Anything about India

This month DT twist on the challenge theme is “Anything about India”.

Being a proud Indian, I have created two DT projects for the current month.

  • Unity in diversity:

Unity in diversity means oneness despite multiplicities. India is a classic example of this motto and has thrived over several decades with this phrase as its guiding principle. India is a country where individual or social differences in physical attributes, race, religion and culture are not seen as conflict; rather, these differences are looked upon as the multiplicities that enrich the society.

The quilled earring symbolizes and reinforces this oneness amongst us, the citizens of this great democracy.

“A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.” – Mahatma Gandhiji

  • The Peacock(National bird of India) has been a prominent feature in Indian literature as its resplendent beauty is a source of inspiration for many. It is a symbol of grace, joy, beauty and love.

Freedom is something that money can’t buy, it was earned through the struggles of many bravehearts. Let us honour them today and always.

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” – Mahatma Gandhiji

Happy Independence Day and Enjoy quilling!

Happy Independence day, India!

India – A beautiful country to live in with diverse culture.

I admire the following quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Where there is love there is life.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
My life is my message.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
Poverty is the worst form of violence.
Let us enjoy each and every moment of this life and impart a good value system for the next generation.
