BeyondHeadlines and Mission Bhartiyam have teamed up for a unique national level writing competition named “#2Gether4India”. We invite original articles on communal harmony.
Any original article that can be a real story, a memoir or personal experience of the author related to communal harmony or helpful in the promotion of communal harmony in the country would be considered.
The broad objective of this competition is to promote interfaith dialogue and to make efforts towards multiculturalism, love and social harmony.
Being Indians, we all have exposure to diversity in terms of language, caste, religion etc. When we talk about religion, the fact comes that common people have many experiences to share about how they are connected with each other that strengthens the secular fabric.
As a human being we all believe and desire for peace, love and harmony and people at large are good by heart, however, sometimes, there are forces which try to disrupt social harmony and aims to disintegration that creates conflict, hatred, suspicion and violence. Through this move, we would like to provide an opportunity to people to express their sentiments, emotions, views and experiences as when such experiences would join together; this may create a wave where a positive reflection would be coming and then many stereotypes and suspicion would also be broken.
