Hindi language has a bright future in Bangladesh as many people of this country regularly watch Hindi serials and movies on the television, said Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Harsh Vardhan Shringla on Wednesday.
“These people understand Hindi language although they can’t read or write,” he said while presiding over a programme at the Institute of Modern Languages (IML) of Dhaka University, reports UNB.
Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre (IGCC) and the IML jointly organised the programme marking the World Hindi Day.
Shringla said the Hindi department of IML has created a great opportunity for those who are interested to know about the Hindi language and culture.
“The relation between the people of Bangladesh and India will be more strong and deep,” he said.
DU vice-chancellor professor Md Akhtaruzzaman attended the event as the chief guest.
IML director professor Shishir Bhattacharya also addressed the programme.
