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.

34 things I learned from The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch

 Assume that you're on the verge of dying. You've probably a few months to live. You're suffering from some notorious form of cancer wherein you've very less hope of surviving. And then you think that you've very less time for all the things you wanted to do, for all the things you wanted to say to your loved ones, to your children and to the world. How would you want your children to remember you? Of what you thought about them? Your feelings for them? A few days ago I read the book - The last lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy was a professor at Carnegie Melon University and the book and the lecture is about achieving your childhood dreams. But more than that, I found the book as a good resource on parenting. Here are a few points that I found worth sharing: 1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured. 2. Engineering isn’t about perfect solu

We Have Lost Touch With Humanity

I was reading Robin Sharma's - "Who Will Cry When You Die?" . Love reading the book because I can start reading from any page. And each small lesson of these little book provides food for thought. I read this book whenever I'm short of time, but want to read. It is great. A small excerpt from the very first lesson of the book: We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy, but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library. We have e-mail, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity. We have lost touch with our purpose. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most. Isn't it worth pondering? We're busy checking our phones and emails every 5 minutes but we forget to check our purpose, our goals and our family members. We continuously try to refresh our news feed on Facebook
