We must be proud of our culture. The responsibility of maintaining the beauty and structure of our language is ours and we must carry this out honestly, said the Vice Chancellor. The Director of Central Hindi Directorate, Mrs. Gandhari, apprised the students of various activities being run by the Centre to promote Hindi.
