Bishnupriya Manipuri Language, a direct descendant of Sanskrit language, originated in Manipur
during the pre-historic era. It is mainly spoken in Manipur and parts of Assam
in India and also in Bangladesh, Burma and other overseas countries.
Influenced by the Sanskrit and Maharastri as well as Sauraseni Prakrits, the language has some characteristics of Hindi and some denoting terms of Meitei. It also has a little influence of Bengali and
Assamese. Bishnupriya Manipuri has two dialects, namely Rajar Gang (Kings Village) and Madoi Gang (Queens’ village).
