Are you confused between World Hindi Day and National Hindi Day?

World Hindi Day and National Hindi Day are two different occasions, with completely different histories, aims, and purposes. While Vishwa Hindi Diwas is celebrated on January 10 every year, it marks the day when Hindi, India's national language, was spoken for the first time in the United Nations General Assembly.

Whereas, Rashtriya Hindi Diwas or National Diwas is celebrated in India on September 14 to promote the language and its usage across the nation. The day aims to raise awareness about the Hindi language and also commemorate the event when it was adopted as one of the official languages of India.
