World Hindi Meet: A step towards Hindi revival

By NewsGram Staff Writer

As part of the various efforts being made to revive the status of the Hindi language, recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured that it would be among the three languages that will dominate the digital media.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday described Hindi as a common thread that can unite everyone. He also advocated the idea of using Hindi as the language for administrative purposes during a session titled, Hindi Mein Prashashan (Using Hindi in administration) at the ongoing three-day World Hindi Meet. He believes that the administration should use a language that can be understood by everyone and thus the use of simple Hindi should be encouraged.

In this direction, India’s external affairs ministry suggested that the involvement of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan can be a big help.

When a section of people questioned the logic behind inviting the superstar to the 10th World Hindi Meet, MEA stated that he can easily influence masses.

“If Hindi songs are being heard in the Middle East today, it is due to Bollywood’s influence. Amitabh has been the most popular actor of Bollywood of the 1970’s. He is looked upon as an inspirational personality even today. If he comes, it would benefit the Hindi language,” said external affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup.

According to what the ministry of external affairs (MEA) initially stated, the inaugural function of the World Hindi Meet was attended by 700 journalists, 1,540 guests and 2,100 special guests.

116 representatives from different parts of the globe are participating actively in the ongoing 10th Vishwa Hindi Sammelan, an official said on Friday.

Vikas Swarup, the spokesperson of MEA, informed the reporters that 116 participants from 39 countries have come to attend the World Hindi Meet, though he chose not to give any further details when asked how many of them are from the embassies.

However, sources reveal that most of the people participating in the ongoing meet are from the embassies.
