The two day Regional Rajbhasha Sammelan organized by All India Radio started at Itanagar today. The conference was inaugurated by Sailendra Kumar, Additional Director General, Admin and Programme, All India Radio.

On the occasion, Kumar said that Hindi is an inclusive language and appealed the participants to promote its usage in their office and region. The first day of the conference discussed on the various aspect and opportunities of Hindi language and its usage in North Eastern States.


Taking part in the discussion as resource person Professor Dr. AK Pandey, HoD Commerce, DN College said that North East is the ‘Eshan Konn’ (Luckiest and sacred part) of India, which has preserved its cultural identity in this fast changing world. He said the way North East, especially Arunachal Pradesh, has accepted Hindi language, it is very rarely seen in other non-Hindi speaking states in the country.

He said Arunachal Pradesh has the highest number of Hindi students in Colleges and Universities in whole NE region. He added that Hindi has been playing a vital role in connecting people belonging to more than 100 tribes and sub-tribes in the state. He also appreciated the people and the political will of Arunachal in accepting Hindi language and not allowing it to be a reason for controversy ever, unlike some of the non-Hindi states. He envisaged that in future North East India can become a strong hold for Hindi in the country.  


Joint Director, Rajbhasha, Satya Prakash and Mitali Chetarjee, DDG AIR Guwahati, also addressed the session. 


Representatives from all the AIR stations in North East attended the event. This year All India Radio Itanagar is hosting the yearly event.
