Streets and Skies of Kolkata / Calcutta | 2019
India is diversified. "Unity in Diversity" is what we define our nation. Secularism was introduced into our Constitution. We are people who define ourselves tolerant of every religion and no discrimination whatsoever will be practiced in our nation based on color, creed, sex, caste.
Reality is - not every corner of India will ever be following this clause of our constitution. India is a multiverse. Not one state resembles the other. The south doesn't look or feel like the east, the north doesn't speak the same language as the west. We have different dance forms, music genres, clothing, cultures, that too only based on territorial perimeters, religions kept aside. And then we have our historical brotherhood bond with our neighboring country Bangladesh, which is way closer to where I stay, that is West Bengal. Bangladesh and Bengal speaks in same language, different dialects. If you don't stay in every state or territory of India you won't ever know how diversified each corner of our nation is. With all the narrow mentality some people have I'd still say India as a geographical subcontinent is amazing. You don't have to concentrate on the poverty or dirty roads, people like me who stay here are efficient to do that part of thinking ourselves. You, as a visitor or tourist must make it a point to visit the amazing historically significant places and go through the events that happened in the past to this nation. I won't say you should check out all the nightclubs because just like other cities in the world each city in India has its own secrets of the night and I detest all things unhealthy. But just like so many like me who are multiracial exist in this world, India is a mixture of modern and ancient customs depending on region and religion. Diversified always. •
