EAM S Jaishankar inaugurated the 12th Vishwa Hindi Sammelan in Nadi, Fiji.
The external Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar visited Fiji on Wednesday. There he inaugurated the 12th Vishwa Hindi Sammelan in Nadi, Fiji.
“In events like the World Hindi Conference, it is natural that our focus should be on various aspects of the Hindi language, its global use, and its dissemination. We will discuss issues like the status of Hindi in Fiji, the Pacific region, and indentured countries. The era when we equated progress & modernity with westernization is behind us. Many such languages and traditions which were suppressed during the colonial era are again raising their voice on the global stage,” S. Jaishankar said during his address at the event.
Fijian President Ratu Willem Mavalili Katonivre was also present during the inauguration of the 12th Vishwa Hindi Sammelan in Nadi, Fiji. He said the forum presents a unique opportunity to celebrate the enduring strength of the historical and special relationship Fiji shares with India.
