A short Speech for Hindi Diwas – English Vs Hindi.
The people of the country must be celebrating Hindi Day ( Hindi Divas ) on 14th of September. There shall be meetings and gatherings to promote Hindi Language, curse the system that has caused such a big damage to this language which was once the glory of the country and now we have to persuade the people to use it otherwise it may go the way as Sanskrit.
Now what is it that has caused this miserable plight to Hindi? The attitude of the people towards it or the government’s apathy to this age-old language of the country. There are various reasons for this poor condition of this language in its own land.
