"Dakshina Bharat Hindi Prachar
Sabha" was established in the year 1918 by our beloved Father of
the Nation Mahatma Gandhi with the sole aim of propagating Hindi in southern
states. The first Pracharak was none other than Devadoss Gandhi son of Mahatma
"Hindi Prachar" was a movement that emerged as part of Freedom Movement and the leaders who led the nation to "FREE INDIA" felt the necessity of making a single Indian Language the National Language, and through that language unify the people and thereby intensify National Integration.
1927 saw the emergence of Dakshina Bharat Hindi Prachar Sabha as an independent organisation and Mahatma Gandhi was its President till he breathed his last.
