THEY came. They marched. And they captured the hearts and minds of millions of their countrymen all over India.
They comprised tens of thousands of farmers and agricultural workers – women, men and children – from almost every state in the north, south, east and west.
They came with a rainbow of thousands of flags and banners that mingled in unity – red, green, yellow, blue, white – all except saffron.
They hailed from every caste, creed, language and religion – surmounting all these barriers. They truly symbolised the unity in diversity that is the idea of India.
