At the heart of it all, India is a secular nation. Here, people belonging to different religions live in peace as one community. However, there are certain forces that try to stir controversy and violence between two communities. But the people always fight back, reminding us that love always triumphs hate. Here is an example.
A woman named Debotri Ghosh, who works as a writer, took to Twitter to share a picture of a humble repair shop in Kolkata. It is run by two men, a Hindu and a Muslim, and the name of the shop is ‘Dui Bhai’ or ‘Two Brothers’.
The shop is located in Kolkata’s Kudghat area and the two men in the shop repair shoes and leather bags.
In her tweet, Debotri wrote, “A neighborhood shop run by a Hindu and a Muslim. The name of the store is ‘Two Brothers’. With time, the shop that repairs shoes and leather bags have become smaller.. But still exists.”
Have a look:

The shop and bussiness would be small, the human bond and the universal brotherhood of the human race grows bigger and bigger.
It survives and the need to keep body and soul together grows too.!❤️🙌🙌👍🙏🙏🙏
