The Gujarati language is centred on the state of Gujarat in western India. Mahatma Gandhi was born in this part of India, and spoke and wrote in Gujarati.
Gujarati is spoken by roughly 48 million speakers in around 18 territories. Outside of India, there are significant numbers of speakers in United Republic of Tanzania, the United States, the United Kingdom, Uganda, Pakistan and Malaysia, and smaller numbers in several countries in southern and eastern Africa.
