UNITIY IN DIVERSITY- INDIA
Indian socio religious status was one of the best in the world as it tolerated the presence of different religious groups all over India. Of late this status of religious unity is being exploited by few politicians to gain their own ends.
The faith in God is a personal right and he/she can adopt any faith he/she likes. The parental care and support will naturally prompt the descendants to continue in the same faith. But fundamentally the human beings are one and the same, and hence there cannot be any discrimination on this account.
Unity in Diversity was our watchword and we could win over the foreign rulers only due to our united efforts. Now after independence we started thinking in a deviated route due to the influence of introvert political leaders who clandestinely developed antisocial relations by injecting the religious enmity and hatred amongst the people of India.
The population growth is a natural phenomenon and cannot be restricted by any forceful orders for producing more or reducing the population. Of course our economical situation demands a small family unit to maintain social balance in life with adequate basic amenities.
The recent campaign and exhortation by fundamentalists reported in (Times of India) dated 22nd January 2015, gives us a feeling that we are “running at a tangent” from our policy of demographic growth in India. Increasing the number of people in one religious sector will not produce any positive result in the peaceful existence of the people. Also the political leaders must not be under the false impression that “one faith and one religion” will settle our issue on social and economic progress.
Therefore these introvert and arrogant political leaders must stop such foolhardy thoughts and come forward to take up more responsible jobs of uniting the country as a “well knit” nation. It is my personal request to all the public servants both in Political & administrative fields to take care of our common men, so as to enable them to stand on their own legs in the matter of their daily needs.
“ Take care of the vital things, other things will take care of themselves” is a well known saying which we should honour in Style & Use..
