When I was small, my dad always told me how important it is to love and respect every individual, be it our own family members or strangers.
He always gave me the example of a rainbow.
How people looked forward to see the rainbow after the rains. The colours when united looks so beautiful and have a different identity, just like our country. Unity in diversity.
The seven colours of RAINBOW always lived happily together.
One day the colours started to fight among themselves on how important and powerful they are individually. They forgot how beautiful they looked united. Each colour wanted to show off their own importance. Because of the fight they started living separately.
Kids got disappointed as they could no longer spot the rainbow after the rains and sunshine.
Rainbows were only in stories and pictures now. Soon people stopped looking for rainbow in the sky. The colours were so busy fighting that they never realized that slowly they were losing their significance.
The colours started living separately, sad and lonely.
They lost their charm.
One day a little girl heard stories about rainbow from her Grandmother. She was upset to hear about their fights and decided to make all the seven colours friends again.
She went to meet all the colours and showed them the pictures when they lived together. How happy and colourful they looked
Slowly the colours realized how powerful and beautiful they looked when united.
Together they brought smile and happiness into so many people’s life. They never fought again and promised to stay together.
If every individual realizes their role and importance in staying together, there will be no hatred in the world.
