And it is a must if we want to know more about other people or other country culture.There is so many document, not written in English. But written in a local language, like , Indonesian, Russian, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Farsi(Persian), Dari, Pushto(Pashto/Pushtu), Punjabi, Bengali, Gujarati(Gujurati/Gujerati), Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada,Malayalam, Sinhala(Sinhalese/Singhalese), Nepali, Tibetan, Myanmarese(Burmese), Bodo(Boro), Bhutanese, Sanskrit, Assamese, Kashmiri(Koshur), Konkani, Oriya, Dogri, Manipuri(Meitei).
