CARROLLTON, TX- The International Hindi Association, or Antarrashtriya Hindi Samiti, founded on Oct. 18, 1980 by Prof. Kunwar Chandra Prakash Singh to promote and propagate Hindi around the globe, is planning to launch “Jagriti,” a virtual series of webinars to persuade new writers to develop a new platform of literary work in Hindi while adopting the changing global demography.

The Samiti is a U.S.-based IRS approved 501-c3 non-profit organization, which has been actively pursuing its mission for past 41+ years around the world through its multiple chapters in the U.S. and other countries, according to a press release from Indian American Tarun N. Surti, who recently joined the IHA board of trustees. It has taken up a multi-prong approach to accomplish its mission, including publication of a quarterly magazine named “Vishwaa,” annual mega kavi-sammelans, and the teaching of Hindi.

The first step of Jagriti will be to explore, understand, and learn from the centuries-old history of the Hindi language and its potential socio-economic impact in the modern world, noted the release.

The series of free, virtual monthly webinars will involve discussions led by invited acclaimed Hindi scholars from around the world, including university professors, linguists, writers, and other stakeholders such as publishers.
