They are the future patriots of our countryRakesh was in the army and was on a short leave. It was republic day and flag hoisting was arranged in the nearby park by the local housing societies in that area.
When Rakesh reached there he found many people standing in the park around the flag which was to be hoisted soon. As Rakesh was wearing army dress the children were looking to him with curiosity. He smiled back to them.
Soon the flag was hoisted by a senior of the area and some flags and balloons were distributed to the children followed by sweets and chocolates. Some of the children did not get the flags. Rakesh saw these 4-5 children who were just standing and yearning for them.
Rakesh went outside the park and purchased some flags from a boy selling them at the other side of the road. He distributed these to the children and they started to wave it in the air and were very happy.
Rakesh was also feeling happy. He called them and they ran towards him.
He then lifted two of them and placed them on the top flat of the park railings and told them to wave it to the passers by. Now the children were very excited and started to wave and shout 'Jai Hind' and 'Vande Matram' to the people walking on the road who also started reciprocating to them.
Rakesh sat on the bench behind the children and was happy to see them and was thinking that they were in fact the future patriots of the country.
