Sept 13,

Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh today greeted the people all over the State on the occasion of ‘Hindi Diwas’ falling on September 14. In his message on the eve of Hindi Day he said that a nation is identified by its National Language (Rashtra Bhasha). Hindi is our ‘Rashtra Bhasha’ and it binds the nation together. Unity in Diversity is our rich cultural ethos and there are various dialects of Hindi and every dialect has its own significance. Dr Singh said that literary giants and artistes play a crucial role in enriching the language.

Hindi is the ‘Rashtra Bhasha’ as stated in the Constitution. Hindi should be used in all government offices and citizens should make efforts to spread Hindi as Rashtra Basha at all levels. The Chief Minister sought co-operation from all right-thinking citizens of the state in this direction. The Constitution Assembly on September 14, 1949 unanimously resolved to give Hindi the status of ‘Rajbasha’ and thereafter every year September 14 is observed as Hindi Diwas to commemorate the occasion.

Chief Minister said that Indians settled all over the globe whether in Mauritius, Fiji, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Surinam, United Arab Emirates (Dubai), China, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and nations in South-East Asia, England, America and Australia- are making Hindi popular in their adopted countries. According to a survey Hindi is being taught in various schools-colleges in 40 countries. Hindi is the second most widely spoken language after Chinese Mandarin in the entire world.
