Celebrating the pride of our nation-“Hindi Divas” today!

Celebrating the pride of our nation marking the significance of Hindi Divas.
Every year 14th September marks the significance of the day by celebrating Hindi divas across the country. The Constituent Assembly adopted Hindi as the official language of India. It is amongst one of the oldest languages which derives much of its academic terminology from the Sanskrit language, written in Devanagari script.


To showcase the importance of the language most of the educational institutes organize poems, essay and recitation competitions and encourage students to take part.


It is heard that the word ‘Hindi’ came from the Persian word ‘Hind’, which means the land of the Indus River. Raja Harishchandra released his first Hindi film in 1913 directed by Dadasaheb Phalke.


Hindi Diwas was established due to the efforts of several stalwarts who rallied and lobbied in favour of Hindi across the country. The most notable among them were Beohar Rajendra Simha, Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Kaka Kalelkar, Maithili Sharan Gupt, and Seth Govind Das are the ones who toiled hard to make Hindi as the official language of the country.


The President of our country tributes this day by presenting Rajbhasha awards to the deserving candidates for their contribution towards the language, at a ceremony in Delhi. We wish to develop this language so that it may serve as a medium of expression for all the cultures of our country.
