Hindi language and literature of Mauritius
History of hindi literature in Mauritius
The propagation of hindi language started with the coming of Dr Manilall in 1907 as the first missionary and later by the planning of Arya Samaj in 1911 and in 1919 with a force of teaching and propagation of the language. In the mean time Pt. Atmaram Vishwanath came from India for the editorial work started by Arya Samaj. At the same time he wrote in hindi as the pioneer of the language about the then social life and organisations.
The first torch-bearers of hinduism worked under the guidance of Sri. Manilall Doctor
who invited Pt.Atmaram in 1912 from India to continue the editorship of HINDUSTANI, the first hindi paper of Mauritius.
Messrs Sajeewonlal, Khemraj Lallah and Dookhee Gungah are the tripartite torchbearers of hinduism.
The propagation of hinduism safeguarded hindi language which is now fostering a wider range of writings.
