The spirit of national integration is the most distinguishing feature of a vast and heterogeneous country like India with an awesome diversity of cultures. It leads to dissolution of all parochial differences. It has helped India build a national identity and national character, promoting a feeling of unity, solidarity and cohesion despite socio-cultural, regional, religious, linguistic and economic diversities. There are various occasions that require you to speak on the deeply meaningful theme of National Integration. Here, we are providing you two speeches to help you deliver a powerful speech on National Integration.

Speech on National Integration

A very Good Morning to all present here! I am standing here to present a speech on the topic – ‘National Integration’. It is a very significant aspect as it has a deep bearing on the country’s unity and integrity.

What exactly does National Integration mean? It means the realization of collective identity among the natives of a country. It signifies that even though we all belong to diverse religions, regions, castes and speak different languages; we must always feel that we all are one. Such feeling of oneness is very crucial for building a prosperous and strong nation. The real meaning of integration is the existence of multifarious identities with a unifying thread.

In the words of Benjamin Franklin – “National integration is the assimilation of the entire people of a country to a common identity.”

India has a vast land and people from diverse communities, cultures and castes inhabit the space. It seems almost impossible to hold all of them together and it was owing to these religious and cultural differences that the country lost its independence in the past. Now that our country is free, it should be our first and foremost responsibility to preserve its integrity and honour from external threats and internal dissension.

National Integration not only helps in the formation of a strong country, but also encourages the development of its people. In India, the period from 19th November to 25th November is celebrated as the National Integration Week to raise awareness about the subject matter among the common public.

The idea of National Integration has also led to the obliteration of social and religious differences. So, if people of our country stand in unity, many societal issues can be eradicated. People of different faith and communities who used to uphold their religion over others are gradually realizing the importance of oneness and are standing in support of the country’s unity and honour.

National integration has led to the formation of an invisible thread of unity which binds different parts of the country. It has certainly added to the country’s strength. During the struggle for Independence also, people of our country came together to win freedom from the unjust foreign rule.

In the end, I would like to say that we as Indian citizens must stand united for protecting national security. There is a famous citation by Emanuel Cleaver on National Integration which says that “There is more power in unity than division”. Hence, we must always remain united irrespective of all our social, linguistic and religious differences.

Thank You!

Speech on Nation Integration – 3

Hello All! Greetings of the Day!

Thank you for taking your time out and being a part of this occasion. By seeing such an enthusiastic and intelligent audience, I feel honoured to have got the privilege to address you all.

Today, I would like to draw your attention towards the reason for the survival and progress of the nation since time immemorial: ‘National Integration’ or ‘Rashtriya Akhandata’.

As laymen, what we understand from the word ‘Integration’ is that, it is an amalgamation of diverse or different things in a single hole. So, what does ‘National Integration’ mean? It is simple: it is the integration or feeling of togetherness among followers of diverse religions, regions and ethnic backgrounds.

Thus, National Integration is the meeting-point of diverse cultures and traditions, etc of a nation. It is a positive aspect that rides over the differences as well as inequalities among people or citizens of the country.

National integration or unity of a country can be defined as the process which brings together the culturally and socially diverse groups into a single territorial entity and leads to the establishment of a national identity.

For a nation to prosper and develop it is important to be integrated and united from within. It is very important for a country to preserve its national integration. The feeling of oneness and togetherness among the citizens of a nation is very important for its overall stability and growth. We all should understand that collective are precisely more efficient than separate efforts. People should feel and live with unity within a nation and make the national identity a unifying power.

National integration is a sentiment which particularly binds people together into one common bond of a nation despite differences in terms of religions, castes, social and economic backgrounds or languages.

A nation should be capable of dealing with all the hurdles that come in the way of oneness. These hindrances are very common; we have seen so many casteists, religious and linguistic clashes from time to time. These issues make the country look weak, and thus may prompt anti-India forces to weaken our national integration, which we should never allow to happen.

A country’s citizens should be synthesized into a unified whole, they should live with harmony and must ensure to be recognized as one entity. These traits help to build a positive consciousness and identity of the country. And, yes each one of us has an important role to play in this task.

I, as a citizen, understand that each one of has something to contribute for strengthening the national unity. If we focus on our thoughts and guide our actions towards the acceptance of every other person like ourselves; we will always be a contributor towards the integration of diverse beliefs, cultures, castes and traditions of our country. Our thoughts make or break us. Our thought of oneness will enable us to get things together and ensure the obliteration of vast differences into one entity.

Please inculcate positive thoughts in yourself and support the integration of different aspects of our nation and help in promoting the ‘National Integration’.

Thank You!!

Speech on National Integration – 4

Respected Chief Guest, Members of the Faculty and Friends,

I feel honoured to speak here today on the subject that is close to all our hearts. The issue of national integration is central to our very life. Our nation, which is our motherland, is what provides us sustenance. In its absence what would our life be? We belong to India and India’s irrevocable unity and integrity is what means everything to us.

In unity lies strength. We observe this in Nature. We see herds of elephants, for instance, moving about in jungles, protecting their young ones, trumpeting in the event of danger and feeding together.  Likewise, we see gregarious birds, like the mynas, sparrows and babblers that fly about, feed and roost together.

Through unity and togetherness come strength, power and the resistance to destruction. Unity and integrity form the very quintessence of a nation’s existence, prosperity and power.

National integration for India gains significance due to the immense diversity that characterizes it. While we take joy in the fact that diverse faiths, traditions and customs define our population, we are equally proud that we are united as a country with strong nationalistic fervour.

Every Indian is proud of the national spirit shared by the people of the nation. That indeed is the integrating foundation.

The people come together in defending the unity and integrity of the nation. When it comes to safeguarding our territory, the braveheart Indians will go to any extent to put their own lives at peril for the cause. We are ready to face any hardship to protect the country and its heritage. Our nation’s natural wealth and cultural heritage, safety and pride, unity and integrity, are all for us to protect. And we would never be willing to lose any of it at any cost. Isn’t it?

What is it that binds us all in this noble and valorous task? It is our strong, abiding and unifying love of India. At all times it is the nation that comes first. And this shared hope, destiny and passion of the Indian people makes for national integration.

National integration is really an irrevocable unity of the people. It is the people who strengthen the glorious idea of national integration. Indeed, the contrary holds true too. Disintegration stems from separatist tendencies in the people, and that fosters only weakness. A united nation becomes invincible. And that makes for the safety and security of the land and its people.

It is tolerance and harmony that can bind the people together in a spirit of common brotherhood and peace. And peace and harmony always foster progress and prosperity of the nation. National integration forms the basis for a strong, wealthy and powerful country. It creates economic power, promotes social vibrancy and protects cultural diversity.

As Indians we all stand together to uphold the noble and lofty ideas and ideals of our great nation’s forebears and to keep the Indian flag flying high always.

Thank you!
