But what was the reason that we did it in our childhood? Was it just out of fear of your teachers? I assume not. Then also things came from the heart right and we stood to hear the national anthem. It is not only about the feeling of patriotism it gives, but it also makes us realize how we are bound together as "Bhartiya". It also makes us realize that we respect our culture by heart. It gives a feeling of humanity and brotherhood.
Do what inspires you !!
I recently went for film at Madurai, in the cinema hall before the film start (I went to cinema after a break of three years).I saw everybody stood from their seat and stand till the Anthom is over.
In those days it was in practice of playing National Anthom in cinema halls at the end of film and many people honoured, I have seen.
It is our duty to honour the National Anthom and it should be even played in all offices
