The date designated as Hindi Diwas, September 14, 1949 also marked the 50th birthday of Beohar Rajendra Simha, a famous artist who made important contributions to highlight the importance of Hindi and pushed it to become the official language of the country.

Initially, the Indian Constitution and laws were written in English until Hindi was added as an official language. Simha designed the final Constitution of India which became known as one of the most beautiful constitutions in the world.

Finally, on January 26, 1950, and Under the Article 343 of the Indian Constitution, Hindi language written in Devanagari script was adopted as the official language of the nation. While India has two 'official' languages, namely, Hindi and English, there is no designated 'national language'.
