Our campaign slogan, ‘Blessed are the Peacemakers’ is from the Bible (Matthew 5:9 – Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the sons of God.), with similar references in the Quran (Surah Baqarah 11:15 – Do not make mischief in the earth, they say. Verily, we are in fact peacemakers) and Bhaghvada Gita (II – 62, 63, 65 – Without meditation, where is peace? Without peace, where is happiness?).
As we approach Independence days across the subcontinent, each of us has a reason to enjoy life in our countries. We want to know what those things are. From the flow of torrential rains every monsoon season to the smell of fresh samosas, or the wild beat of the bhangra mix at your cousin’s wedding, these things make us who we are.
So send in a 30 second video clip, telling us what you admire/love/enjoy about living in the subcontinent. The most creative message will be featured in an interwoven video message that will be released on YouTube and on our website.
