It was a proud moment for all the Indians when the Constituent Assembly of India on 14th September 1949 decided to recognize Hindi as the official language of the nation. After that on 26th January 1950, the Constitution also approved the same and Hindi (written in Devanagari script) became the national language of India.

The day on which Constituent Assembly adopted Hindi as its official language i.e 14th September is celebrated as Hindi Diwas every year. This day is celebrated with great excitement in many schools, colleges, universities, and offices. These institutions organise several competitions to celebrate this day such as Hindi debate, poetry, elocution, storytelling, and more.

On this day, Rajbhasha awards are distributed to several departments, nationalized banks, and ministries as well. Apart from that certain awards are given to people by the President of India for their work in Hindi related fields at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi.

This is a great day for all the Indians as it motivates every Indian with patriotic essence. This day connects us with our culture as well as with our mother tongue which is losing its importance in its own country. In our country, people who speak English are assumed to be more sophisticated. These people are given more value in various fields as well as in job interviews over others. This day gives us great opportunities to remind the youth about the importance of our national language and culture.

In the end, everyone should understand that the Hindi language is declining at a much higher rate than before. People are giving more preferences to foreign languages. So we should celebrate this tremendous day as it provides ample opportunities to know the significance of the Hindi language and need of mother tongue.

Always remember: if we stay grounded and connected with our roots, we remain unstoppable.
