Kolkata, Oct 21 (PTI)
In a bid to draw the new

generation towards the Hindi language, the Paschim Bang Hindi Academy on Wednesday decided to organise conferences of poets, stage one-act plays and hold storytelling sessions, a senior official said.

At the first meeting of the reconstituted Academy on Wednesday, it was also decided that works of famous authors will be translated to Hindi.

The Academy also set up a library to reach out to the Hindi-speaking students and intellectuals in and around the city.

"There was a discussion especially on four points - Hindi language, literature, culture and arts. During today's meeting, we discussed the ways to promote the language and culture in West Bengal," the official said.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has announced last month that the Paschim Bang Hindi Academy would be reconstituted.

She also formalised the structure of the Hindi Cell of her party, the Trinamool Congress, a move which is being seen as a step to woo the Hindi-speaking population in the state ahead of next years Assembly elections.
