Hindi Diwas

On 14th September 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India had adopted Hindi as the official language of India. To show its importance and celebrated its mark of acknowledgement, we celebrate Hindi Diwas on the 14th of September every year.
The language is one of the oldest languages and derives much of its academic vocabulary from the Sanskrit language and is written in Devanagari script. The history of Hindi belongs to Indo-Aryan branch of Indo-European language family. The Persian and the Mughals added their own flavour to the Hindi language. After independence, the Indian Government set about standardizing Hindi with rules of standardization of grammar and orthography, using the Devanagari script to bring about uniformity in writing, improve some characters and set up diacritics to express sounds. This language has travelled a long way to make its presence felt globally. Hindi is spoken in many parts of the world and is one of the main languages in Mauritius, Surinam, Trinidad and few other countries. It is the mother tongue of 258 million people and is the fifth largest language in the world. Hindi takes on the true spirit of Indians in terms of acceptance and is also referred to as a 'link language' which unites the diverse India. On Hindi Diwas many schools, colleges and offices celebrate the day with special programmes and competitions in which students actively participate. Hindi poems, story recitations, vocabulary quizzes are held on the occasion of the Hindi Diwas with great fervour. People promote the use of Hindi language among each other. Department of Official Language, Ministry of Home Affairs has organised Hindi Day or Hindi Diwas celebration at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on 14th September 2013.
