Which is the first Hindi newspaper?

Let me tell you about the first ever Hindi newspaper - it's called 'Udant Martand' (The Rising Sun). This prestigious title was launched way back on May 30, 1826. It was the brainchild of Pt. Jugal Kishore Shukla, who truly pioneered Hindi journalism in India. However, despite its historical significance, the newspaper unfortunately faced a short lifespan. Still, the legacy of 'Udant Martand' plays a significant role in the rich tapestry of Hindi journalism.
