Understanding diversity means comprehending that each individual is unique. It also means recognizing our individual differences but not letting them become a dividing factor and instead allowing them to enrich our lives. India is certainly a brilliant example of Unity in Diversity because India has people of diverse religions, cultures, castes living together peacefully for many centuries. Students of Grade 6 celebrated diversity under the Social Science topic 'Understanding Diversity.' Their presentations showcased how we as a society do the same things but probably in different ways concerning how we pray, wear clothes, the languages we speak, the food we eat, and the cultural heritage we value. They also deciphered that unity in diversity is essential for a country because it is a very simple task to divide people with different views and ideas. The unity among the citizens of the country plays a great role in maintaining peace and prosperity in the nation.
