India, a country which is known for beautiful natural diversity, rich heritage, and culture. India taught the meaning of civilization to the universe. We live in a country where Ram leaves his throne and accepts 14 year exile to respect the words of his father.
It happens only in India.
But India has come a long way, we've have developed in terms technology, infrastructure, and economy, but India is losing what it is synonymous with- its culture.
We are developing at real pace, a kid who once went to school in 'khaki' pant and blue shirt on his bicycle, today goes to his school in his new Beetel, listens to music on his apple ipod, and is online 24x7 on his 3rd generation cell phone even in classroom.
Often wonder if we really have any patriotic self within us. Gone are the days when we used to struggle for our independence. Gone are the days when we were so very pumped up to get our country free . Are they really gone?
Not quite! Patriotism is way larger than that. It is about that feeling from deep inside, though little inhibited at time, though invisible superficially but yeah it is there within us..
The moment when you see a national flag.
The moment when you hear a good old fascinating patriotic song.
The moment you see Sachin getting a hundred.
The moment you see the newspaper saying a new advancement the country made.
