Khabarindiaonline: On September 14, 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted Hindi as the official language of a newly independent nation.
The Indo-Aryan language had been in use across large sections of India in multiple forms by then and had in fact been carried outside the shores of the country by those who settled in other parts of the world through centuries.
The migration of Hindi, in particular, the variant used in parts of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, is intimately tied up with the history of India itself.
Its presence and popularity in large parts of the world today is reflective of India’s colonial history and the movement of people that colonialism gave rise to. ( Source: DD NEWS ).
