Hindi Diwas is celebrated annually on September 14 to promote the language and its use throughout the country. The first Hindi Day was celebrated on September 14, 1953, after that Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru decided to celebrate this day as Hindi Diwas. On September 14, 1949, the Constituent Assembly accepted Hindi in the Devanagari script as the official language of India.
Hindi Day is celebrated in India through seminars, competitions and other activities in schools and other educational institutions. The impromptu speech and essay writing in Hindi are also organized in an effort to promote the language.
As part of the 2021 Indian Divas Celebration, the Hindi Film Division monitors Pakhwada from September 1-15 to promote the use of practical Hindi in official work. To encourage officers and officials to work in Hindi, various competitions were organized. A government statement added that dictation, essay writing, speech contests and quizzes were among the few.
While September 14 is celebrated as the Hindu Diwas or National Indian Divas of India, January 10 is celebrated as the International Day of India. International Hindi Day or Vishwa Hindi Diwas is celebrated on January 10 of each year, with the aim of promoting the use of the Hindi language around the world.
January 10 marks the first World Congress of India which was held in 1975, in Nagpur, Maharashtra. In 2006, then-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared January 10 as India’s International Day. Another goal for this occasion is to introduce Hindi as an international language.
Wishing everyone at the Diwas Festival today, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) said: “Hindi is not just our language. Hindi is also our identity.”
