The Central Pahari languages include, Kumaoni and Garhwali (spoken in the Kumaon\Garhwal region of Uttarakhand). Kumaoni, like Garhwali, has many regional dialects spoken in different places in Uttarakhand.
Almost all people who can speak and understand Kumaoni\Grahwali could most certainly also speak and understand Hindi,the official language of India. However, due to a number of reasons, these dialect\ languages shrinking very rapidly. UNESCO’s Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger designates Kumaoni as language in the unsafe category and which requires consistent conservation efforts.
In order to do something for the language\s; this booklet is a small effort to just pass on the commonly used lokoktiyan in the language\s to next generation.
