Speaking of living in a diverse community,what better place to experience it than India itself. With over 22 official languages,innumerable traditions and festivals as well as unimaginable range of cuisines,it is one of the most diverse country that one is likely to encounter in one's life.Being an Indian I recognize the value and importance of it's diversity and believe that this diversity is one of our main strength and the reason for our unity.

I am from a Hindu origin and believe me,even I dont know the exact number of festivals and traditions in my religion as according to me they are infinite! But just by looking at the enthusiasm and joy everyone feels while celebrating such festivals, even if it is not feom their religion, fills me up with joy and pride at living in such a place.My family has always been very religious and this quality has rubbed off on me as well.I have always been a God-fearing person and have believed that every act,wether it be good or evil, never goes away unpaid.All one needs to do is to be sincere and focussed towards his goals and he will definitely get the results as even luck is with the determined.

It has always been said that "We should learn from the mistakes of others" but why only mistakes! I believe that one can learn much more from the achievements of others than the mistakes.I myself have been really inspired by the works of Mother Teressa and Nelson Mandela.Their work has given me the belief that only good and humane deeds can transform the world.This realization has made me a broad minded person ,not guided by the small and meaningless customs of religious or racial descrimination rather a person with an equal place for everyone in his eyes.

it goes like this:

We honor the many different forms of diversity in our community. Your perspective is valuable because it comes from your life
experiences, family background, and culture. Please tell us about yourself and what you believe is the best way to share your perspective.
Also, what do you hope to learn from the experiences of others?

Use a ? question mark, because you phrased this as a question.

Speaking of living in a diverse community, what is a better place to experience than India?
