We live in a world where people from diverse regions, speaking a host of languages, following diverse religions and eating varied foods and dressing in different styles live together. They may be eating, dressing or worshipping in ways other than us. They are different. But because of this we must not look down upon them or consider them inferior to ourselves. This is called tolerance. In short, ‘respecting otherness of the other person’ leads to harmony in a society. It may be that they are different. But this does not make them bad. One has the right to follow what he feels right for himself. We must not show disrespect to his way of living. Only such a society can be called a healthy society.
