Patriotism is not a 'one day affair'

It's India's Independence Day. 66 years ago, on 15th August 1947, India was freed from the Britishers rule.

Many Indians shared their patriotic feelings via status updates on Facebook and by tweeting on Twitter.

It seemed that as the citizens of India, it was everyone's moral duty to share their patriotism on the social networks.

However, this feeling will die the next day. Everyone would be busy with their daily chores and again after a year, their patriotism would wake up and would be displayed on social networks.

Patriotism comes from within, from heart. It has nothing to do with your status updates or tweets or the Indian Flag as your DP (Display Pic).

Patriotism is not a one day affair. It should be like unconditional love, like the love of a mother for her child. Love for your country and your countrymen.

Look at the armed forces. They are the real patriotic people. They are the ones who keep the patriotic fire continuously burning within them. And we are the ones who rent our it for a day every year by showing it on social networks or at the most visiting a flag hoisting ceremony near by our house.

Mera Bhaarat Mahaan. Jai Hind.
