Today, on September 14th, we commemorate the historic adoption of Hindi as an official language of India in 1949. This observance stands as a testament to our nation's commitment to linguistic diversity, cultural heritage preservation, and national unity. Hindi acts as a unifying force in a country of myriad languages, facilitating education and efficient governance. Moreover, it amplifies India's global influence and serves as a platform for artistic expression. Whether through literature, cinema, or music, Hindi bridges cultural divides, underscoring the significance of every language in India's vibrant mosaic. Hindi Diwas embodies the strength found in celebrating linguistic plurality.
At Lamdon School Leh, our students celebrated Hindi Diwas with remarkable enthusiasm and skill, showcasing their linguistic prowess through a captivating Elocution contest. From delivering powerful speeches to reciting soul-stirring Hindi poems, and even presenting entertaining skits in Hindi, each performance was a testament to the dedication and hard work of our students.
We were honoured to have our esteemed Hindi faculties, Shri. Ravinder and Smt. Rani Kaushal, as judges for the contest. Their expertise and discerning eye added an extra layer of excitement and motivation for our participants. Shri. Ravinder, in his insightful address, shed light on the profound significance of the Hindi language. His words resonated deeply with all present, emphasizing the importance of celebrating Hindi Diwas as a mark of respect and acknowledgment for our cultural heritage. Our Principal, Dr. Stanzin Dawa, beamed with pride as he expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the exceptional celebration. He commended the students for their dedication and the teachers for their invaluable guidance. Dr. Dawa also shared his thoughts on the pivotal role of Hindi in shaping our cultural identity.
As we reflect on this wonderful celebration, let's remember to continue embracing the beauty and richness of our national language, Hindi. Through events like these, we not only honour our cultural heritage but also foster a deep sense of pride and unity among our students.
