Department of Hindi
The Hindi department at this college has a rich history since its introduction as a second language in the curriculum in 1964. In 1999, the B.A. Hindi Language and Literature Model II Functional Hindi was introduced, which covers not only literature but also computer applications, translation, and DTP. This additional curriculum provides students with various employment opportunities in the respective areas. The department boasts highly qualified faculty members with doctoral degrees, and one of them is a research guide of Mahatma Gandhi University, with six research fellows.
The department has a well-stocked library and computer laboratory to provide students with access to all the necessary resources. Additionally, the department offers a certificate course in communicative Hindi, applied grammar, and translation. A communicative Hindi club is formed to enhance the communication skills of students. The department also has a literary club, RASHTRABHASHA SAHITYA SANGH, since 1999, which promotes literary activities among students and faculty.
One of the department’s significant events includes a two-day national seminar and a one-day international seminar, attended by 36 speakers from eminent universities in India and abroad. The department also conducts 24 national webinars, featuring renowned faculty members from prestigious universities across India, as speakers during the current academic year (2021-22). The department’s efforts and activities have led to students achieving top ranks in universities and getting admission to higher studies. The department runs a YouTube channel, ‘Hindi Kolenchery हिंदी कोलेंचेरी,’ where all the videos of the seminars and webinars are uploaded.
