GNITS- Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat

About Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat:

The idea of a sustained and structured cultural connect between people of different regions was mooted by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi during the Rashtriya Ekta Divas held on 31st October, 2015, to commemorate the 140th birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

Honorable Prime Minister propounded that cultural diversity is a joy that ought to be celebrated through mutual interaction & reciprocity between people of different States and UTs so that a common spirit of understanding resonates throughout the country.

Every State and UT in the country would be paired with another State/UT for a time period, during which they would carry out a structured engagement with one another in the spheres of language, literature, cuisine, festivals, cultural events, tourism etc. For example, Andaman and Nicobar Islands is paired with Lakshadweep during this period, Andaman and Nicobar Islands’ People would attempt to learn key words of Lakshadweep and vice-versa, Andaman and Nicobar Islands’ people would perform folk dances, while Lakshadweep would perform Folk dance of Andaman and Nicobar Islands’ at staged events etc. This pattern of cultural adoption of the partner State/UT would be followed by all states and UTs.


The broad objectives of the initiative are as follows :-

To CELEBRATE the Unity in Diversity of our Nation and to maintain and strengthen the fabric of traditionally existing emotional bonds between the people of our Country.

To PROMOTEthe spirit of national integration through a deep and structured engagement between all Indian States and Union Territories through a year-long planned engagement between States.

To SHOWCASEthe rich heritage and culture, customs and traditions of either State and Union Territories for enabling people to understand and appreciate the diversity that is India, thus fostering a sense of common identity.

Key Themes for Interaction:

To celebrate the idea of India as a nation wherein different cultural units across varied geographies coalesce and interact with each other, this glorious manifestation of diverse cuisine, music, dance, theatre, movies & films, handicrafts, sports, literature, festivals, painting, sculpture etc. will enable people to imbibe the innate chord of binding and brotherhood.

To make our people aware about the seamless integral hull of the Modern Indian State spread across a vast landmass on whose firm foundations, the geopolitical strength of the country is ensured to benefit one and all.

To impress upon people at large about the increasing inter-connectedness between the constituents of various cultures and traditions, which is so vital for the spirit of nation building.

To induce a sense of responsibility & ownership for the nation as a whole through these close cross-cultural interactions as it intends to build up the interdependence matrix unequivocally.

To create learning ecosystem between the partnering states i.e Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep so that they benefit from the best practices of one another by establishing a State to State Connect.

EBSB Cultural Exchange Program:Visit to GGSCOP, Haryana.  In Jan, 2020:-

 No other country in the world is as uniquely mysterious as India since it is multi-cultural multi-lingual and multi-religious nation. Nowhere in the world, people belong to different traditions and cultures, religions and languages live together so peacefully. Only in India, the feeling of ‘Indianness’ is as divine as we live in ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. The programme, Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat based on Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s dream of “one India”, was announced by honourable Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on 31st of October 2015 on the occasion of Patel’s birth anniversary to reinforce the concept of “Unity in diversity” and national integration. The programme blessed all of us with incredible opportunity to celebrate a sense of nationhood and more importantly, the feeling of oneness by giving us first-hand information and hands on experience of our rich heritage and culture through this cultural and social exchange initiative across the states. The main objective of EBSB programme or a campaign to exchange culture among different states, we feel has been successfully accomplished.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) which is the nodal agency for this initiative paired our college with Guru Govind Singh College of pharmacy of Yamuna Nagar, Haryana.

We the 8 teachers along with 20 confident and ‘creative creatures’ of GNITS (G.Narayanamma Institute of Technology for women, Hyderabad) of various departments, set out on an adventurous journey to Yamuna nagger on 9th January 2020 from Secunderbad station. Though it was not a Himalayan Expedition, though it was not a rock climbing, and river crossing, but standing in the face of bitterly biting freezing cold has given adventurous experience for all of us. 38 hours long and tedious journey came to an end and we reached our destination on 11nth midnight at 1.30am.   By the time we reached our destination – Yamuna nagar, two men by name Mr. Abhishek and Mr. Rohith received us with warm welcome in bitter cold.

Our first days programme started with informal interaction. After a quick exchange of pleasantries, we along with faculty members of Guru Govind Singh college of pharmacy, as part of our programme visited busy bustling local market called Meena bazar where we explored the market without leaving any stone unturned and made the most of the street food like – Aluka tikki, gol gappe, Momos both fried and steamed, ice cream in freezing cold weather, mouthwatering and lip-smacking  crispy zilabies, carrot juice and what not, we didn’t leave or compromise on anything.


The second day, we were taken to the nearby village called Mandebary, where we spent some time going around the village wishing the elders with the greetings- ‘Ram Ram Thai and Ram Ram Thou’ as sign of respect and visited RPSF- Railway Protection Service force on the same day.  We tried some training activities that they undergo on a regular basis as part of their training program.  Soon after we returned from RPSF, we had different varieties delicious traditional delicacies offered by the family members of Ms. Geetha mam who is an integral part of Guru Govind Singh College of pharmacy.


Third day, we were on the campus of Guru Govind singh college of Pharmacy spent time, visiting labs, interacting with students and finally took part in Lohri festival and celebrated the festival with exuberant energy. With lots of excitement and cheerfulness we danced along with them.

Forth day, we were taken on a field trip to Kurukshethra which includes visiting both historical and tourist places. The places like Kurukhethra university, Bhrahma Sarovar which is known for its beauty and serenity and the actual battlefield between Kouravas and Pandavas and where Bhagvith Githa was delivered to Arjuna by Lord Krishna to motivate him to wage the war. The picturization artificially created over there, left an indelible impression on our minds and hearts. The Most fascinating thing about our trip was, attending Haryani weeding ceremony on the same day when we visited kurukshethra. Without wasting our time, we directly went to function hall.  Tasted More than 10 different varieties of starters without leaving anything behind and left some room for actual delicious dinner delicacies.

The day that we were eagerly waiting to visit the Golden Temple has somehow got materialized with so much of to be or not to be.  We hardly slept the day before we left for Amritsar as we had to be in Amritsar at the earliest opportunity.  And to be able to spend some quality time in the temple and leave for Wagah border which is known and famous for ‘beating retreat ceremony’. We could witness grand retreat ceremony of lowering of the flags before sunset which is a usual everyday military practice between India and Pakistan.

The cultural fest was organized on the final day. We the confident and creative students of GNITS within no time learnt Haryani dance and performed so immaculately which really enthralled all of them. We also represented the culture of Telangana through another dance performance and the combination of both Telangana and Haryana. The day was spent with full of activity which began from quizzing our basic knowledge of Haryana culture to singing and dancing.


The hospitality that we received throughout the programe (EBSB) is extremely commendable. Cooks in the kitchen especially, their unconditional love felt by all of us. The only two phrases that they used in the dining hall, ‘Lelo Bheta and Kalo Bheta’ which was so thought provoking.

Finally, we would like to let you know our major learning outcomes of the EBSB programme.

Major Learning outcomes:

Got to know different kinds of people and their temperaments- especially in the train journey

Learnt to adjust with everyone and got along with each other without seeing the differences

Realized that the world out there gives us new challenges on a regular basis

Witnessed that our life is far better than many

Cultural exchange programmes like this encourages learning and exposes us to different aspects of life

Able to come out of our cocoons and became so jovial by playing many funny games during travel

Learnt that life is not meant to be serious

Realized that sense of oneness or unity in diversity comes with practice not with preaching

 Yuva Sangam Phase-3 Programme at Banaras Hindu University (BHU),Varanasi from November, 28 to 30, 2023

The Yuva Sangam programme Phase-3 was led by IIT Hyderabad, Telangana who selected 42 members from various colleges across Telangana. The 42-member team comprised of 2 gent and 2 lady faculty and 18 girls and 20 boys embarked on a cultural exchange mission to Varanasi led by BHU.

The Director of IIT, Hyderabad Dr. B.Srinivasa Murthy addressed the team and flagged off journey along with Dr.Saurabh Sandilya and Mrs.Mithali from IITH on November 26th at 10.30 am from Secundrabad Railway Station. The BHU authorities in association with IRCTC, Lucknow made arrangements for 3 AC reservation and food.  We reached DDU Nagar Railway Station on 28th early morning around 4 am as the train was late by 13 hours.  The long journey fatigue was vanished by the warm welcome received from the BHU, Varanasi team led by Dr. Nanda Lal who waited for us all through the night. Accommodation was given at International hostel, BHU which was excellent. The CRPF police protection was provided throughout the visit to ensure safety of the team.

The program aimed to offer a comprehensive understanding about traditions, culture, history  and development of Varanasi, known as mini India with diverse  people settled there. It is a life time experience to go to BHU, a century old premier university established in 1916  by great Visionary  Sri. Madan Mohan Malavya to provide quality Education to the Indians

Day 1 (November 28, 2023)

A welcome meeting with the Registrar, Director and Nodal Officer was arranged to enable   formal introduction of members from Team Telangana and GNU. It is followed by visits to the Precision Engineering Hub at IIT, Varanasi and historical places such as Lal Bahadur Shastri’s ancestral home, the Ramnagar fort which was very captivating. We got an opportunity to see the ancient amazing paintings and sculptures at Bharat Kala Bhavan. The latest and sophisticated research infrastructure established at CDC centre is a jewel in the crown of BHU to support scientific inter-disciplinary research and development in India. The day concluded with mesmerizing cultural performance with dance, vocal and symphony with musical instruments by BHU students and staff belonging to School of Performing Arts which is praise worthy and never forgettable. In this event, we could meet and listen to few Padma Shri Awardees Shri. Pandit Ritvik Sanyal, Shri. Pandit Shiv Nath Mishra about the Hindustani Gharanas and tremendous contribution made by them to the world of music.

Day 2 (November 29, 2023)

 Unfolded with a visit to Sarnath, exploration of the Archaeological Museum to understand the history and patronage of Buddhism at Varanasi. It is followed by our visit to very serene, pleasant, lush green and huge Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies, where we were accorded a grand reception and shown the campus by the university authorities. The Vice Chancellor’s address was very thought provoking and enriching. It is followed by visits to Kabir Chaura, Kabir Math and to the houses of eminent musicians and dancers honoured with Padma Sree, Padma Vibhushan and Bharat Ratnas in Padma Street.  It is a life time opportunity to meet many of their families staying there. The day concluded with a traditional dinner of litti chauki after a meeting with  Padma Sree Dr.Sudhir K. Jain, Vice Chancellor, BHU at his office.

Day 3 (November 30, 2023)

Began with Subha-e-Banaras at Assi Ghat, followed by a morning walk along the ghats. Visits to the birthplace of Rani Jhansi, Tulsi ghat, various temples and a boat ride during the Ganga Arti at Dasashwamedha Ghat which enriched our cultural experience. The visit to  spacious and renovated Lord Vishwanath temple through special entrance provided a wonderful and memorable opportunity to have satisfying darshan of Lord Shiva, Mata Annapurna and Mata Visalakshi during the auspicious Karthika Masam.

The program concluded with a heartfelt valedictory function.

Throughout the journey, we embraced the 5Ps – Paryatan (Tourism), Parampara (Traditions), Pragati (Development), Paraspar Sampark (People-to-People connect) and Prodyogik (Technology). The students, filled with immense happiness and gratitude, bid farewell to the BHU team (December 1st, 2023), reaching Hyderabad on  December 2nd,  2023 with nostalgic memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.


 I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Honourable Prime Minister Sri.Narandra Modi Ji for EBSB Yuva Sangam initiative to promote national integration and unity in diversity among youth who are architects of modern India.

My sincere Thanks to authorities of Ministry of Education, AICTE and IRCTC, Lucknow for their constant support.

My heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of the organising committee of EBSB Team of BHU Varanasi, special mention should be made of Dr.Nanda Lal, Dr.Chalapathi, Dr.Tripathi, Dr.Venu Gopal, Dr.Sree Rama Chandra Murthy, Dr.V.N. Mishra,  Dr.Neelam Srivatsava,         Dr. Jasminder Kaur and Research Scholars Mr.Santosh and Mr.Shravan and others.

I would like to extend my sincere Thanks to IIT- Hyderabad Director, Dr. B. Srinivasa Murthy Sir,  EBSB Team from IITH Dr. Saurabh Sandilya and Mrs. Mithali for providing us an opportunity to be a part of Yuva Sangam Phase-3.

Last but not the least my sincere Thanks to the Management and Principal of G.Narayanamma Institute of Technology and Science (for Women), Hyderabad for their  guidance and support.

 Positive Things 

  • Excellent hospitality (Accommodation, Very affectionate  BHU team and very delicious food)
  • High security measures.
  • The quality of T shirts, caps and bags was very good.
  • Very enriching, intellectual, cultural and spiritual experience gained through BHU Varanasi visit.

 Suggestions for improvement 

  • I would like to suggest that advanced planning for reservation of train tickets is needed for long distance journeys. We missed Dev Dipavali on Kartika Purnima as the special train got delayed by 13 hours which was very unfortunate.
  • Minimum 5 to 6 days programme is needed to cover places like Varanasi to explore completely.
  • Conduction of quiz, cultural competitions, sharing of knowledge between the students of IITH and BHU Varanasi would go a long way to build up and expand the team network.
