Make Hindi a Strong Internet Language: PM

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Friday called for making Hindi a strong internet language and the development of better Hindi software and search engines.

He also said books by non-resident Indian (NRI) authors should be included in the syllabi of educational institutions in India as the 8th World Hindi Conference began here Friday.

The prime minister's message was delivered by video to the conference.

Anand Sharma, India's minister of state for external affairs, said, "Hindi's cause would be better served if it were to be made more flexible, more accommodating, and we favor spoken language over bookish one."
