Even this challenging situation would ease
Patriotism : I want to clean my house to make it look the best.
Nationalism : my house is the best house and I need you to acknowledge it.
I'm a patriot. Earth is my India. My country is my planet . I don't need to prove my feelings by visiting a nearby flag hoisting.
Is it mandatory? I don't think and believe so.
I acknowledge our freedom, struggles and sacrifices . I can stay at home and celebrate right?
If people want more audience for a flag hoisting then they need to make it entertaining. Flag hoisting and chocolate distribution merely can't attract many right?
Organizing dances,songs and drama can be done.
That way people would attend atleast for entertainment.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
Don't sweat the small stuff and it's all small stuff.
The people who do not have solidarity for the country and have no patriotic emotions are simply showing to others their fake faces by pretending to close their eyes while singing or delivering patriotic songs.
These people are the ones who will ask you why you were absent while hoisting the flag.
There are many people who are ready to sacrifice their life for the country but do not attend flag hoisting.
So who is the patriot - one who is blindly attending the ceremony or one who is the real patriot but not attending?
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
If you are busy and doing something good for the society whenever it is possible, you are much better than people just attend for sweets and chocolates and forget about the society the next moment. I don't think they are contributing anything to this society.
Every year we carry out flag hoisting function in our Organisation. We conduct games for the employees and winners will be given prizes during the lag hoisting function. Those employees who won the gifts will come 100% to receive their prizes but not with the interest in the function.
