Hindi Diwas 2017

In India, Hindi Diwas is celebrated every year on 14th September. We all should know why the Hindi day is celebrated on this day. Because the country was liberated in 1947 and language status of India was a big question in front of the country. There were hundreds of languages and thousands of dialects in a vast country like India. A Constituent Assembly was constituted on December 6, 1946, to develop the constitution of independent India. Sachchidanand Sinha who is the interim president of the Constituent Assembly made Hindi the official language status of India. Later, Rajendra Prasad was elected its president. Dokra Bhimrao Ambedkar was the chairman of the draft drafting committee of the Constituent Assembly that is Committee on Constitutional Amendment. Hindi Diwas 2017 is celebrated in many schools with various competitions.
