India is the land of unity in diversity. From North to South and from East to West, there is no dearth of diversity in our country. Cultures, languages, colors, cuisines get beautifully amalgamated yet maintain their individual essence. To celebrate the spirit of the country and to create awareness about cultural diversity, EBSB (Ek Bharat Sreshtha Bharat Club) organized an essay writing competition for the students of KIET Group of Institutions on the eve of our Republic Day, 25th January 2020.
