Hindi Diwas is celebrated every year on the 14th of September to commemorate the adoption of Hindi as one of the official languages of India. National Public School-NORTH celebrated Hindi Diwas with great enthusiasm on Friday 15th September, showcasing the rich linguistic heritage of our nation.
Hindi Diwas celebrations began with a vibrant Nukkad Natak (Street Play) that was both entertaining and thought-provoking. The play was performed by the students of Grade VI and VII who portrayed a pressing social issue faced by the society and country in general about cleanliness.
Students spoke fluently and effectively in Hindi. ‘Nukkad Natak’ received thunderous applause from the audience as it effectively conveyed the message, besides being entertaining.
Following the Nukkad Natak, students recited – dohas of Sant Kabir das and Tulsi das and shared the meaning of dohas in Hindi with the audience. These dohas not only demonstrated the beauty of the Hindi language but also highlighted the moral values embedded in them. Students of grade IV asked few riddles in Hindi to the audience. It encouraged students to think quickly, enhancing their command over the language and answering the riddles correctly. Apart from the main highlights, Hindi Diwas celebration also featured several cultural performances, including Hindi songs, speeches and dance performances.
In the teacher talk segment, one of the senior Hindi teachers delivered an enlightening speech about the significance of Hindi and its role in shaping the cultural identity of India.
Hindi Diwas celebration was a grand success that not only fostered a sense of pride in our national language but also promoted unity in diversity, a core value of our nation. We hope that this celebration will continue to inspire students to cherish and uphold the linguistic diversity that is an integral part of our nation’s identity.
