“We are, at almost every point of our day, immersed in cultural diversity: faces, clothes, smells, attitudes, values, traditions, behaviors, beliefs, rituals.” – Randa Abdel-Fattah
India is a land of cultural diversity. It is said in every 60km, you get to see a new culture. From hottest of summers to coldest of winters; from rainiest of the rainy seasons to driest of droughts, India represents an amalgam of different climates, and environment giving birth to different cultures born out of human’s will to conquer and survive.
Taking this in mind, the Toastmasters Club of Dwarka (TMCD) organized its 346th Meeting with theme “Cultural Diversity” and it was conducted on 26th August 2018. Yes, on the auspicious occasion of Rakhi itself. To complement the theme, few of the members wore their traditional dresses. TMOD Jolly, gave the audience interesting and little-known facts about Rakhi while GE of the day, TM Vaibhav showered us with little-known facts about Cultural Diversity of India itself. He also gave us a new way to think of cultural diversity by pointing out different accents and yet, how each of the audience has joined Toastmasters with a common goal – to improve their speaking and leadership skills.
