Garhwali love poem
अैनामा तेरि अन्वार
मेरु सबुमा स्वाणु गीत च
पण झट्ट कैर, या हर्चि जाली
आखिरि दाँ बुन्नु छौं ..."मेरि त्वे दगड़ माया जुड़िगे"

Garhwali, a central pahari dialect, is spoken by 3 million Indians in the Garhwal (Uttarakhand state). If it is not considered endangered, this language remains through its different dialects quite vulnerable.. its writing is the devanagari script.
Garhwalis are Indians who live in the Himalayan Garhwal, in the state of Uttarakhand (northern India).
The Garhwal is a region of India in the Himalayas of Kumaon, in the north of Siwalik and in the south of Tibet. The two most famous places of pilgrimage are the towns of Badrinath and Kedarnath. The current Garhwalis are the descendants of waves of successive migrations in this region.
