Secularity : Celebrating Harmony in the City of Joy

A Tale of Unity

Secularity—it’s not just a word; it’s a feeling, a vibe that fills the air of my beloved city of joy And let me tell you, it’s a feeling like no other. See, where I live, people don’t care about your religion. We’re all just one big, happy family, celebrating life together.

Living in a Mix of Secular Celebrations

In my city, secularity isn’t just a concept. It’s woven into the fabric of our daily lives. Take, for instance, the grand celebration of “Durga Puja”, when the Hindu Goddesses “Durga” is worshipped throughout the city.

Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs—all of us celebrate this festival together. In fact , there is a one park called Mohammad Ali Park, which is named after the Muslim leader, where people are united by our shared love for the Hindu festivities .

It’s a beautiful sight, seeing people from all walks of life coming together to dance, sing, and just enjoy each other’s company. And let me tell you, Eid is a highlight of the year. The aroma of delicious homemade biryani fills the air.

I can’t help but feel a pang of jealousy as I watch my Muslim friends enjoying the dish, unless I am invited. Oh, I have actually self invited myself to join them!

A Secular Tale of Love Transcending Boundaries

Now, let me share a story that truly warms my heart. A colleague of mine, with a Muslim background, fell head over heels for a Hindu guy. And you know what? Their love knows no bounds. Despite the challenges they face, they stand tall, their bond unbreakable.

What’s more adorable is, her family is a beautiful mix of cultures—Muslim, Christian, and a hint of Anglo-Indian heritage. It makes me think of a mini United Nations under one roof, and I’m so lucky to witness it firsthand.

Celebrating Our Differences

Living in my city means embracing diversity in all its forms. From coworkers planning interfaith weddings to friends sharing cultural traditions, every day is a celebration of what makes us unique.

And while the world outside may seem divided, here, in our little corner of the world, we’re all just one big, happy family.

Secularity is the the guiding light that brings us all together. May we continue to cherish and celebrate our differences, spreading love and joy wherever we go.
