SUVA, FIJI, April 6, 2001: Hosting the World Millennium Hindi Convention for three days in June of 2001 on the island nation of Fiji, the Fiji Hindi Sahitya Samiti, which is organizing the grand event, hopes to bring harmony between indigenous Fijians and ethnic Indians. In the past, racial and political tensions between the two groups has led to three coups in the last fifteen years. Expecting at least 100 scholars from overseas, the convention will also showcase the many indigenous Fijians students who excel in Hindi as well as local ethnic Indian scholars. Across the island nation, thousands of indigenous Fijians attend Indian schools and take Hindi classes.
