Indians on 14 September observe the National Hindi Diwas. The Republic of India officially recognised Hindi as one of its official languages on this day in 1949. On September 14, 1949, the Indian Constitution, which was written in Devanagari, declared Hindi to be the official language of the country.
Additionally, India had its first Hindi Day (Hindi Diwas) on September 14, 1953. Hindi is the native language of over 425 million people, while it is the second language of roughly 120 million people.
States like Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, and Punjab are among those where Hindi is most often spoken. Regarding countries, Hindi is also spoken in Nepal, Fuji, Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, and Mauritius.
The Hindi Diwas is celebrated in part to counter the nation’s inclination towards using English more and more. Hindi was referred to as the people’s language by Mahatma Gandhi. In India, numerous literary and cultural activities are held in honour of Hindi Diwas. Aside from that, during Hindi Diwas, ministries, departments, public sector organisations, and public sector banks receive prizes such as the Rajbasha Kirti Puraskar and the Rajbhasha Gaurav Puraskar for their contributions to and promotion of Hindi.
Simha, an Indian author who battled valiantly to get Hindi to the list of official languages, was born on this day as well.
