Swaraj, who arrived with minister of state VK Singh, reviewed the preparations in a meeting with senior officials, organizing committee members and BJP representatives at her Bhopal residence. She also inspected the venue for the summit.

Over 5,000 representatives from different parts of the country and abroad are expected to participate in the Vishwa Hindi Sammelan or the World Hindi Summit.

10th World Hindi Conference:

The 10th World Hindi Conference is being organized in Bhopal this year from September 10 to 12 in collaboration with Ministry of External Affairs and Madhya Pradesh Government.

This is the third time when the conference is being held in India. The first World Hindi Conference was organised in Nagpur from 10th to 12th January, 1975.

Lajpat Ahuja, the rector of Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism, and the coordinator of the Conference proclaimed with enthusiasm that the exhibition will be showcasing the growing influence of Hindi in the IT sector. Tech industry giants like Google, Microsoft, and Apple will be participating in the event. He further added that these companies will inform the participants how Hindi is turning into a computer language.

The aim of this conference is to promote the use of Hindi language in the field of science and technology, and also explain how Hindi can be incorporated into IT, media, administration and the foreign policy sector.  It would also have a series of paper presenters. The main theme of the conference is “Hindi Jagat: Vistaravamsambhavnai”.

The event will be followed by several Hindi book and magazine releases.

    World Hindi Summit is a sign of self confidence and germination of self respect in Indian system of Governance which is distinctly absent among the 10% Anglophonic Indians who are in fact ruling the country as an appendage of the West. Attention must be diverted to the growing sentiment among non-Hindi speaking communities who dutifully but shamelessly imitate everything Anglo-American but enthusiastically preach – HINDI IMPERIALISM in connivance with their Western Patrons. Summit should address this problem as well.

Hindi is not a pan-India language and giving up acting in south Indian films would be a “very stupid” move, actor Taapsee Pannu said on Saturday, insisting that she did not use Tamil and Telugu films as a stepping stone to gain entry into Bollywood.

Pannu also said that few actors manage to crossover different genres of cinema, made in varying langauges and regions and get known in small centres in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana as well as in the Hindi-speaking belt.

“I think few actors make that crossover successfully and I don’t want to leave that position. It would be very stupid of me to leave that market. It is perceived that Hindi is a pan-India thing, but I do not think so. I will continue to work in South,” Pannu said.

“South has taught me what film-making is. It made me an actor. So there is a sense of gratitude, that I have. At no point of time, I used it as a stepping stone to get into Bollywood. They (South Indian films) taught me what light is, what camera is. I cannot leave it,” Pannu also said. (IANS)
