Unity is Strength (Sanghatan Me, Shakti Hein)
Narrator: This is a small play depicting the importance of Unity. Here is an old man in a village. He has 4 children. He is worried because his children are always fighting among themselves.
Scene: All the children are fighting with each other.
Child 1: Father, he (II) does not work at all. He is very lazy.
Child 2: You are lazy and cunning. I hate you. Father, I don’t want to live with him.
Child 3: Father, he always takes away my things.
Child 4: Don’t lie in front of father. Father, he is a liar.
Father: Children !! Enough. For God sake stop fighting. Come here.
(They all come near him)
Father: Each one of you go and get a stick from our backyard.
(They all come back with a stick)
Together: Father, we have the sticks.
Father: Now, break them in to pieces.
Children: Yes, we did. That was so easy.
Father: Now, tie all those pieces together with a string.
Children: Here it is ready.
Father: Now try to break it.
Children: Father!! It’s not breaking. It’s strong now.
Father: All of you learn from this simple example. You could break them when they were single but could not even bend them when they were together.
Child 1: Yes father. Now we understand that Unity is Strength.
Child 2: We promise you that we will never fight and separate.
Child 3: We shall always work and live together.
Child 4: “Sanghatan Me, Shakti Hein”
