Vishwa Hindi Samman Recipient Proud to be BITSian Anoop Bhargava Alumnus of BITS Pilani

To quote English poet, literary critic, philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge “Language is the armory of the human mind, and at once contains the trophies of its past and the weapons of its future conquests” No one has doubt that language indeed shapes the way we think and determines what we can think about. It was on 14 September 1949, the Constitution-makers of India decided to accord the status of Official Language of the Union to Hindi written in Devanagari script.

To commemorate this historic occasion, Hindi Diwas is observed every year on the same date. Former UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon during the 8th World Hindi Conference on Hindi at United Nation headquarters in New York had said that Hindi is a language of harmony and understanding. The importance of Hindi in the global arena can be judged by the fact that the hugely popular and highly acclaimed social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter etc have included Hindi versions.
