Strength in Diversity.

Today I read a quote, "Diversity is not about how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another's uniqueness" and I realized how true it was. Today we live in a diverse world.

Today 236 countries in the world, with over 6.91 billion people , speaking 6912 languages (source: ethnologue) , from 21 different religions live on one globe.

Why go far, consider greatest democracy in the world, India , on 2% of the world's land lives 17.5% of the world's population with greatest variety in languages.

नमस्ते, º¡´£ Both the words translate into ‘hello’ in English.

people, 28 states and 7 union te
rritories, 387 different languages, 8 main religions, one nation – India. With median age of 24.9 years, India is also one of the youngest Nations in the World.

All we nee
d is the sensitivity towards this diverse culture and the sense to leverage it to make our country and the world---a better place.
