Communal harmony is visible in Indian streets: TV channels distort the picture, show Hindu-Muslim discord--Communal Harmony project-26

Ram Navami was celebrated across the country yesterday. This is a photo of the procession.

An elderly Muslim man is offering sherbet to those who are part of the Ramnavami procession.

As friend, Jebroni sahab, writes, "India is not what you see on the Television channels".

"Majority of the people live in harmony and celebrate each others' festivals". He is damn right.

TV gives an impression as if there are troubled relations, an unending war, between religious communities and an unbridgeable gab, however, the reality is something different.

Meanwhile, you can read the Nazm, 'Hai Ram ke wujood be HindostaaN ko naaz' that was written by legendary poet Iqbal, in praise of Lord Rama.

Read the verse at this LINK.

[Harmony exists all around us but is often ignored. Instead, stories of hate, discord and communalism get spread easily. There are a million examples in our daily lives across India but they don't get promoted, hence, news of hate and discord gets heard more. Let's change it, now. 

Unfortunately, on social media, stories that divide the society, get shared more. It is worrying, we ensure that false propaganda must not spoil the reality and people should know about the syncretic culture and harmony that exists on the ground. This is a small attempt to change it through Communal Harmony Project]
