Department of Hindi Studies

Providing a scholarly knowledge of Hindi Language, Literature and North Indian culture and promoting related research in this field among Sri Lankans are the aims of the Department of Hindi Studies which was established at the very founding of this University, under the guidance of the Venerable Professor Bhadantha Anand Kausalyayan, an expert in Hindi, from India. The Department which was later absorbed into the Department of Modern Languages regained its status as an independent department in March 1995 with the enormous effort and guidance of Professor Indra Dassanayake and it remains as the only independent department for Hindi Studies among the Sri Lankan universities.
