To mark and celebrate Hindi Diwas, news channel News18 India will present a special show called ‘Mujhe Chaand Chahiye’.
The show will feature famous poet Gopaldas Neeraj along with some renowned Hindi journalists and poets like Dr Kumar Vishwas, Navneet Hullad Moradabadi, Waheed Naqvi, Shambhu Shikhar, Anamika Amber Jain, Ramkripal Singh and Sheshnarayan Singh in a “Hasya Kavi Sammelan”. The channel is all set to enthral its viewers with this show as the poets will not only present the poems of Gopaldas Neeraj but will also recite satirical verses on the plight of Hindi language.
The show will be dedicated to Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awardee Gopaldas Neeraj, who has not only contributed to Hindi as a language but has also written several poems and songs, which have been used in famous Hindi movies.
From September 14 onwards, News18 India is also launching an initiative to bring back the use of “Chandra Bindu” in relevant Hindi words – a practice that has been abandoned these days.
