India is one of the most diverse countries in the world comprising numerous religions, customs, traditions, cuisines, and languages. Hindi is one of the most prominent languages of India and as of 2001, there were approximately 26 crore native speakers of the language, which makes it one of the most widely spoken languages in the country. Hindi got an exalted status in India when on 14th September 1949, it was adopted as the official language of the country. Thus, 14th September began to be celebrated as Hindi Diwas. We celebrate Hindi Diwas with a lot of pride in our hearts as it is our national language and has given us our unique identity. The day is celebrated with massive enthusiasm all over the country especially in educational institutions and government offices. In today’s world, when people tend to forget their roots, Hindi Diwas plays a very significant role by propagating as well as promoting Hindi language and encouraging everyone to feel proud in speaking in this language.
