Chapters 6 and 7 are on the association of Urdu with two contradictory themes: religion and the amorous and erotic. For, if it is an Indian language then it belongs to Hindus as well as Muslims but if it is a product of the military camps of the Mughals—as many Pakistani school textbooks claim it to be—then it started off as a 13 symbol of military conquest and remains a Muslim preserve. Pre-modern languages have a lot of variation—spellings, words, aspects of grammar and pronunciation—and this is precisely what prescriptive authorities eliminate. And, while much more widespread because of the modern means of communications than ever before, some variety of this language has been a lingua franca over much of the subcontinent longer than any other language.

This book is a social history of Urdu including Urdu-Hindi in both its meanings. It is also important because British understandings of the language led to classificatory categories such as the ones in the census which then constructed and reinforced ethno-linguistic identities. Both the standardized varieties, like all other big languages, are actually made up of area-bound dialects or class-bound sociolects varieties as well as styles and registers. Whether the amorous and erotic associations of Urdu are suppressed or not depends upon which identity perception of its users is favoured. What is interesting is that all of these classifications help us understand the identity of Urdu only partially.

Some of these manuscripts also contain texts in other languages. And as Latin formed Europe, it also inspired the Americas. About 75 per cent of the inscriptions on Pakistani trucks plying day and night all over the roads of Pakistan from Karachi to Kabul, Quetta to Lahore and Gilgit to the Neelam Valley are in Urdu. It is associated with the theory that the language was born in the Mughal military camps because military life necessitated the interaction of Muslim and Hindus. Speaking about the analytical category of language he says: The language point of view on history can be contrasted with the genetic approach to human history, which is currently revolutionising our view of our distant past. They are mostly nearcontemporary as the writing appeared after the demise of the saint.

These sources relied upon written language and to use it as evidence for the existence of the ancestor of Urdu-Hindi is problematic. Most of these are of a lexicographical nature, sometimes with references to literature, mostly dictionaries.

They are mostly nearcontemporary as the writing appeared after the demise of the saint. It is argued that it was this process of standardization which associated the language with the Muslim identity in north India.

Thus, many manuscripts contain marginal corrections and additions, and odes glosses by readers, both Oriental and Western. When this was discovered by Colin Imber, who came to the library in August to study some of the manuscripts but found that they had been removed from the premises, he sent in a petition signed by twenty-five fellow-lecturers and others to protest against this 'asset-stripping job on Manchester's cultural heritage.

But these indexical relationships function within a society and are invested with significance by the ideology of that social order.

Robertson librarian Caution is advisable here: proof in most cases is based on the wording of colophons, sometimes ambiguous in itself, and one can never be absolutely sure whether in some cases colophons suggesting an autograph were not sometimes slavishly copied by copyists, who then failed to mention their own names.

Almost inevitably his knowledge of these languages must have remained somewhat superficial and this accounts for many mistakes, some of these based on erroneous translation, in both the 'Catalogue' and the Hand-List. This book is a social history of Urdu including Urdu-Hindi in both its meanings.
