Does it differ a lot from Hindi?

Sanskrit is more like an archaic form of hindi, both are written in the same script and have a similar vocabulary.

I see, thanks! I just looked up Sanskrit and in the pictures it looked like Hindi to me and that guy said something about 1% so I was wondering if there's a big difference.

hindi was originated from sanskrit

Not really. Hindi Marathi and Telugu have a lot of words from Sanskrit. These languages are made from Sanskrit. (Not sure if I am framing this correctly)

#54

Btw do you see these languages used in daily life or is it just mainly Hindi? I mean like street signs, shop names, ads etc

#57

It depends on where you live. I live in Maharashtra and shop names are written in either Marathi or both Marathi and English. Signs are mostly in both English and Marathi but sometimes it's just Marathi.
Pretty much same for every state.
For billboards, it just depends on what it is promoting

#65

So theoretically you could drive to a different region and be unable to understand street signs?

Yes ,not everyone understand Hindi
This is major flow of having 200+ languages in one country

It mostly happens only when you go to a village/town in other state

This is legit a good question.

Yes this happens.

People think hindi is like a unified language in India. This could not be further from the truth. I lived for a couple of years in Chennai and barely anyone spoke Hindi. All they spoke was Tamil and English. This is true for all the south Indian states (Chennai in Tamil Nadu speaks Tamil, Karnataka speaks Kannad, Telangana speak Telugu, Kerala speaks Malayalam). In essence, there are around 22 major languages in India and depending upon where you go you can literally face a language barrier in your same country!

Also, people in Puducherry (A small place in south India also speak Portuguese)

There is a friend in my university from South India and he only communicates in English cause he does not know Hindi.

So technically English is the only language that people all around India speak, all other languages are regional in nature.

It's kinda like how English French and German all use the same Roman script but are different languages.

Similarly, the script used for Hindi (Devnagri) is shared by Sanskrit, Nepali, Konkani, Bhojpuri and Maithili.

They have quite a lot of shared words but grammar and other rules are very different.

Isn't there different dialects of the Filipino language or do you just prefer to call in "Filipino" as a collective?

If you know Urdu, I don't think you will have any problems understanding Hindi since the spoken Hindi language borrows a lot of words from Urdu and the grammar is basically the same.

Sudanese =/= Sundanese! Sundanese (Basa Sunda) is a local language to the western region of Java, spoken by the Sundanese people. I picked up some key phrases and sentences during my time there as a uni student.
