आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच
शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करूं
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवाचें जीवन
शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां।
Words are the only jewels I possess,
Words are the only clothes I wear,
Words are the only food that sustains my life,
Words are the only wealth I distribute among people. *

Kazakh and Bhojpuri Language
Kazakh is a Turkic language closely related to Nogai and Karakalpak. We got request from Kazakh language by Kamilla Kurmanova. On FUEL, please stay tuned with FUEL Kazakh page for any update. Thanks Kamilla for taking the lead.Bhojpuri is a language spoken in parts of north-central and eastern India. It is spoken in the western part of state of Bihar, the northwestern part of Jharkhand, and the Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh (UP), as well as adjoining parts of the Nepal Terai. Chandan Kumar Mishra has taken the lead to work on FUEL Bhojpuri. No computer in available in Bhojpuri and so it would be great to see the pioneer work towards creating Bhojpur computer. Thanks Chandan.
