Short Essay on Union is strength

This proverb can be illustrated with the story of a father who taught his sons the necessity of unity among them. The story thus goes: His sons were constantly quarreling among them. The father wished to teach them the value of unity. So, one day, he gave them a bundle of sticks and asked them to break the bundle. None of his sons could do it. Then he took out from the bundle one stick after another and asked them to break each stick. Even the weakest among them could easily break a stick. From this his sons learn the maxim “United we stand, divided we fall”. Since then they lived with perfect unanimity. This is true in the case of nation also.
