Difference between World Hindi Day and Hindi Divas

WEB DESK

There is some confusion over World Hindi Day and Hindi Divas. We must know the difference between the special Days.

World Hindi Day 2020 or Vishwa Hindi Divas is celebrated every year on January 10. The day commemorates the anniversary of the first World Hindi Conference held in Nagpur of January 10, 1975, which saw 122 delegates from 30 countries participating in it. The aim of the conference was to promote Hindi language worldwide.

World Hindi Day was first celebrated in 2006 by former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh with an aim to promote Hindi language across the world.

World Hindi Day is also celebrated by Indian embassies in different parts of the world. Special programmes are organised by both government and non-government organisations to promote the Hindi language.

National Hindi Divas

World Hindi Day is different from Hindi Divas which is celebrated on September 14 every year. World Hindi Day is celebrated to promote Hindi language at the global stage, whereas, National Hindi Divas is observed across the country.

The National Hindi Divas is observed to mark adaptation of Hindi written in Devanagari script as the Official Language of the Union by the Constituent Assembly on September 14, 1949.
