Happy Vishwa Hindi DivasWorld Hindi Day or Vishwa Hindi Divas is being celebrated on this day that is January 10th. The first World Hindi Conference was conducted in 1975 in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India, inaugurated this conference on this date. From that day onwards this day is celebrated to commemorate the anniversary of that conference as Vishwa Hindi Divas. The main aim of observing this day is to promote the Hindi language worldwide.
The word Hindi is a Persian word. Hind means the 'land of Indus River'. The language is derived from Sanskrit. The language is written in Devnagari script.
This language is spoken in different countries including Nepal, Bangladesh, Fiji, Mauritius, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago in addition to India.
I wish all the members of ISC a happy Vishwa Hindi Divas.
