Ichagarh MLA Savita Mahto was present as the chief guest during the third day’s events. While praising the dynamism and sincerity of Srinath University’s Chancellor, Sukhdev Mahto, Savita Mahto observed, “It is Sukhdev Mahto’s willpower, administrative acumen, sincerity and dedication that a glittering and momentous event like Srinath International Hindi Mahotsav that such a Mahotsav has been organized in our region. The manner in which the University is working for the propagation of Hindi has not been observed anywhere else in our state.”
Retired Hindi Departmental Head of Kolhan University, Dr BM Pannali, observed, “The attachment and affection towards Hindi is very much evident in Chancellor, Sukhdev Mahto. The manner in which Srinath University is developing and its commitment to the development of Hindi cannot be ignored and it will go on creating its own path.”
On this occasion of the fifth Hindi Mahotsav, Srinath Hindi Mahotsav was held at an international level during which speakers and participants connected online with this mega event.
Among the final day’s speakers was famous literary personality, Jainandan who said that in spite of Hindi being the official language, it was not allowed to become the national language because too much politicking smeared its top pedestal chance. “However, I would like to say that today Hindi has gone beyond the national language borders because it has now become the language of the people. Many factions have also been formed among writers like Progressive Sangh, Jan Sanskriti Manch and Democratic Writers Association but things do not stop here as politics still lurks in the matters of literary awards and recognitions.”
