We are proud to bring you everyday stories of Communal Harmony in our beautiful country. Throughout its history, India’s beauty has been its Unity in Diversity. India is the only country in the world that has these multitude of cultures, languages, cuisines, appearances, even huge variations in natural / geographical features and climates etc. Where else do you find such rich tapestry of human civilization in all its magnificent splendor and as many colors as the eye can feast. It is rightly called a “sub-continent” for this very reason.

But there is increasing onslaught upon it by right-wing forces. IAMC stands firmly to highlight, cherish and promote these pluralistic traditions of our land. Let us resolve to come together and strive to save our India from these polarizing forces.

If you have a interesting story that showcases India’s beauty, please submit it in our “Submit your Story” feature on top menu.
