Moka(Mauritius): World Hindi Secretariat is going to celebrate its 8th anniversary of the official start of functioning on 15th February here in Moka.

The event is being organised by the High Commission of India to Mauritius with Ministry of Education, Human resources, Tertiary education and the scientific research of Mauritius jointly.

The event was originally scheduled to take place on 11th February but due to prevailing bad weather conditions, it had to be postponed to 15th. World Hindi Secretariat’s idea was presented during the 1975 World Hindi Conference in Nagpur by the then Mauritian Prime Minister Sir ShivSagar RamGulam.

The WHS was founded through a treaty between Indian and Mauritian Government. The functioning of WHS started in 2008 officially and since then it has been working for the global good of the Hindi.

Last year Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the WHS during his visit to Mauritius. He also inaugurated the construction work of the head office of WHS.

On the occasion of the Republic day, Indian High Commissioner to Mauritius mentioned the work of WHS in his address about the relations of both the countries.

Mauritius has a big Indian diaspora and Indian heritage which reflects through its language and culture.
