Unity in Diversity

From the depth of my heart, welcome to the land of colours recognized as "India" at the global level. The subcontinent with its ancient name "Bharat" that is also been termed "Hindustan" since the 13th century. Firstly termed by one of the chroniclers of Delhi Sultanate "Minhaj-I-Siraj". He used this term for denoting the areas of the Ganga and Yamuna basins. The captivating art, glorious history, and harmonious culture of India never leave any person without stealing his heart. Let's glance through this fascinating world.

It is always a proud moment whenever we address ourselves as an "Indian". Being a part of the greatest and biggest democracy in the world is genuinely a great honor. India is having the oldest cultural and social history in the world. In the cut-throat competition of today's world India is emerging as a Global leader called "विश्वगुरु" in Hindi. The country is renowned for its unique feature 'Unity in Diversity'. This uniqueness can be observed in every part of the country. People with different religions, cultures, castes, races, etc. are residing together with complete harmony and peace. They follow their religious practices, rituals, and customs collaboratively and also mutually respect each other's feelings and devotion. It is the best example of brotherhood.

The country is having a great history that is filled with pride, dignity, self-respect, and sacrifices. Because of the ample amount of natural resources and human prosperity the subcontinent has always been the target of various cruel and greedy emperors and leaders. The country had gone through terrible slavery for more than a Thousand Years. From Mughals to Britishers, all had tried to rob this wealthy nation.

On one side where there were enemies then on the other hand there were loyal sons and daughters of Mother India. Thousands of valorous sons and daughters of Mother India had made supreme sacrifices. Their martyrdom cannot be forgotten. Emphasizing the British era in India, it was a struggle of around 150 years. This one and a half-century have noted remarkable and drastic changes. Many patriots emerged as prominent national leaders, hustling for the integrity of the nation. Everybody tried their level best to overthrow the British government. The story started with the Great leader, respected Lokmanya Tilak aka Bal Gangadhar Tilak. He raised his voice against the British government with the slogan "Swaraj is my birthright, and I shall have it", this was full of passion. Unfortunately, he left this world on the 1st of August 1920.

After the demise of respected Lokmanya Tilak, respected Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi aka Mahatma Gandhi bestowed with the honor of "Father of the Nation" took the duty of the Indian freedom struggle on his Shoulders. He chose the unique idea of nonviolence to tackle the British Dictator rule. He gave the slogan "do or die" that made every Indian stand against the government. Other than this, India had been blessed by having great sons and daughters like respected Subhash Chandra Bose who gave the slogan of "Chalo Dilli". Respected Bhagat Singh raised his voice by saying "Inquilab zindabad". Chandrashekhar Azad, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Rani Lakshmibai, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Ram Prasad Bismil, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, etc. also contributed a lot to this troubled full journey. Finally, the happy moment come and India was free from the shackles of the British on 15th August 1947 which is celebrated as Independence Day all over the country full of joy and pride. The diversity of this nation is a blessing to the world. And this sub-continent is the best place to live a healthy, happy, and safe life.
