Introduction: India is one of the ancient civilizations all over the world beholding great cultural heritage and glorious past. From the very beginning of the history of Indian independence and before the partition of Indian subcontinent, this massive and eminent country endeavored to retain the very diversity as an integral part of its culture. Hence, the elapsed history in India is an evident instance of integrated nation which widens the interrelationships irrespective of gender, caste and class.
Unity: At a level, questions arise about the concept of unity. National integration means combining all the people of a particular nation into a single whole similar in its beliefs, thoughts and ethnicity. A sense of certain sentiment works between one ethnic group who shares one common emotion of personal attachment to each other. Like We belong to India; our nationality is introduced to be an Indian. There comes the very basic nature of national integration. Through this socio-psychological process one definite nation, a sense of unity is created. Mainly India is the multi-ethnic nation that maintains its integration instead of its problems like casteism, communalism, social, economic and geographical diversions.
Diversity: The form of diversity or the literal meaning signifies certain discriminations that diverse one community from another. This diversion can be caused by a simple sense of detachment towards other groups. An antagonistic emotion takes place against different communities. In Indian subcontinent, which is diversed in its social, economic and geographical fields differs from the other parts of the same country. North Indian atmosphere, resources, occupation, language, cultural ethnicity and thoughts are totally different than its southern part. Even in case of religious beliefs India can be parted into fragments. Region, Sentimental values, rules and norms everything differ in its way.
Nation as whole: India today is walking towards secularism. It is an integrated country apart from its certain points of discriminations. Apart from all political issues it finds ‘generalization within plurality’. Partitions and discriminations were evolved part of the British policy of ‘divide and rule’. But it’s the ‘we-feeling’ that binds all the different communities in India with an inseparable sacred thread. All the patriotic songs enchant our minds and still we love the great national hero Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose as a whole or to be an integrated part of it. Instead of diversity, we are collectively sympathetic towards our nation’s problems and conspiracies. We stretch our helping hands out regardless of community or religion in case one community needs help. India can be considered to be the best instance of unity in diversity. Various other countries are being inspired by Indian subcontinent and its emotional values. And the geographical association of the country makes it as something creative art of nature and universe.
Conclusion: Along with the development of Indian society, people are perceiving themselves to be connected morally and spirituality to be the citizen of the country. Human beliefs are changing subsequently. The conservatism is replaced with rationality and passion. People are to find new morality and essence out of old conservatisms. India is now against stereotypes to receive newly refined idealization, that reflects the more integral country in future.
