Hindi in the primary language of about 40% of the population, and has official status. English has associate official status. Hindi gets funding, and compulsory use in central government departments, companies and institutes. Proposals to give more languages official status have been forgotten.

The mongoloid people face hostility outside the northeast. Skin color has huge social currency. Black people face hostility almost everywhere. White people get special treatment.
