Why India is Great?
Unity in diversity” – these are not just words, but something that is highly applicable to a country like India that is incredibly rich in culture and heritage. A few quotations or statements cannot describe the pedestal that India holds on to the world map because of its colourful and unique culture. From the times of Mauryas, Cholas and Mughals to the period of the British Empire, India has always been famous for its traditions and hospitality.
Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism, and Buddhism have originated in India. Having such strong religious diversity, one may wonder how people of different denominations manage to live peacefully. Thankfully, the Constitution of India grants every citizen the right to practice any religion they want. A startling fact is that Christianity in India is as old as Christianity itself.
India is a land of rich culture and heritage where people have humanity, tolerance, unity, secularism, strong social bond and other good qualities. Indians are always famous for their mild and gentle behaviour, in spite of lots of aggressive activities by the people of other religions.
Indian people are always praises for their caring and calm nature without any change in their principles and ideals. India is a land of great legends where great people took birth and do lots of social works.
They are still inspiring personality to us. India is a land where Mahatma Gandhi took birth and had given a great culture of Ahimsa. He always told us that does not fight with other instead talk them politely if you really want to get change in something. He told us that every people on this earth are hungry for love, respect, care and honour; if you give them all, definitely they will follow you.
Gandhi Ji always believed in the “Ahimsa” and really he became successful a day in getting freedom for India from the British rule. He told Indians that show your power of unity and gentleness and then see the change.
India is not a country of men and women, castes and religions, etc separately however it is a country of unity where people of all the castes and creeds live together conjointly.
People in India are modern and follow all the changes according to the modern era however they still in touch with their traditional and cultural values. India is a spiritual country where people believe in spiritualism. People here believe in Yoga, meditation and other spiritual activities. Social system of the India is great where people still leaves in big joint family with grandparents, uncle, aunt, chacha, tau, cousins, brothers, sister, etc. So, people here learn about their culture and tradition by birth.
