International mother language day (2022) is celebrated on 21 February to promote linguistic diversity and mother languages globally. During the freedom movement, Hindi Has Grown From Mother Language and literary language to the national language. It is a language of independence and self-respect. As a result, Hindi got the official language status in the constitution. The next step in the golden journey of Hindi is to become the language of self-reliance. The language of self-reliance means the language of education, the language of knowledge, the language of science, the language of employment, the language of offices and courts.
International Mother Language Day 2022
Hindi has made a decisive step forward towards the peak phase of the linguistic development journey. Language According to the Vedas, one’s “teaching” and “teaching in it” are essential for a language’s overall and ultimate development. If we turn the pages of history, for the first time at the university level. In the year 1922, the teaching of Hindi was started at the University of Calcutta.
Since then, after 100 years, there has been a system of teaching Hindi in more than 200 universities of the world outside India. Except for a few states of India, Hindi is being taught in almost all the state universities. Notably, the matter is no longer limited to “Teaching Hindi” but has also become “Teaching in Hindi.”. Now not only the traditional subjects of universities but also in engineering entrance exams and studies in Hindi etc. have started in Indian languages. The same is true for medicine and management.
Indian Institute of Translation and Interpretation is being established to make authentic material in the subjects of knowledge science. National Education Policy 2020 is memorable for Indian languages like Hindi etc. We will start seeing its far-reaching results in eight to 10 years. Along with the self-reliance of Hindi, it will also help take the nation towards self-reliance. Apart from education, another essential basis for the self-reliance of Hindi will be the connection of Hindi with the modern economic world. Hindi was established long ago as the language of the market trade of the country. Barring exceptions, shopkeepers from north to south and east to the west do their work outside their state in Hindi.
