Unity in diversity has been one of the main features of India. In India, people belonging to different castes, sub-caste, tribes, people of different religions and languages live together. This speciality makes Indians different from all the countries of whole over the world. This country is also multi-colouredas well asmulti-functional in the glanceof social and cultural terms.
The state of Assam, situated in the north-eastern part of India, is perhaps the only state in the country to carry all these characteristics, where many castes, sub-caste, tribes, different religions, powers, beliefs, traditions, dialects, languagesare visible. In spite of all thesevariations peace and brotherhoodremainsin this state. People of this place believe in harmonyand goodwill. From a religious point of view, this state is also considered as a symbol of inclusion and association, an example of which we find the Powa Meccaof the Muslims, the HayagrivaMadhavtemple of the Hindusand Gurudwara of the Sikhs are located in the Hajo region in the Kamrup village.
