Bankura (West Bengal), Dec 10 (ANI): Renowned poet Kaifi Azmi once said, “I’ve travelled across the globe, but India, in my eyes, is the epitome of co-existence. It is the epitome of love people have for each-other despite the fact that almost everything about them is different in different ways.” These words of Azmi beautifully portray India’s picture to the whole world. So, giving you a glimpse of it, today we take you to a small town in the West Bengal’s Bankura district, where people of all castes and communities live together with peace and harmony. Situated in the Bankura district of West Bengal, Beliatore is a small town known for the strong bond of brotherhood that exists between different communities living here. This bond can be very well seen at the different work places of the town that mainly consists of tailoring industries and provides livelihood to several people from different faiths. The people employed in these industries not just work together but also share a unique bond of friendship with each other. Irrespective of the fact that some of them are Hindu by religion and others Muslim, their daily routine is almost similar. They even share their meals, attend each other festivities and live like one large family. This is the real picture of co-existence in India, where people believe in mutual love shared respect and have regards for each other beliefs. Even though it has faced numerous challenges time and again, India’s unity in extreme diversity continues to strive and only grows with every new challenge.
