Rashriya Sahityik Parisamvad

A programme of 'Literary Symposium' was started by the 'Bhasha' magazine in 1991 to initiate an intense discussion on innovative literature of Hindi and non-Hindi writers as well as on the most recent, contemporary and burning issues of Hindi language. In this 2/3 day symposium; jointly organized by the Central Hindi Directorate and leading voluntary Hindi institutions and Hindi department of various universities; scholars and experts of Hindi and non-Hindi language discuss in open forum and try to reach some conclusions. Active participation of the listeners is ensured through mutual discussion with the experts so that a strong and standardized base can be provided to the deep analysis of the subject. Thus, this symposium has much wider dimensions.
