World Hindi Day : 10 January


 World Hindi Day : 10 January


Every year 10th January is celebrated as World Hindi Day to create awareness about the language of Hindi across the World and to present Hindi as an international language.

The 1st World Hindi Conference was inaugurated by the then prime minister Indira Gandhi in Nagpur on January 10, 1975.

To commemorate the occasion, the government of India since 2006 is celebrating 10th January as World Hindi Day.

World Hindi Day is different from Hindi Diwas. National Hindi Diwas is celebrated on Sept 14 because it was the day Hindi was recognised as an official language.

Hindi is the fourth most spoken language of the world. Various constitutional provisions like Article 120, Article 210, Article 343, Article 344 and Articles from 348 to 351 are aimed at the promotion of Hindi.
