“I think it is essential for people who work in the Hindi film industry, especially in front of the camera, to be well-versed in Hindi,” says Richa.

“It is not that Hindi literature hasn’t found a popular space in Indian books or literature. We may feel so because in Delhi and Mumbai, the bookshops mostly have English books but this is an unfortunate side effect of a policy started by the British,” says Richa Chadha, including that additionally they needed us to make use of forks and knives as an alternative of consuming by fingers. “They thought they were trying to civilise us but in turn, that has cost us confidence in our culture. I feel that for India to find its soul, we should revisit our core which are our revolutionary Hindi writers,” she shares.

That’s why this Hindi Diwas, Chadha will likely be selling Hindi poets and authors on her social media handles. She feels revisiting a few of our “revolutionary and amazing writers” from the previous, would create curiosity amongst those that haven’t had the prospect to learn them and it may additionally get folks excited by what cool stuff has already been written.

“No one is asking people to go and read new books because reading books itself seems like a dying habit. Everyone is on their phone or watching some rubbish on TV. I think it is essential for people who work in the Hindi film industry, especially in front of the camera, to be well-versed in Hindi. I have always believed so and said it many times. In the last 15-20 years, I think there was a trend to dis our own language. People were not able to read the Hindi script, even though most film stars grew up in Mumbai and they have learnt to read and write Marathi, which is a compulsory language in schools. Both Marathi and Hindi have the same Devnagari script.”
