World Hindi Day 2023: From Geetanjali Shree to Premchand; must-read writers on this occasion


World Hindi Day is observed each year to raise awareness about Hindi as an international language. The day marks the first-ever World Hindi Conference that took place on 10 January, 1975 in Maharashtra’s Nagpur. The inauguration of this conference was done by then-Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. A total of 30 countries participated in the conference. The former Prime Minister of India, Dr Manmohan Singh had announced that 10 January was to be celebrated as World Hindi Day each year. Besides raising awareness about Hindi, World Hindi Day also puts emphasis on building a passion for this beautiful language.

The celebration of this day is incomplete without remembering some great Hindi writers who have given us literary masterpieces. Here are some of the great writers you should read this World Hindi Day:
