The Bhagwadgomandal.com is a social cause aiming to preserve the richness of the Bhagwadgomandal which is an indispensable resource for connoisseurs and lovers of the Gujarati language. While countries like China, Myanmar take extensive initiatives to preserve their linguistic tradition this is the first ever initiative of its kind by any State of India.

Shri Ratilal Chandaria, founder of Gujaratilexicon, wishes to promote the use of the Gujarati language so that it does not go extinct. By digitizing the Bhagwadgomandal, the aim is to extend its appeal to today’s generation. Furthermore there is a huge segment of the Gujarati population that lives abroad. This initiative will enable Gujaratis living abroad to keep in touch with their roots and help understand and learn the language better. The authenticity of the Bhagwadgomandal.com can be attributed to the fact that it has been edited and checked by renowned literary personality, Dr. Kirtida Shah, Bhasha Bhavan, Gujarat University. Bhagwadgomandal is a good addition to Gujaratilexicon, which now has resources of nearly 35 lakh words and more than two million unique visitors
