Celebrating Unity – International Solidarity Day


Union or Fellowship arising out of common responsibilities or interests. 

What can be a greater live example of human solidarity than a group of ethnically diverse people staying at The Hosteller. Just enter the common area of The Hosteller to experience what human solidarity means in practical life.

This year celebration of Human Solidarity Day comes after leaders of the world adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure dignity for all.

To show the importance of solidarity, I would like to quote Lech Walesa “The sole and basic source of our strength is the solidarity of workers, peasants and the intelligentsia, the solidarity of the nation, the solidarity of the people who seek to live in dignity, truth and in harmony with their conscience”. The quote highlights the effective functioning of the world due to the integration of the Workers, Peasants and the Intellectuals.

Solidarity is a seduction that integrates the variance and asymmetry, sticks them together into an amalgamation and sustains it with the universal values of human rights. Hence, International Solidarity creates a link across opposites and differences rather than advocating homogeneity.

Therefore, on the occasion of the United Nations International Human Solidarity Day on this 20th, connect to the diverse people of the world and get to know their heterogeneous interests in a respectful, nurturing and reciprocal relationship inoculated with the principles of Human Justice, Rights and Equity. Help any stranger that day in any way possible to connect and know his life.

And yes do visit The Hosteller to have a conversation over chai and samosas and experience solidarity together.
