Managing our survival in the quest of a reformed state of living, here we are, the Indians already stepped in the 70th year of our independence ready to celebrate the #68th Republic day. While going through many other different opinions on the web regarding the patriotism of a citizen towards his nation I found a difference of opinion between the different age groups.
When asked about the findings, I feel unconscious to admit the reality of today. What I found is the wrath of the youth who has gone astray. #Republic Day or Independence Day, whatsoever you would like to enlist as a patriotic day, the youth of today lacks to understand the value towards its nation in the real terms in comparison to the ex-generation.
The statement might sound ridiculously rubbish, and not so entertaining but keep your hand on your heart and ask that how far has this statement of expression gone wrong?
While recalling the history I remember the old school days wherein I was taught by teachers who had a patriotic zeal of a nation lover, who had realised and absorbed the meaning of ‘#Desh Bhakti’ so deep, that it was further passed on to their taughts.
But the question is where did it go?
was it superficial then? or is it superficial now?
India as its republic has done a lot in terms of its growth. We Indians have been destined to follow its core commands coming from the heaviest constitution in the world, and this is where we lag. A number of malpractices which have taken place in India since its inception show how corrupt we have become.
Look at this nation and tell us what you can actually see?
The answer which echoed in my ears was that we have become self-obsessed. We lag in commitment, earlier it was not our habit but now it is like oxygen for us to be self-centered. We cry and crib for the present circumstances, but when it comes to taking action a one-day patriotism seems a better option in comparison to the commitment of building up the nation by becoming a citizen who strives to leave ‘Jugaad’ and agrees to be patient.
At the end, I would just like to share that “there is nothing bad in accepting our flaws. Acceptance is the first step towards betterment.” Let us all pledge to make India by becoming an Indian our forefathers wanted us to become.
This Republic Day, let us commit a little portion from our everyday life to build a nation by building ourselves…
#Happy Republic Day!
