Active GD- Patriotic feeling can be instilled by making students say 'Jai Hind' or 'Jai Bharat'.In schools and colleges, to mark the attendance at the beginning of the class, the teacher calls the names of the students as per the attendance register. The students respond to show their presence by saying ' yes sir' or 'present sir' etc. The Gujarat State government has now decided to change this procedure. Now the students studying in this State should answer their attendance call by responding as 'Jai Hind' or 'Jai Bharat". This has been made mandatory from now onwards and a circular has been issued by the government to this effect. And this is a step that is very likely to be followed by most of the other states too.
The logic that has been put behind the order is that saying Jai Hind or Jai Bharat as a morning note will be a good way to enhance the patriotic feelings among the children.
Do you feel that such a step will really help in building up patriotic feelings among our children of the new age? If so why and if it is not sufficient, why?
Patriotism is a vast topic but let us restrict to the point in question. Will saying Jai Hind or Jai Bharat while answering an attendance call increase our patriotic feelings?
Let us have a practical, thoughtful and fair discussion with the present situation in mind.
General guidelines for adherence -
* The author of the thread can very well join as an active and effective participant.
*Please do not post responses that are not relevant to the GD in this thread.
*Read and understand the topic properly before coming up with arguments.
*Please stick to the topic. Do not deviate from the main subject. It is quite natural to draw connections or make references but one must make it a point to get back to the topic of discussion. Any deviation from the main topic that is likely to affect the flow of a discussion is not advisable. Take a stand and fight for it and avoid trying to maintain a balance.
*Do try to add on or elaborate on points already submitted instead of harping on the same point in different words time and again. It would be better if you distribute your arguments between the responses you intend to post instead of covering up all of them in one go. Please give detailed responses with valid points to support your argument.
*Do not get personal. Each participant in a debate is free to choose his stand and though one can and has to challenge and try to disprove another's point, it should be limited to the views only and not on a personal level. Let us not discard dignity and decency for the sake of cementing a view.
Let us have a healthy, active and fruitful discussion. The GD will close on 06th of Jan 2019.
Best participants will be selected depending on the number of participants and will be awarded suitably. Other participants will also be considered for cash rewards if found eligible.
So why wait? Read carefully, think properly and start penning down your points and arguments. Let the activity begin!
Note: The editor who is moderating the GD will have the final say (in consultation with the team) in matters of dispute (during discussion) and a point or guidance put forth as a response by the moderator need not be responded to by the participating members.
