UNITY IS STRENGTH
Every one of us must have heard this well known proverb “Unity is Strength”. No country which is torn by internal dissensions can stand against her enemies.
Lack of unity always ends in disaster. In the same way, differences among brothers ruin the family. Jealousy between Prithvi Raj and Jaichand gave an opportunity to Mohammad Ghori to conquer India. The quarrels among the Rajputs brought their downfall and humiliation. Rajputana was conquered by Muslim rulers in spite of the fact that Rajputs were matchless in bravery. If they had stood behind one banner, the history of India would have been different.
Everybody knows perfectly well that one thread is easily broken.
When threads are united into a rope, they cannot be broken easily. It is correct to say that we cannot face our enemy single handed as successfully as we can when we are united.
What is true in the case of kings and States is also true in the case of an ordinary man. Everybody knows well the famous story of an old man whose sons could not break a bundle of sticks which were tied together, but were successful in breaking the sticks when they were separated. This clearly proves that unity is strength. United we stand and divided we fell. No country can keep another country under control, if the people are united.
It is, therefore, necessary to remain united if we want to be free and self respecting citizens of the world. Division will lead us to our downfall. We become weaker when we are divided and strong when united.
