Where is our patriotism hidden?

Even a riot around us is just a matter of forwarding, discussion or agony.

It’s 73rd now.

<< Rewinding almost 20 years <<

It used to be 55th, 56th back then.

How cool it would be to wake up early and gather in masses, hear the same old speeches from the same principal for years. Just the number prefix will change every year.

After all the speeches, when the flag gets hoisted, the goosebumps we get a couple of seconds feels patriotic those days.

After grabbing the tri-colour toffees, we run to the dear teachers for extra ones. Every extra toffee boosted up our happiness!

>> Fast Forward to present >>

Behind the keyboard, we do not understand the difference between a republic day and an independence day!

Even a riot around us is just a matter of forwarding, discussion or agony.

Even after a lot of comfort and materials around us, we hardly find a reason for joy and happiness.

What a drastic difference! Where is our patriotism hidden!!

How do we unleash the patriotism in us?
