Hindi competitions started in December 2001 by Dr Padmesh Gupt (Chairman of UK Hindi Samiti) and Sh Anil Joshi (Hindi and Indian culture represantative from Indian High Commission London) along with the help of other associations with keen interest for Hindi language.
Shri Anil Joshi Ji have gone back to India now where he is carrying on with Hindi awarenes work and now Shri Rakesh Dubey Ji from Indian High Commission is carrying forward with the Hindi in UK with great enthusiasm.
It started off with 150 participants in London and now has over 1200 students taking part each year from through out UK.
Hindi Samiti has not only raised its awareness in UK but in other European countries as well.
Currently, Hindi speech competions and written tests are arranged by Hindi Samiti under the watchful eye of Dr Padmesh Gupt Ji and Sh Ved mitter Mohla ji. Trips to India each year for the winners are also arranged by Hindi Samiti and a lot of effort is put in to make it a real success by "Akshram" in India as well. Lately ICCR is also helping a great deal to make it a success.
