Happy Hindi Diwas 2020: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, other ministers and leaders greeted the people of India on Hindi Diwas today.

Hindi is spoken by around 258 million people and is recognised as the fourth ‘most spoken; language in the world.

On Hindi Diwas, PM Modi took to Twitter and wished the people. “…Hearty congratulations to all the linguists who contributed to the development of Hindi…,” the Prime Minister wrote in Hindi.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah, in his greetings, on Hindi Diwas said, “…The various languages and dialects of India are its strength…’Hindi’ has been working to unify the whole nation…”. Mr Shah added that “Hindi is an unbreakable part of Indian culture. It has been an effective and powerful medium of national unity and identity since the freedom struggle. The greatest strength of Hindi is that it’s scientific, original and simple.” he wrote on Twitter.

In another tweet, the Union Home Minister further said, “With the new education policy of the Narendra Modi government, along with Hindi, the other Indian languages will also develop.” Amit Shah is set to deliver a message on the occasion of Hindi Diwas today, according to a press release of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal wrote on the microblogging site, “…language plays an important role in the social, political and cultural landscape of a country…the Hindi language plays a key role in establishing unity in diversity”.

On Hindi Diwas, schools across India organise activities to encourage the use of the language. Every year from September 14-21, the Rajbhasha Week or Hindi Week is celebrated. Essay and poetry competitions, quiz, art and other activities are organized to celebrate Hindi Diwas. This year, of course, most of the activities are online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
