Coming across a caricature like the one above through my Facebook account, possibly transmitted by some friend of mine, I felt like giving it some space as a post on my blog. It talks of unity in diversity in a virtual sense. It’s a different matter that the sarcastic version of an Italian bai should have been replaced by somewhat a graceful word, but the same might not have been done possibly because the caricatures normally fall in the culture of cartoons. Originally the words like ‘unity in diversity’ were used by Dr.Radhakrishnan in one of his works, and this became most popular a coinage like very powerful a slogan in later years. The context in which the caricature so quoted above has been used quite fits into the current political scenario. It has a message more of prejudices and political manoeuvrings than that of the real ‘unity and diversity’ originally referred to by Dr. Radhakrishnan. India has a large number of castes and communities, and it can’t remain confined to a selected few for the purposes of unity. The much felt need of the country is to direct a solid approach on getting all the people of India with different castes and creeds united by uniformly championing the cause of their interests without playing any politics or self suited manoeuvres.
