Hindi Diwas 2020, significance, history, date, importance:


 Every year on 14 September, Hindi Day is celebrated.  This day is celebrated with great enthusiasm in India.  Like other festivals, Hindi day is equally important for the people of India.  This day is celebrated in different ways in schools, colleges and government offices.  Many programs are also organized.  September 14 is celebrated as Hindi Day across the country.  But do you know why this day has been specially chosen to celebrate Hindi Day?  Let's tell the history behind celebrating Hindi Day on 14 September.

History of Hindi Day:


 When our country got independence from British rule in 1947, then a big language concern arose in front of them.  India is a large country with a diverse culture.  There are hundreds of languages ​​which are spoken in the country and there are more than thousands of dialects.  On 6 December 1946, the Constituent Assembly was convened to prepare the Constitution of independent India.  Sachchidanand Sinha was appointed as the interim director of the Constituent Assembly, later replacing Dr. Rajendra Prasad.  Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar was the chairman of the drafting committee of the Constituent Assembly.  The Assembly presented the final draft on 26 November 1949.  Therefore, independent India got its constitution fully on 26 January 1950.
 But even then, the concern of choosing an official language for the constitution was still unresolved.  After a long debate and discussion, Hindi and English were chosen as the official languages ​​of independent India.  On 14 September 1949, the Constituent Assembly accepted Hindi written in Devanagari script and English as an official language.  Later, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru announced to celebrate this day as Hindi Day in the country.  The first Hindi day was celebrated on 14 September 1953.

 Importance of Hindi Day:


 A few years after independence, the newly-formed government of India was trying to unite myriad linguistic, cultural and religious groups residing in that vast country.  The integration of perfection required India to have a unique national flavor.  Since the country did not have a single national language of its own, it was decided by the administration that Hindi could be the language they were looking for.  This proved to be the ideal solution at that time.  At that time, Hindi was the language spoken in most parts of North India.
