“A country that does not take pride in its language and literature can never progress.”
RT Education cell of NSS, IIT Roorkee organised an "Hindi Essay Writing Competition", augmenting the eve of ‘Hindi Diwas’ . The event was held on 14/9/2015 at Chediram Junior High School.
Hindi has been recognized as the 2nd most spoken language around the world, yet it has somewhat lost a step in its very own country. The quality of literature has seen a steep decline and the future of Hindi literature has been questioned one too many times. Therefore to promote Hindi literature, an ‘Essay Writing Competition’ was conducted in the school premises. The students wrote on various topics ranging from ‘Significance of Independence Day’ to ‘Teacher’s Day Celebrations’. There were a total of 17 participants, which included students from 8th-10th classes. They were given 20 minutes to write the essay, out of which the best 3 were orated by the student’s themselves. The essays were very well written and the students were successful in showcasing their beautiful vocabulary and unique styles of writing.
The winners then read out their essays and were lauded by the crowd. This was followed by Prize Distribution in which our NSS students congratulated the winners and rewarded them with books and chocolates. The event was concluded by a group photograph of all the winners and NSS workers.
Hindustan is incomplete without ‘Hindi’, and it is small strides like these which will help us popularize the language furthermore.
