SCERT holds Multiple Programmes on Hindi Divas
Languages should not be connected to any particular religion: Speakers
SRINAGAR: The speakers at the Hindi Divas function organized by the J&K State Council of Education Research and Training (SCERT) on Wednesday, emphasized the importance of learning more languages in order to communicate with a wider audience.
They said that it was incorrect to associate any language with a specific faith.
Hindi Divas is observed on September 14 every year to celebrate its popularity and mark its adoption in the Devanagari script as one of the official languages of India.
“Languages provide the strongest connection to other cultures and foster love for their customs, beliefs, arts, and history,” said academic officer Dr Shabnam.
“People should learn multiple languages, especially those of the country as it will help them communicate with people from other States and travel more easily,” she said.
Associate Professor Fayaz Ahmad Fayaz in his address said that learning the local language will make life easier.
“We should learn Hindi with a more honest and open mindset because we live in India, where the bulk of the population speaks Hindi,” Fayaz said, adding that the students should be encouraged to study Hindi noting that it was the National language of the Country.
Later, some members of the SCERT faculty arranged a panel discussion and talked about the importance of learning Hindi without associating it with a particular faith.
On the occasion, school children also displayed vibrant activities to encourage the study of the Hindi language.
