History and Significance of Hindi Diwas: Pay Tribute to the Essence of Our Devanagari

Our mother tongue is our identity, and we should proudly speak in Hindi without embarrassment. So, let's celebrate this Hindu Diwas together and feel proud of your national language.

दुनिया में देश को एक अनोखी पहचान दिलाकर
हिंदी हर देशप्रेमी का सर गर्व से ऊँचा कर जाती है
सभी धर्मो को जोड़ मानव धर्म जगाकर
हिंदी हर भारतवासी को भारतीय बनाती है

Hindi Diwas is celebrated on the 14th of September every year to honour the 3rd most spoken language in the world.

Hindi is a language where we can express ourselves at our best and confidently. The Hindi Language gives a feeling of oneness and closeness to everyone. This provides us with the impact of how we can express our feelings best in our mother tongue without being hesitant.

Brief Introduction to History of Hindi

हिन्दी शब्दों 'अच्छा', 'बड़ा दिन', 'बच्चा', 'सूर्य नमस्कार' और यहा तक कि संविधान और आत्मनिर्भर जैसे शब्दों को भी ऑक्सफर्ड डिक्शनरी में शामिल किया गया है।

The language comes from ancient languages like Sanskrit, which gives it a dignified position in the world. Mahatma Gandhi named Hindi a "language of unity".

Importance of our Mother Tongue

हिन्दी की खास बात यह है कि इसमें जिस शब्द को जिस तरह से उच्चारित किया जाता है, उसी तरह लिखा भी जाता है।

We know how the importance of Hindi is degrading as the generation is upgrading and getting modern. You must have seen mothers scolding their kids to speak English and conversating with them in English. True, isn't it? Yes! Nobody would ever know the value of Hindi, what it used to be for ages.

Hindi day holds a prominent role in the creation of India's history. It was only a language, but it still helped India to gain unity and individuality in international aspects.

Even instead of discouraging people who are well-versed in Hindi and mocking them for not being frank in English, everybody should respect and encourage them. Even in schools, it is a common sight, so organizing Hindi Diwas speech ceremonies is a traditional way of promoting enthusiasm for Hindi day.

Recognition of Devanagari Script

यह जानना भी ज़रूरी है कि 14 सितंबर को हिन्दी दिवस लेकिन 10 जनवरी को विश्व हिन्दी दिवस मनाया जाता है।

It became the official language of the Union of India in 1950. Under Article 343, the Constitution of India named it 'Devanagari Script'. It has 120 languages, 14 vowels, 33 consonants, and 43 characters.

Devanagari is as important as the language of English. Giving our mother tongue a preference is another way of respecting it.

How Has Hindi Expanded Indian Culture and Tradition Worldwide?

हिन्दी भारत की आधिकारिक भाषाओं में से एक है और आमतौर पर उत्तर भारत के लोग इसका इस्तेमाल करते हैं। इसके अलावा हिन्दी मॉरीशस, फिजी, गुयाना, सूरीनाम, त्रिनिदाद और टोबैगो और नेपाल जैसे देशों में भी बोली जाती है।

It has influenced the world to celebrate "The World Hindi Day" internationally, this day is observed on 10th January every year.

People follow Indian culture and tradition worldwide by worshipping Indian gods and enchanting shlokas in Hindi.
And foreigners' keen interest in learning is another proud moment for our mother tongue.

Hindi has a sophisticated accent making it one prestigious spoken language that lingers through hearts, even internationally.

More people in India today have excelled in other languages, and only a few gems of Hindi writers and speakers are left today. To promote India in the world today, we must acknowledge Hindi and the identity of India it creates in the world.

India's identity is the Hindi language. Feel privileged and proud that you are from the era you learnt Hindi, your mother tongue. Let's start from within you and make Hindi more comfortable around you. And do not be hesitant about speaking Hindi, as many can converse in English, but only a few know the essence of our national language.

Hope this blog helps you understand the cultural importance of our mother tongue. Celebrate this Hindi Diwas with utmost dedication and enthusiasm, as this day should hold a special place in every Indian's heart.

WoodenStreet wishes you "A very happy Hindi Diwas".
