Unity in diversity means oneness in the varieties. India is the best country for proving this concept for many years. India is a country where it is very clear to see the unity in diversity because people of any religion, race, culture, and tradition live together without affecting each other’s feelings and beliefs.
Race, culture, and language
India is a country with many races, cultures, languages, and modes of apparel. The religions, sects, and beliefs are not obstacles to perturb its unity. The traditions, conventions, and way of living are in no way barriers to its development.
The rich culture and heritage justify the unity in social, intellectual, and human development. The Indian civilization is a mixture of Dravidian, Aryan, and Hindu cultures bringing North and South to a common stage. People may speak different languages and may follow different regional habits but they have one common language to bring into one stream and that is Hindi recognized as the national language of India.
Arts and unity
India is a land of rich music, fine arts, sculpture, spiritual impact, and passionate heritage. The West gets attracted to India for the way of life we had. The festivals of India depict the unity, love, and feeling of universal brotherhood. The ancestral heritage of sages, maharishis, and spiritual leaders stands as a symbol of piety, peace, and non-violence.
The temples, monuments, and caves represent the rich sculpture and architecture of Indian intellectual minds. Music and dance are considered to be the passion from the ancient era to the present. The dance and art forms highlight the aesthetic outlook and spirituality. The themes like power, shakti, tragedy, and love are performed to show varied aspects of united India. The individual in the whole, the simple in composite, and one in many can be the divergence in convergence and unity in diversity – a special feature of only our nation.
Unity in Diversity is an integral part of ethics and morality. The concept is certainly essential for the future progress of human society. People must display faith in this concept. Above all, they must keep aside feelings of racism, discrimination, and oppression. Without unity in diversity, the demise of humanity will certainly happen.
