Dr. Imre Bangha, professor of Hindi language in prestigious Oxford university visited Jain Research Center, Jaipur. Dr. Bangha is a Hungarian and well versed in several Indian languages including Hindi and Bengali. Presently he is studying Maru-Gurjar, a preform of Hindi language existed between 13th and 16th century.

It is worth knowing that large numbers of Jain texts are written in this language. Gautam Rasa by Vinayprabhu Upadhyay of Khartar Gachchh is the most popular among all Maru-Gurjar literature.
