We read and hear every day that hatred is widespread in India nowadays. Media and a certain section of society are trying to prove that harmony and fraternity are a matter of past. Ganga Jamuni tahzeeb too is being projected as a thing of past. Many incidents like mob lynching help in approving this narrative. However, the point lies in changing this scenario/narrative.
BeyondHeadlines believes that if some people can spread hatred then some different people can come together to bring love and fraternity in society as well. We believe in Peace and Love, therefore we will try our best to keep the feeling of love and brotherhood alive.
#2Gether4India is the Campaign, which shows the commitment of Beyondheadlines in righting the narrative of mainstream media and bringing social justice to the grassroots level. It is this passion that we decide to move to the villages of India where the true India resides.
We will talk to the villagers about their example of interfaith friendships. We also plan to felicitate those locals who have worked for Communal Harmony in their life, which benefitted their village and society as a whole. It will bring great examples of how a village can sustain the feelings of love, peace and harmony.
We also plan to visit different cities, around 20 to take interviews of youngsters who can speak with enthusiasm and real concern for the need of communal harmony. We will make their videos and post them on various social media platforms.
Apart from interactions and video making, we will organise an all India essay writing competition on the same topic i.e. Communal Harmony and will welcome their suggestions for maintaining the Ganga Jamuni tahzeeb of India. For essay writing, we will choose three winners from all three languages, Hindi, English and Urdu and distribute prizes to them.
We will need reporters and cameramen for travelling to different cities and villages. We will also need a dedicated team for organising the award ceremony in villages and prize distribution for All India Essay Writing Competition. For all of these, we want a total amount of 5 lakhs INR.
