Hindi Day was commemorated at the Embassy of India in Berlin on September 14th with active participation of the officers of the Embassy and families. The event started with reading of the Home Minister's address on the occasion followed by reading of original writing, poems and devotional songs. Hindi languages are celebrated across the country on September 14th each year.

The Hindi languages, also known as the Madhya languages and the Central Zone of the Indo-Aryan languages, is a dialect continuum in the Hindi zone spoken across northern India that descend from the Madhya Prakrits, and includes the official languages of India and Pakistan, Hindi and Urdu.

Hindi written in Devnagari script was approved as an official language by the Constituent Assembly at 14th of September in 1949. After the Indian Independence, the Government of India made a goal to standardize the mother tongue that is the Hindi language with the grammar and orthography.

Devanagari script is used to bring uniformity in writing. It is written from left to right, has a strong preference for symmetrical rounded shapes within squared outlines, and is recognizable by a horizontal line that runs along the top of full letters. The Nagari script has roots in the ancient Brahmi script family.

Some of the earliest evidence attesting to the developing Sanskrit Nagari script in ancient India, in a form similar to Devanagari, is from the 1st to 4th century inscriptions discovered in Gujarat. The use of Sanskrit in Nagari script in medieval India is attested by numerous pillar and cave temple inscriptions. Nowadays, it is spoken in many countries of the world.
