Unity in diversity is a concept of “unity without uniformity and diversity without fragmentation”. This shifts focus from unity based on a mere tolerance of physical, cultural, linguistic, social, religious, political, ideological or psychological differences towards a more complex unity based on an understanding that difference enriches human interactions.

Keeping this in mind, National Unity Day or Rashtriya Ekta Diwas was introduced by the Government of India and was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014. The intent is to pay tribute to Vallabhbhai Patel who was instrumental in keeping India united.

The celebrations started with a multilingual open mic, where around twenty students participated by reciting their works in their regional language to prove that language isn’t a barrier to understand one another’s feelings and emotions. Poems in languages like Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali, Hindi, Telugu, Avadhi and English were some of them.

Not only that, the members of NSS-SVC prepared a drama on the same topic, followed by Bhangra. The whole venue was decorated with posters, ribbons, balloons and gave a very aesthetic atmosphere for the people to come together and celebrate. A unity wall was made so that people could express their views and opinions regarding the same. A huge turnout of both teachers and students was noted. The event ended with a Flash Mob where students danced on various songs together, regardless of any inhibitions. The event was a huge success and was appreciated widely by the students and the faculty.
