About Gujarati

Gujarati is the official language of the Indian state of Gujarat and the territories of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu. It is also spoken in Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh and is a minority language in Pakistan. It derives from Sanskrit, with vocabulary borrowings from Persian and Arabic, English and Portuguese. It is closely related to Hindi and Punjabi and shares a writing system with Kachchi. Unlike Hindi, the Gujarati script does not have a horizontal line at the top of its letters.
