New Delhi: It is September 14 today as India celebrates Hindi Diwas, and former India opener Virender Sehwag was not to be left behind with his thoughts on Twitter.
On this day in 1949, the Constituent Assembly of the country adopted Hindi as the official language of the Republic of India and since then every year Hindi Diwas is celebrated with fervour.
Sehwag, who is a regular on Twitter, also shared his views quoting poet Late Sumitra Nandan Pant, “हिन्दि हमारे राष्ट्र की अभिव्यक्ति का सरलतम स्त्रोत है! (Hindi is the simplest source of expression of our nation).”
The former Indian opener then ended the tweet with his addition. “जो बात हिंदी में है वो किसी और में नही! 17 Sept. को हिंदी कमेंट्री ! (What is in Hindi is not in anything else! Hindi commentary on 17th September!)”
Sehwag is part of the commentary panel for the coming limited-overs series between India and Australia starting September 17 in Chennai; and like it has been the case for some time now, the matches will be telecast with Hindi commentary feed as well.
