The theme of international unity was highlighted in a carnival-like atmosphere at a special event held at the Soka Gakkai International of Hong Kong. About 500 students and parents enjoyed the recent Secondary School Division Carnival '96, held on the school premises, before the youngsters went back to class. One of the main items on the carnival agenda was a drama about worldwide co-operation under the banner 'International Culture'. In the play, an aircraft carrying people from different countries is forced to make an emergency landing on an isolated island. But the stranded passengers quarrel continuously because of their differing cultural customs. Unable to come to any kind of agreement, they ask the island chief to give them a boat so they can depart. Angered by this lack of tolerance among the passengers, the island chief turns down their request. Eventually the stranded people realise that 'unity' and 'mutual understanding' are the keys to survival and peace. So they decide to present a folk dance from their own countries to please the chief. At last, he accepts their request and they return home. Following the play, the students were divided into two discussion groups. 'Cultural Exchange' and 'World Citizenship' were the topics for juniors and high school students respectively. The high school students were presented with an identity of different countries before the discussion, and were given different treatment according to their identity. At the discussion, the students said that after playing the game they were determined to treat others on an equal basis.
