“Never before has the idea that peace is indivisible been so true as it is now.
Peace is not unity in similarity
but unity in diversity,
in the comparison and
conciliation of differences.”

Surviving Terrorism: The Power of Memories 

ANTONIO GUTERRES 67ab.jpg

It is our collective responsibility to remember and honour victims and survivors."

"There is a saying that goes: It takes a village to raise a child. Similarly, it takes a village to support a person in a humanitarian crisis. With record-high humanitarian needs around the world, this year’s World Humanitarian Day (WHD) builds on this metaphor of collective endeavour to grow global appreciation of humanitarian work . . .

India's Historic Independence

75th Anniversary

15 August 1947 - 15 August 2022

The World Celebrates with India!

Courtesy,  MERE PIX MEDIA

The endurance of India under the restrictive measures of 

British rule extended from 1858 - 1947: a year of

"jubilation" when "independence" was achieved 

for India to become a newly formed 

"free Nation."  The Constitution adopted in 1950

made India a democratic country, and this democracy has been

sustained since then. India's sustained democratic freedoms are

unique among the world's newly independent States.
