Agenda for August 11 meeting:
At the brainstorming session scheduled to be held at the Consulate General of India office in NYC on August 11, 2014 at 3 pm, we hope to discuss diverse ideas on the major recommendations of the INTERNATIONAL HINDI CONFERENCE, AMERICAS (Regional), New York, NY, April 25-27, 2014, which are as follows:
1. The conference delegates discussed the need to establish a Hindi Center in the New York Metro region. Subsequently a resolution was passed unanimously in an open session held on April 27, in which the Consul General Hon. Dnyaneshwar Mulay was urged to use his good offices for establishment of a Hindi Center in the New York Metro region. It was resolved that the establishment of the Hindi Center was the most urgent step for promoting Hindi language and culture in America. The resolution emphasizes that "the Center will serve the purpose of developing much-needed teaching material for young learners, organizing educational and cultural activities including workshops".
2. Ambassador Dnyaneshwar Mulay, Consul General of India, who, during his speeches at both inaugural and concluding functions, underscored the need for transforming this event of International Hindi Conference into an annual affair. The conference was an exemplary model of meaningful partnership among various stake holders: community organizations led by New Jersey based Yuva Hindi Sansthan, Educators Society for the Heritage of India and New York based Akhil Vishwa Hindi Samiti, and New York University on the one hand and the Consulate General of India on the other.
3. There is a need for community organizations and other partners to extend their relationship with US based business and educational organizations for developing resources for future projects, including an annual conference. New Jersey based Yuva Hindi Sansthan played a major role in building a foundation for this partnership among like minded organizations, such as, Educators Society for the Heritage of India and New York based Akhil Vishwa Hindi Samiti, and others. A helping had was extended by New York University on the one hand and the Consulate General of India on the other for organizing the 2014 conference in New York City. We are outreaching to institutions, such as, Rutgers University, for hosing the 2015 conference. Suggestions to strengthen this partnership are welcome.
