Hindi Diwas commemorates the day when the Constituent Assembly of India accepted Hindi as the official language of the country along with English. The listing of Hindi as official language took place on September 14, 1949.
Two years following Independence, the newly formed administration was reeling under the pressure to bring together the multiple linguistic, cultural and religious groups of the nation. The unification of the country had to be done along with giving it a unique national flavour. In a country that did not have any one language giving it a unique national identity, Hindi provided itself as the solution for unification.
The Consulate of India in Perth together with Hindi Samaj of WA organised the first ever Hindi Divas in Perth on 24 September 2016 to commemorate the unification of India through the Hindi language, since then we are celebrating Hindi Diwas every year.
