Quoting Gandhi, who has termed “Hindi as the language of Masses”, Dr Hemlata S Mohan, Chief Mentor, DPS Chas expressed to increase the use of Hindi which will help the language to realise the dreams of Bapu. She said, “DPS Chas is oriented about the importance of Hindi language and how celebrating the day helps in sustaining traditional values and glorifying them, to reinforce the importance of the Hindi language. This language has a rich history. The reason behind celebrating this day as Hindi Diwas is the fact that it was on 14th September 1949 that the Constituent Assembly of India, adopted Hindi in Devanagari script with dedication undergone notably by Beohar Rajendra Simha, Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Maithili Sharan Gupt, Kaka Kelkar and Seth Govind Das” besides other Hindi Scholars.
“The celebration of Hindi Diwas is an effective means to spread the message that we must learn to speak correct Hindi and be proud to speak it fluently too”, said Officiating Principal, P Shailaja Jayakumar.
