The reason for the celebration of a festival may be different. However, some festivals and special days are to mark and remember the atrocities and evil things that had occurred on their religion, or an important personality.
Some important days are also to mark the linguistic importance of few languages. In India, there are thousands of languages.
Since it would not be wrong if I say that the basis of the formation of India is languages. In India, states are mostly are on a linguistic basis. Karnataka was on 1st November 1956 based on the Kannada speaking population.
The Hindi Language is predominantly spoken in 9 Indian states. It is in Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and the Union Territory of Chandigarh, and the National Capital Region or the National Territory of Delhi.

History of Hindi Diwas:
Hindi Day is commemorated every year to mark the adoption of Hindi in the Devanagari Script. It is one of the official languages in various Hindi speaking states of the country.
The credit of this success of adoption of the Hindi Language goes to Beohar Rajendra Simha, Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Kaka Kalelkar, Maithili SharanGupt, and SETH Govind Das. However, these people made immense efforts to make the Hindi language one of the official languages of India.
All the Hindi speaking regions should be grateful for their efforts. They were responsible for the official recognition that the Hindi Language got back in those days.

A lot of events will be in schools, colleges, and various Government offices. On this day people share about the origin of the Hindi language, its long history, its Indo-Aryan roots, its induction in the constitution of the Republic of India, its writing Script, and many more things.
However, people love to share various poems and written literature that are written in Hindi by various and popular Hindi Poets, Writers, and others.
Now a day somehow celebration of Hindi Diwas had taken a political angle. However, this is included in the speeches of many political leaders who belong to the Hindi speaking belt. Since they often raise the question and make it compulsory to teach and learn the language in various non-Hindi-speaking states of the country.

Hindi is a beautiful language. It shares a long history with us. The Hindi Language is easy to learn, remember, read and write. Hindi Language should be promoted in the country as it has the potential to connect with the people easily.
While promoting a particular language or anything else we Indians irrespective of the region that we live in, must not forget that India is always known for its Diversification. We should promote Hindi but we should not impose the language on any other state or any region.
But somehow we Indians will forget that being in the same country every region is different from the other. We differ in culture, religion, tradition, customs, heritage, history, and even in language too.
We must remember that any of our actions must not hurt the sentiments of someone. The basis of the formation of India is Language. Many Indian states were formed on a linguistic basis, even today their boundaries are decided by the language that is spoken there.
We humans should always remember that we are on this beautiful planet that is not less than any miracle. We should always spread happiness in this world rather than spreading the communal riots, and various tensions among various people and regions.
