ଅଭିଧାନ.ଭାରତ website was unveiled on the second Monday of Shravan month of Vikram Samvat 2077. Vinod Singh is the founder and caretaker of this website. For a long time, Vinod wanted to create a comprehensive online dictionary of Bhartiya languages that would be entirely in Bhartiya languages. Lockdowns due to Coronavirus provided some spare time and Vinod started to work on his dream. That work culminated in the form of Amarkosh. Initially there were only Hindi and English dictionaries on it, but gradually more Bhartiya languages were added.
Culture and language complement each other. Without nurturing native language, it is almost impossible for the culture to survive. When a language becomes extinct, the culture associated with it also goes extinct. Unfortunately, Bharatiya languages have been left behind in the race for modernity. It is imperative to adopt modern techniques for the preservation and promotion of Bharatiya languages. ଅଭିଧାନ.ଭାରତ and its affiliated websites are an effort in this direction.
The dictionaries available on Amarkosh are mainly based on the following sources. Although the material provided here may differ from the original. As we have added new words and meanings or made other changes as needed.
Dictionaries of Bharatiya languages are mainly based on Indo Wordnet compiled by Center For Indian Languages Technology, IIT Bombay. Information about a language and its specific source is available below.
English dictionary is primarily based on WordNet 3.0 compiled by Princeton University
