A classical language, is a language that have a broad influence over an extended period of time, even after it is no longer a colloquial mother tongue in its original form.
Apart from this, the Indian government has certain requirements that need to be fulfilled like :
A body of ancient literature/texts, which is considered a valuable heritage by generations of speakers; The literary tradition be original and not borrowed from another speech community; The classical language and literature being distinct from modern, there may also be a discontinuity between the classical language and its later forms or its offshoots.
In 2005, Sanskrit was accorded the status of a classical language.
In 2008, Telugu and Kannada were accorded the status.
You can see where this is going.
Not surprisingly, there is a demand for Bengali to be included in the list. I am pretty sure even Marathi fulfills the above requirements, but currently we are beating some North Indian guy. Catch ya later.
You know what is going to happen the day any language is rejected. The usual bandhs, riots, loss of life, property, economy, etc. And it is unfair that the other languages are not given the status because now it is at a point where it is just about pride. According this to any language apart from Sanskrit was going to start this. Sanskrit is fine though. Firstly, no one speaks it as their mother tongue to actually feel proud or superior to anyone. And even if there is someone, who the heck is going to understand what he says !

I think we can all agree that the fate of Saawariya has proven some things beyond doubt. Hope Levis has better reasons to sell their product.
And when asked what was the first time he ‘unbuttoned’ :
Anyone who knows Akshay and Tamil would say : poratiyaar ke vaadyaar.
