  Hi Gautam,

   

  That's a good info.

   

  I'm really curious to know

  -          Based on what this classification is made ? Is it based on any standard followed in India ? 

  -          Are all these variants have their corresponding written form ? I'm not sure as I've not seen any literature/web-site etc. in the radhi/kamrupi/barendri/ or jharkhandi form.

  -          Which one of them is related to the Bengali in Bangladesh ? I guess bn-IN-bangali

   

  In general my worry is if these 5 variants are not much in use in Bengali Literature/Web Site etc. is it needed to have these 5 different variants.

   

  Regards,

  Sourav
