We are all Indians
We love our country
You may be familiar with this well-know saying, ``united we stand; divided we fall’’. Or, ``unity is strength’’.
We are social beings. We need the help of one another to make the life beautiful and worth0-livung. If we do not share, if we do not help each other, if we do not work together, we cannot achieve anything if life.
India got freedom from the British only because we all stood united under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru used to assert these words, ``unity in diversity’’. India is a land of many languages, many cultures, and much religious worship. Thus we are divided externally. But each one of us belongs to our mother land. India is our mother. We are the children of the same mother living in different areas. Yet we are one.
Observe this little story
*The hunter was so happy for he got eight pigeons at a time. Being tired, he kept the pigeons in the net and slept a while. The pigeons talked each other and planned to escape. They all untidily decided to fly together with the net. Then they worked with one mind and away together.
When the hunter got up he saw the pigeons flying off with net.
This sows we can achieve anything if we are united.
Another well-known story
*A king had three sons. But the sons were not united. They used to quarrel and never helped each other. The old king was unhappy. He understood that the enemies would kill them and take away his kingdom.
The he thought of a plan. The king called the princes together. He gave them a bundle of sticks tied together with a string.
``Can you break this?’’ he asked. Each one of them tried with his whole strength to break it but could not. The he said to them to un-tie the string and take each stick and try to break. Then they succeeded then the king said to them, ``the bundle was strong because it was tied together. Alone each stick is weak. In the same way as long you fight each other you will always be weak and then you will be attacked by your enemies. Stop being divided and quarrelling but be united and helpful to one another’’. Therefore they never quarreled.
As a team or group you can achieve much. When you do something by yourself, there is no support, or very little help you get. But as a team when you do something, you get better co-operative and help from others. Then you work becomes easier and free from burden.
Be friend always. Be helpful to you friends and do everything with a spirit of love and togetherness.
