ALLAHABAD: The Hindi Pakhwara concluded with a programme organised at Allahabad GPO, Civil Lines on Saturday. Rahmatullah, senior superintendant of Post Offices, Allahabad division, welcomed the chief guest, Krishna Kumar Yadav, director Postal Services, Allahabad region and briefed about the programme.
Addressing the gathering, Yadav urged the officers and employees to encourage the use of Hindi in government work so that its status of national language could reflect in true spirit.
He further added that Hindi is the most organised language and Devanagari script is the most scientific script. Hindi is inherited from the great vocabulary of Sanskrit and also has a virtue of creation of new words by accepting words from all dialects and foreign languages, he said. "This is the reason behind 2 lakh 50 thousand words in Hindi vocabulary against 10,000 words in that of English," he added.
Rahamtullah said that the celebration of Hindi Pakhwara was not for worrying about the Hindi language but to think about its growth and progress.
Senior postmaster, Allahabad HO, Madhusudan Prasad Mishra, said Hindi is a language which links different parts of the country and it should be adapted vastly in official working.
The chief guest also distributed prize among the winners of various Hindi competitions organised at head post office, Allahabad.
