World Hindi Day is celebrated on 10th January to honor the language. The theme of this day is making Hindi a part of public opinion but this does not mean that one has to leave their mother tongue.
Vishwa Hindi Diwas: History
The first Vishwa Hindi Diwas conference was organized on 10th January 1975 in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India. A total of 122 representatives from 30 countries participated in this grand event. This day is observed in India since 2003. The Ministry of External Affairs began the tradition of celebrating World Hindi Diwas in other countries in 2006 with the aim of promoting the Hindi language across the world.
