Marathi Bhasha Diwas Photos

We celebrated "Marathi Bhasha Diwas" on 28th. February, 2011 in our Institute.
Marathi Bhasha Diwas is celebrated on 27th. February every year as it is the birthday of the legendary poet V.V. Shirwadkar, popularly known as Kusumagraj. This year marks the centenary of the birth anniversary of the poet.

In 1989, poet Kusumagraj was honoured with the Dnyanpeeth Award, the topmost award for literature instituted by the Government of India, for his contribution to Marathi literature. He was only the second Marathi litterateur after V. S. Khandekar to receive this award. He served as the President of the first International Marathi Parishad (Convention) in 1989.
Kusumagraj’s contribution to Marathi literature and his love for the language prompted the International Marathi Convention to dedicate his birthday, 27th February, as the Marathi Language Day. The idea behind observing this day is to create awareness and pride about Marathi culture and its roots, apart from encouraging research and development of the language.

The Marathi Abhimaan Geet composed by Shri. Kaushal Inamdar also completed a year in the month of February this year. This very song is sung by 105 singers, accompanied by 356 co-singers. The video for the song follows this post.
