AMU linguist highlights ‘Maithili Urdu’ during Madhubani Literature Festival


Dr Mohammad Jahangeer Warsi, Associate Professor, Department of Linguistics, Aligarh Muslim University highlighted ‘Maithili Urdu’ during a panel discussion on ‘Maithili Bhashai Paridrishya’ during the three-day Madhubani Literature Festival jointly organised by the Centre for Studies of Tradition and Systems (CSTS), New Delhi, Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts (IGNCA), Sahitya Akademi, New Delhi and Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti (GSDS).

In the festival which celebrated cultural diversity and learning, Dr Warsi discussed his work on ‘Maithili Urdu’. Dr Warsi, who identified features of ‘Mithila Urdu’, said, “As a native of Darbhanga, I tried to understand how Maithili varies in dialects and its standard form spoken in Darbhanga and Madhubani districts of Bihar in India.”

Dr Warsi eventually identified ‘Maithili Urdu’ and its grammar and structure. He participated in the panel discussion with noted linguists, Ramavatar Yadav, Shreesh Chaudhary and Mithilesh Jha.
