History and Importance of Hindi Diwas

The Constituent Assembly of India chose Hindi as one of the two official languages of the Republic of India, thanks to the efforts of Beohar Rajendra Simha, Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Kaka Kalelkar, Maithili Sharan Gupt, and Seth Govind Das.

Beohar Rajendra Simha celebrated his 50th birthday on September 14, 1949, when his efforts culminated in the establishment of Hindi as an official language. As a result, this day has been designated as Hindi Diwas. The ruling was eventually overturned by India's constitution, which was ratified on January 26, 1950. Under Article 343 of the Constitution, Hindi written in Devnagari script was proclaimed one of the official languages.

The government's key concerns has been to empower the tribal community in the state.

The new efforts in the Himalayan area aimed at empowering members of the Gujjar-Bakerwal and Gaddi-Sippi groups appear to have alarmed Kashmiri lawmakers. These leaders are concerned that if these areas are given more influence, they would lose a significant portion of their voter base.

For the past 70 years, politicians have offered residents of indigenous communities verdant fields. They were told that they would be given all of their rights and treated equally to everyone else.

The Indonesian flag

China has formally opened another front in its bellicosity in the South China Sea, and practically forcing Jakarta to accept a dispute in the Natunas, where there is none, as the area concerned is within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Indonesia as per the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). Beijing claims that its "nine-dash" line, an artificial boundary invented by the CCP (Communist Party of China) that covers most of the South China Sea, giving it ownership of this entire maritime area extending to the EEZ of Indonesia in the Natuna Islands. The EEZ is an area extending up to 200 nautical miles from the baseline of a country. While other countries have a right of innocent passage in such territory, a country has special rights regarding exploration and use of maritime resources in its EEZ, to the exclusion of other powers. Jakarta has always stood up to China bullying her in the EEZ without declaring it loudly.
