हिंदी दिवस
भारत में  प्रतिवर्ष 14 सितम्बर को हिंदी दिवस मनाया जाता है। 14 सितम्बर 1949 को भारत की संविधान सभा ने हिंदी को भारत की राजभाषा घोषित किया था। आज भी उस ऐतिहासिक फैसले को याद करने के लिये हम इस दिन को हिंदी दिवस के रूप में मनाते है। भारत विभिन्न भाषाओं वाला देश है। यहाँ अनेक भाषाएँ बोली जाती है परन्तु पूरे देश को एकता के साथ बाँधने वाली एकमात्र भाषा हिंदी ही है। आज सब जगह अंग्रेजी का बोलबाला ही नजर आ रहा है। शिक्षा और अन्य कामों में भी अंग्रेजी का उपयोग हो रहा है। परन्तु यह भी सच है कि दैनिक कामों और मनोरंजन में हिंदी का ही उपयोग होता है जैसे समाचार पत्र, धारावाहिक, विज्ञापन, खरीदारी तथा अधिकतर बातचीत आदि सभी में हिन्दी का ही बोलबाला है। हिन्दी भाषा न केवल देश की भाषा है बल्कि आम जन के दिल से जुडी हुई है। आज हम भले ही अंग्रेजी भाषा का उपयोग कर रहे है लेकिन हिन्दी हमारे बीच सदा रहेगी और कभी भी अपना वर्चस्व कम नहीं होने देगी।
Wednesday, 10th September: Evaluation I started for classes I to V. All the students seemed busy in their studies due to forth coming. Revisions are in full swing. Teachers are busy giving worksheets to carry out the activities organized in the class.
