In today’s world Hindi is the second most spoken language after Chinese. About 900 million people on this Earth understand Hindi while 500 million people all over the world including India speak Hindi. Despite being such a popular and being the official language of India, Hindi is not given its due importance. With the increasing western influence, English has started to become the most spoken language in India leaving its official language Hindi in the back bench.
Hindi graduates and post graduates are not given the jobs suitable for their education due the fact that they have graduated or post graduated in Hindi rather than English. Though these Hindi graduates and post graduates may not get high-paying jobs in private sector but the Government has a lot to offer them.
Importance of Hindi in Indian Government
The Central government’s official documents, courts etc. are in English but the State government uses Hindi language for official documents in many states that include Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, and Chhattisgarh. Another co-official language is used with Hindi as every state has its own locally used language, for example in the state of Uttar Pradesh, Urdu is added as the second language.
Jobs in Private Sectors
Jobs for Hindi graduates in Private sector are much selected and they can get a job only as professors, translators, teachers etc. The private sector has tons of opportunities for English graduates, and a few options for Hindi graduates.
