Chhattisgarhi Bible - New Testament

Chhattisgarhi (Devanagari: छत्तीसगढ़ी) (Odia :ଛତିଶଗଡ଼ି) or as (Odia: ଲରିଆ -Laria/Loriya ) is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by 18 million people in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. It is closely related to Awadhi, Bagheli and Odia. Some linguists also treat Chhattisgarhi and Sadri as dialects of Odia.Chhattisgarhi has been known by the name Khaltahi to surrounding hill-people and by the name Loriya to speakers in neighboring regions of Odisha to Chhattisgarh. The speakers are concentrated in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh and in adjacent areas of Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, and Jharkhand. Chhattisgarhi cultural and political movements, with origins from the 1920s, affirmed Chhattisgarhi linguistic and cultural identity and sought greater autonomy within India. It was 1 November, 2000 when 16 districts in the state of Madhya Pradesh became the new state of Chhattisgarh.
