In a country that boasts of over a hundred languages and dialects, Hindi is certainly the most spoken understood of all. It is not the national language; yet the entire world celebrating Hindi Day is special for India, and its people.
Every year, January 10 is observed as World Hindi Day. It has been a practice since 2006. The day marks the anniversary of first World Hindi Conference, held in 1975. The first conference was inaugurated by the then prime minister of India, Indira Gandhi.
Twitter has its own way of celebrating days of international importance, and when it comes to something so special as Hindi, it is going overboard with couplets and famous teachings.
Netizens have since dawn been taking a dig at people who give English more prominence than Hindi -- magar pyaar se.

हिन्दी में ही बात है क्योंकि हिन्दी में जज्बात है। #विश्व_हिंदी_दिवस— Ashwani Singh (@Real_ni2) January 10, 2020
अंग्रेजी में #विश्व_हिंदी_दिवस की बधाई देने वालों को भी विश्व हिंदी दिवस की शुभकामनाएं।— Ayush Kapoor (@ayushkapoor5) January 10, 2020
Read these -- kyunki Hindi mein hi jazbaat hai...
p.s. Okay! We get the irony that you are reading all this in English. But, life.
