Mentioning that many Bangladeshis regularly watch Hindi soap operas and movies on TV, Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Harsh Vardhan Shringla has said the language has a bright future in Bangladesh.

“These people understand the Hindi language although they can’t write or read,” he said while presiding over a programme at the Institute of Modern Languages (IML) in Dhaka University on Wednesday.

Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre and the IML jointly organised the program marking the World Hindi Day.

DU Vice-chancellor Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman was present at the event as the chief guest while IML Director Prof Shishir Bhattacharya also spoke on the occasion.

Harsh Vardhan Shringla said the Hindi department of IML has created a great opportunity for those who are interested to know about the Hindi language and culture.
