A Hindu and Muslim kite-maker work together in the state of Gujarat spreading harmony
Gujarat, Jan 21 (ANI): Time and again, people in India have proved their unity through innumerable examples of friendship and acts of harmony. An example of this can be seen in India's western city of Ahmadabad where two kite-makers have been working towards spreading communal harmony through messages scripted on their kites. They make kites with messages of harmony written over them.
Radheshyam Gupta read out a short poem printed on one of the kites that speaks about the unity that exists between the people of different communities in India.
Radheshyam and Iqbal on their kites write about the growing influence of social media and even try to create awareness about pressing issues such as the ‘Save the girl child, educate the girl child’ initiative of the government, ill effects of consumption of tobacco and more. Their collection also comprises kites with speeches by India's iconic freedom leader Mahatma Gandhi, philosopher-thinker Swami Vivekananda, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and social activist Anna Hazare. The two men do not believe in discrimination on the basis of religion, and wish to spread the message of oneness among the people through their friendship and work.
