This volume is the outcome of research carried out by the Indus Project of the national Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN) at Kyoto.
   This Atlas is published to advance the research on modern languages in South Asia, which is not very active at present and lacks complete and thorough language descriptions. Additional books are planned describing some of the major South Asia languages.
   The maps and tables presented in this book use data available from Censuses and other sources covering different parts of South Asia, such as: British India (1931), Republic of India (1961-2001), Provinces of East and West Pakistan (1961), Islamic Republic of Pakistan (1998), People's Republic of Bangladesh (1974, 2001), Kingdom of Nepal (2001), Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka (1981, 2001), Republic of the Maldives (2006), Kingdom of Bhutan (2001), The World Atlas of Language Structures (2005) Ethnologue 16th edition (2009).
