We should use Hindi words in our day to day conversations, says Piyush Mishra

bollywood actor Piyush Mishra is a man of many hats. Besides acting in films, he is an acclaimed theatre actor, music director, lyricist, singer and scriptwriter! As an actor, he was seen in films like ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ (both the parts), ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’, ‘Pink’, ‘Sanju’ and others, his work as a lyricist can be experienced in films like ‘Shamshera’, ‘Aaja Nachle’, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ and many others.

On the occasion of ‘Rashtriya Hindi Diwas’, Mid-Day Online exclusively spoke to him wherein he opined about the importance of Hindi language and also shared his take on should Hindi be officially declared as India`s national language. 

Piyush ji, what does ‘Vishwa Hindi Diwas’ mean to you?
Hindi is the symbol of our country Hindustan. In the year in 1949, Hindi was recognized as an official language by the Constituent Assembly. We should utilize Hindi words in our day to day conversations to enhance it.

With the advent of digitization, do you think that Hindi has got a Global positioning?
Yes, totally. With the changing times, these days, Hindi has started looking modernized. Testimonials to this are in the form of slang messages of languages on WhatsApp and other mediums. But, the flip side of modernization is that, these days, many youngsters are taking keen interest in Hindi, thanks to channels like Youtube etc… Its just that, despite having many resources for the language, we do not utilize them. What has also been observed is that, whenever a person speaks ‘shudhh Hindi’, he is considered ancient!

While today (September 14) is ‘National Hindi Day’, whereas, ‘World Hindi Day’ is celebrated on January 10 every year. Do you think that both the ‘days’ should be combined as one?
I think that there should be no difference in the two days. Hence, in my opinion, these two days should be combined and celebrated as one!

Do you think that Hindi should be officially declared as National language of India?
Even if Hindi gets declared as National language of India, I am sure that many will not still speak in Hindi.

What’s your message to everyone on the occasion of ‘Vishwa Hindi Diwas 2022’?

The more we try and speak in Hindi and adopt in our day to day communication, the more glorious Hindi language will become. I wish everyone a very joyous ‘Vishwa Hindi Diwas’.
