Solution

National Unity is possible when citizens of that State exhibit psychological oneness, solidarity, and shared values. It is not homogeneity but a form of ethnic, religious, and linguistic acceptance.
Regional aspirations occur in forms like demand for separate States, language issues, etc., Regional aspirations have their roots in historical linguistic/cultural issues or maybe a product of regional political outfits. Sometimes, regional aspirations may even become secessionists as in the case of the Khalistan movement. India has tried to reconcile regional aspirations with national unity by creating a federation with a strong center, creating smaller States as well as the linguistic reorganization of States.
