Our country is an independent nation since 15 August 1947. The partition of India was the splitting up of British India, and also the division of two nations, India and Pakistan, as two different new territories. India has tremendously grown, after the era of slavery and dependency. Right after Independence, our nation had imported food grains and depended upon international aid, till late 1960’s, but now our nation stands at the second position for production of tea, cotton, sugarcane, wheat, rice etc. , and is also the largest producer of pulses, oil seeds, fresh fruits etc. India has one of the largest military powers, and we have successfully developed and tested nuclear weapons. In addition to our achievements, our nation has also eradicated Polio. Moreover our literacy rate has increased and the education sector has witnessed a drastic change.
India consists of various religions, cultures, the trends or activities we follow etc but what brings us together despite the struggle we have undergone is unity, companionship and integrity. It is not forced by any authority but it’s an emotional bond we share with each other keeping aside caste, creed, gender and community.
Integrity leads to a positive aspect to reduce socio-cultural, economic as well as differentiations and inequality between people. It’s about living harmoniously with people and to stand as one powerful country. Nowadays, we come across cases of disintegration examples including: The riots in Mumbai in the year 1992-1993 due to the demolition of Babri Masjid in Uttar Pradesh because of communal issues, lead to disputes between Hindu and Muslim. Similarly, the riots in Aligarh, in the year 2006 were due to misunderstandings among the Hindu and Muslims, the Anti – Sikh riots in 1984 had led to huge amount of chaos and bloodshed. It also includes examples of the barrier of untouchability, barrier of language, status barrier and other social barriers had weakened our foundation but, we Indians have not allowed any kind of disintegration to come in our ways. We have fought for peace and harmony and today we stand as a one strong nation. This is
what integration means; unity of people.
You and I are a part of this motherland and it’s our duty to accept every individual, live and love with every human selflessly. We should all vow for the betterment for ourselves and everyone around us and also for our nation. In spite of all differences we should stand strong and live without any political and social conflicts. We all should strongly believe in the term oneness and not differences amidst others. I truly believe. Don’t you ?
