Haryana

The 'LAND' of Hari.

...

Haryana is one of the smallest states in India with an area of 44, 212 square kilometres. The state of Haryana is landlocked and surrounded by Himachal Pradesh to the north, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in the east, Punjab to the north-west and Rajasthan in the south and south-west. The Yamuna river and the Shiwalik hills border the north-east. The south and south-west region is semi-arid, and an extension of the Aravalli ranges runs through parts of Mahendragarh, Rewari, Gurgaon, Bhiwani and Jhajjar districts.

" Haryana is divided into five cultural regions; Ahirwal, Mewat, Bagar, Nardak and Khadar "


Ahirwal, in the southwest, borders Rajasthan and is home to the Ahirs. Mewat, also in the south, and also bordering Rajasthan, is home to the Muslim Meo community. Bagar, in the west, derives its name from the Bagari dialect, which is shared across the border with Rajasthan. The Nardak region in the north has close ties with Himachal Pradesh, and many people speak Pahari in the districts of Panchkula, Yamunanagar and some parts of Ambala. Elsewhere in Nardak, Punjabi is spoken among the communities of Punjabis and Jats. The heartland of Haryana is Khadar. The fertile soil near the Western Yamuna Canal and Satluj Yamuna Link Canal helps the farmers to grow commercial crops like rice, sugarcane and wheat. The dialect Khadi boli is spoken here.
