Unity in Diversity

"It takes eighty nations, speaking eighty languages, to people her, and they number three hundred millions. "

- Mark Twain

We are a nation of over 100 million people spread acrosss 28 states and 8 Union Territories. India is one of the oldest civilization in the world spanning nearly 4000 years. We are a land of diversity. Unity in Diversity is the soul of India. It is reflected in our ancient scriptures such as Mahaupanishads that are known to be among the oldest of scriptures . The following mantra embodies the legacy inherited by Indians.

अयं बन्धुरयंनेति गणना लघुचेतसाम्

उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् ॥

It explains that only narrow minded people are concerned of what is theirs and what is others' and thus advocates to be large hearted and thus consider the entire world afamily. This is the strength of the Indian mindset and is the foundation of our Unity in Diversity.
