Its not a language of Khan.. I am sure a lot of khans cannot speak Pashto..

Its just one of the thousands of local languages in the world which are confined to a small area within a country...

In the contest of "my language is older than yours", it seems you can't beat Tamil language, which is the oldest written language still in usage without huge alterations or changes
source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamil_language and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_language

If we just speak about oldest languages, even those not spoken nowadays, then that would be Sumerian, oldest writings. If you are into very loose definition of writing, Vinca (a village in Serbia) script is the oldest found so far, goes back to Neolithic.

But it's not about the age, it's about how you use it, right ?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
