It initially started to develop in the 7th century AD and spread consistency in the 10th. Nearly all the more beginning literature is in verse and a language other than Khari Boli. The end, on which the current standard Hindi language and Urdu language are based, was not generally used as a literary language continuously at the end of the 17th century.

  2. Bhakti Kal poems between the 14th–18th century
  3. Riti or Srngar Kal poems between the 18th–20th century
  4. Adhunik Kal between 20th century onwards


The Hindi literature was written in languages such as Awadhi, Kannauji, Khariboli, Braj, Bundeli, as well as Magahi, Bhojpuri, Marwari, and Chhattisgarhi.
