Every year on September 14, India observes Hindi Diwas, also known as the National Hindi Day, to commemorate the day that the Indian Constituent Assembly made Hindi its official language. On January 26, 1950, the Indian Constitution officially recognised Hindi as the national language of India. Jawaharlal Nehru, the country’s first prime minister, chose this day to observe Hindi Diwas.
The Devanagari script is used to write Hindi, the fourth most spoken language in the world. The name of the language, which is a derivative of Sanskrit, is derived from the Persian word “Hind,” which means “country of the Indus River.” Other nations that speak Hindi include, among others, Nepal, Mauritius, Fiji, Suriname, and Guyana.
Many schools, universities, and other educational institutions observe this day by hosting a variety of programmes.
Amit Shah, the Union home minister, stated that the language “unites the entire nation in a thread of solidarity” as the nation observed Hindi Diwas. Before attending the second All India Official Language Conference held in Surat in honour of Hindi Diwas, he shared his opinions in a video on Twitter.
Happy “Hindi Diwas,” Shah tweeted in Hindi, saluting the great individuals who have contributed to the preservation and promotion of Hindi. “Official language Hindi unites the nation in the thread of unity. Hindi is a friend of all Indian languages. Modi’s government is committed to the parallel development of all local languages including Hindi.
Happy Hindi Day to all the citizens, the BJP tweeted on its official Twitter account.
“Hindi, renowned for the delicacy of its language, is currently spreading around the globe. Come forward and help us fulfil our responsibility to preserve and promote our native speech. All of you have a happy Hindi Day, the party tweeted.
On the occasion of Hindi Diwas, Rajnath Singh, the defence minister, wrote: “Heartfelt greetings to crores of Hindi fans around the nation and the world. The Indian motherland is represented by the dot of Hindi. It is good that language workers are working so hard to ensure that Hindi, along with all other Indian languages, thrives and becomes their international identity. all of my best wishes.
