of this difference is that Samskrta was the language of Rarh – that means the language of Eastern India.

So the Indian languages were highly influenced by Samskrta and these languages were less influenced by Vaedic language of Arya.

We see the opposite pictures when we observe the languages which were born from Pashcatya Prakrta.
