Hindi Diwas is celebrated across the country on 14 September. On this day in 1949, Hindi got the status of an official language in the Indian Constitution. That is why we remember Hindi a little more on this day every year. Since Hindi is the language of the heart, the language of the senses, the language of living, the language of culture, the language of connecting the society, the mother tongue, how can there be only one day for such a language! Just as a house without a mother, family and children of that house is incomplete, in the same way India and Indianness are incomplete without Hindi language. To remove this incompleteness, we have to live in Hindi and that too not for show, but to connect it with the heart.

In today’s time, for the survival of a language or dialect, it is not only necessary to make literature but also to make it the language of business, science and employment. The language which is not able to give employment to the common man, gradually gets reduced to a narrow scope. The biggest reason for English being an international language is business.
