Every year Hindi Diwas is celebrated on the 14th of September across the country to remember the historic occasion of Hindi. It was started celebrating when the Devnagri script which is written in Hindi was approved as an official language on the 14th of September by the Constituent Assembly in the year 1949. Hindi Diwas is one of the major events to be celebrated annually all over India. It is observed on the 14th of September every year to encourage the use of Hindi by Indians for most of the time and most of the daily tasks.
This day is celebrated with great fanfare across India and many programs are also organized simultaneously. The sole purpose of celebrating this day is to maintain the importance of Hindi in India so that it will continue for years. So we can say that Hindi Diwas is not just an event but also a celebration of the identity of India as well. Today all of us heard but I will not talk about the history and Origin of Hindi and its status as an official language in the Constitution of our Country. Many competitions, speeches, debates, and essay writing competitions are organized. Hindi Pakhwada is also celebrated in schools and colleges as well as in government offices.
It is celebrated all through the country to show the importance of the Hindi language to the Indians. This language has a big history that directly belongs to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European language family. After being an independent country, the Indian Government made a goal to standardize the Hindi language with orthography and grammar.
Devanagari script is used to bring uniformity in writing. Now, Hindi is spoken in many countries of the world which includes Pakistan, Mauritius, Trinidad, Surinam, and many other countries.
Every year, It is celebrated as an event on September 14, because the Hindi language was first adopted 14th of September in 1949 by the Constituent Assembly of India as the official language of the Republic of India. The decision of making the Hindi language as an official language of India was legalized by the Constitution of India (which came into effect in 1950, on the 26th of January).
According to the Indian Constitution, it was written in the Devanagari script and was first adopted under Article 343 as the official language of India. There are many programs to be organized on the day. All these programs remain centered at motivating people towards the use of Hindi. The most prominent event of this day is held in schools for the student. The children, and especially students, are told to have respect for their native language Hindi and use it in their daily practices.
The institutions also organize some programs for the students like Essay Competition, Quiz Competition, Debates, and Hindi Typing Tests, etc. The ‘Raj-Bhasha Award’ is also distributed by the Government of India on the eve of the day of the event.
