After a successful term of 2016-17, the Hindi Literary Society commenced its work this year towards promoting the Hindi language and culture, and making it more popular among the students of St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata. On 23rd August, 2017, it organized Aamna Saamna, a Hindi debate competition, which witnessed great number of participation from all the years, especially from the newly arrived students of the college. On 14th September, 2017, Hindi Literary Society organized Hindi Diwas, an intra-college cultural fest which included plethora of events and also experienced high participation from the students of college, with Poetry Recitation being the most stand-out event. Also, Hindi Diwas gave us an opportunity to come across the love for Hindi language that the students had, which was clearly evident from their enthusiastic participation in the event. Then, on 9th and 10th of March, 2018, came the society’s flagship event, Vividha’18. It turned out to be the biggest and the most successful event organized by HLS ever. It saw the highest number of participation as well as the highest amount of sponsorships ever raised by the Society, thereby making it possible for the event to be bigger than ever. Like every year, the mock Lok Sabha attracted the students hugely with a colossal number of registrations for the event but the event that stood out the most was the Guest Performance by Yahya Bootwala and Ramneek Singh from UnErase Poetry which stole people’s hearts with their patriotic as well as greatly emotional poems.
