Hindi is one of the official languages of the Union of India, and the main language of many states of India, called the Hindi belt.

I have previously blogged primarily in English. My Dear Hindi is a a blog to express myself in one of my mother tongues, Hindi. Punjabi is another language that I will attempt here from time to time, till I feel inspired enough to start a Punjabi blog.

On this blog you will find my original poems, short stories and articles written in Hindi.

From time to time, I will include similar creative work written or composed by other writers, and cite their names as I do that. If any of the readers wish to contribute to this site, I will be happy to add them on.

This site being very new, is still very much under construction. Please give your suggestions.

Thank you!

Alka ‘Pahwa’ Girdhar
