“Ask not what your country can do for you - rather ask yourself what you can do for your country."- JOHN F KENNEDY

From our mesmerizing landscapes to our rich heritage, from unique culture and diverse history to joyful festivals, India is a gorgeous amalgamation of traditions, languages, people and their way of living. Being a multi-cultural, multi-lingual and multi-religious society, India has been called as the golden sparrow which always believed in “Unity in Diversity“

It is a mystique melting pot of vibrating diversity where each state from Jammu and Kashmir to Kanyakumari specialise in their specific ethics, traditions, languages, folk songs, dance, attires, identities and cuisines.

India’s age old unique and incredible civilization speaks of unity is strength where the Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Muslims, Jains, Christians, Jews, Parses etc., live together in harmony, trust, love and brotherhood. It takes it pride from its 1.3 billion citizens who can have different perspective about life, religion, economy, politics, and yet belong to one nation, Bharat.

India is a secular country which boasts about its constitution that guarantees all its citizens the freedom of faith, right to freedom of expression, right to speak different languages and livelihood. India’s great historical heritage signifies its dynamism and optimism.

India’s cultural strength and political unity makes it the world’s largest democracy. Belief in spirituality, conscience and tradition are the important virtues. The leaders of the Indian freedom struggle Mahatma Gandhi, Pt Jawaharlal Nehru, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad and Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel united made the fight for freedom a success.

With the world’s second-largest population belonging to various ethnic groups, the greatest virtue of Indian culture has been its power to tolerate against challenges. Despite the invasions and rule by the Britishers, the oneness of the whole nation despite its diverse caste and race stood with its moral and spiritual values that strengthened India’s struggle and forced the British Empire to free India from their captivity.

We have “RAM” in RAMZAN and “ALI” in DIWALI. How can religion divide us?

The difference in opinion, way of life, faith and religion is its strength and pride not weakness.

North East India comprising of 7 contiguous states also known as Seven Sister States of India is the most unexplored and a treasured paradise with a myriad of vibrating cultural diversity, tribal traditions, mind-boggling music, folk dances, traditional practices, and cuisines.

The dynamic land often depicted as “mini India” set in the lap of Mother Nature where the sun scatters its first ray of light. It is called as the Land of Rising Sun. The heavenly abode is covered with snow capped mountains, hills, sub tropical forest, serene valleys with natural resources, flora and fauna and is inhabited by many major tribes and about hundred sub tribes with distinct languages, traditions and identity.

"If you make cities more efficient, you make the world more sustainable."

Are we, the citizens, not responsible for the betterment of our own country?

The simplified definition is an act of simple living with high thinking and intent on not harming environment and preventing as much harm from occurring to the environment. It is far beyond just good urban planning or stricter codes or just turning off lights or proper garbage recycling – it’s about changing the mindset of how we live.

Though none of the universally accepted definition exists, the various goals include environmental impact per person, renewability, public transport, green spaces and recycling programs that are ambitious yet attainable if done with regular progress reports.
