The BITS-PILANI QUIZZING FORUM!

Formed by the fusion of the Aryan language Marathi and the Dravidian languages Kannada and Telugu and whose base is Punjabi, though now a dialect this was once an accepted language. What language?

This was a toughie. The answer is Dakhni or Hyderabadi Hindi.
Punjabi is the base of Urdu, however when the Muslim kings of Deccan and North had a battle, the Deccan Kings broke off and formed their own language. Quli Qutub Shah was actually a great Dakhni writer.
