Importance of Hindi for India
Speaking on the occasion, the President extended his greetings and felicitations to fellow countrymen on the occasion of Hindi Diwas (September 14).
He said Hindi is the soul of Indianess and plays an important role as a link language. We have to encourage translations of Hindi literature into other Indian regional languages and vice-versa. This will deepen relations between Hindi and regional languages, he stated.
In a sharp contrast, recently English speaking classes for the residents of President’s Estate were started by President’s Secretariat in association with Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) as a welfare measure.
The President called upon people to learn historical, cultural and literary aspects of different cultures. He said when people of India will come to understand that our past and present is one, our literature and culture is one, national unity will be strengthened.
हिंदी भारतीयता की चेतना है तथा सभी प्रांतीय भाषाओं की संपर्क भाषा की भूमिका निभाती है #राष्ट्रपति
