Unity has great value in every walk of life. It is a significant feature in human life. Without unity, we cannot do a single day. Unity means the state of being in agreement and working together. It refers to bring up the same opinion in a body or to work together by more than one person. The impossible tasks can be made possible if there is unity among us. Nothing can overcome us while we are united. There is a proverb that ‘unity is strength’. Therefore, our first and foremost duty is to maintain the unity of our life. Unity is essential to save any country and countrymen. People can enjoy a tension free life living united with the society. It is said that ‘united we stand, divided we fall’. Small particles of soil make a continent and small drops of water make an ocean. So we can do anything by maintaining unity. There is a good story about unity. An old man had three sons who always quarrel with each other. Their parents asked them not to quarrel. But they did not listen to their parents. The old man then tied five sticks together with rope. Then he said to his sons to break the bundle of sticks but they could not do it. Then he untied the sticks and gave one stick to each of his sons and told them to break it. This time they all broke their sticks easily. Thus, they realized that together they are strong.
It is true that we can break a single stick easily. On the other hand, to break a bundle of the stick is really difficult or impossible. Thus, we can realize the value of unity. Unity is a powerful weapon to be successful in trade and commerce. It is true that to gain any kind of freedom without struggle is not possible. The effects of unity in national life are very significant. Unity saves us form thieving, robbery, smuggling, hoarding, and mischief. At the time of flood, cyclone, drought earthquake, etc. people suffer a lot they need help then. To help those united efforts is a must. Therefore, to run a voluntary activity, unity is essential. For the betterment of the country and countrymen, we have to live untied.
