Gujarati is one of the 22 official languages of India. In addition to Gujarat, it is widely spoken in the nearby Union territories of Daman and Diu and Dadra and Nagar Haveli.  Despite their primary habitation in Gujarat, Gujaratis have a large diaspora around the world. Gujarati is also widely spoken in the United States, Canada, South Africa, and Pakistan and because of the large population of individuals who speak this language, Gujarati is the 26th most spoken language in the world. It is a member of the Indo-Aryan language family, descended from Sanskrit and Prakrit. Gujarati script is very similar to Devanagari, except without the line above the letter.
