“Let’s spread the significance of our native language everywhere throughout the world.”
Hindi Diwas is celebrated every year on 14 September to pay tribute to the official language of India. Hindi was adopted as the official language by the Constituent Assembly on September 14, 1949. The celebration of Hindi Diwas stands as a patriotic reminder to the Indians, of their common roots. On this occasion, our School held various activities.
The Pre School children had a wonderful storytelling session from the Panchatantra. The story chosen was "Laalchi Sher'. They recited popular Hindi rhymes for children like -'Bandar Mama', 'Humne Teen Cheezen Dekhi', ' Aaloo Kachalu', 'Hathi Raja' with voice modulations and expression.
The Pre Primary children celebrated Hindi Diwas to promote, dedicate and propagate the language which arouses patriotic feelings. The children were told about the importance of the mother tongue; they drew the Banyan tree and wrote Swars and Vyanjans(vowels and consonants) which they have learnt so far in class. The children also sang melodious rhymes in Hindi.
The class I students celebrated Hindi Diwas with much excitement. They chose their favourite Hindi matras and made a collage depicting the things, objects or animals that have the particular matra in their spellings. They pasted pictures from old magazines, newspapers, old books and wrote the name of the thing that the picture depicted.
Class 2 and 3 students discussed some interesting facts relating to Hindi. The language is the base of many words in other languages too. India is the home of some of the oldest and most influential languages in the world. The childrenmade posters on the uniqueness of this beautiful language and wrote meaningful quotes.
Class 4 had a discussion about the renowned poets and authors of the Hindi language. In class 5, the pearls of wisdom or dohas written by Raheem and Kabeer were discussed. The students presented the same with a touch of their creativity.
Classes 6,7 and 8 students discussed the significance of the language. The students composed poems and presented them in class.
We at our School do believe that the upcoming generations of India must be ushered to know and identify with Hindi and stay connected to its progress through the ages.
