About the Seminar

National Integration is of great significance in a country like India where varied cultures, religions and languages exist. Integration is not achieved in India because of communalism, casteism and linguistic differences. No progress can be made in the field of art, literature, science, technology and economy without integration. India cannot play an effective role in the international arena unless it sets its own house in order. We cannot enjoy peace and security unless there is mutual trust and goodwill among all sections of our people. National Integration is the awareness of a common identity amongst the citizens of a country. It means that though we belong to different castes, religions and regions and speak different languages we recognize the fact that we are all one. There are also great varieties in costume, food habits, and social customs. Geographically our land is diverse and there are amazing differences in climate. Despite all these differences India is a political entity, every part of which is governed under the same Constitution. We have to co-exist with each other peacefully, respect the culture and religion of our fellow Indians. In India we have multi-cultural, multi-lingual, and multi-traditional groups. Our constitution emphasizes the concept of ‘unity in diversity’ and expects every citizen of India to honour the feeling of national and emotional integration. The present seminar is an endeavour to develop a common identity, to create an atmosphere of mutual trust between various castes, sects, religions, regions, genders, ethnic groups and linguistic societies, to nurture the values of independence and democracy and to make India a real superpower. The outcome of three day discussion on various sub themes of this seminar will surely be of great importance in giving a positive direction to the society and go a long way in fulfilling the objectives of national integration.
