That's how the Patriots are madeJust a look of the given picture transported me immediately to the group discussion based upon the topic that responding to attendance with 'Jai Hind' or 'Jai Bharat' would either instil patriotism in the children or not.
In the picture, the two little kids are waving the Indian national flag enthusiastically. To them, it's just a flag which they are continuously waving in the foggy morning of a chilly day which usually gives the grown-ups a shiver in their spine while going out in the open whereas these children in their winter clothes seem to enjoy the ongoing event relentlessly.
The children are not aware of what is the meaning of Jai Hind and Jai Bharat, in the same way, they are unaware of the relevance of the flags they are waving. It's obvious that the teachers, parents and others would definitely explain to them about their national flag and its importance. That's how the seed of patriotism is planted in these children from such a young age, and the Indian Flag becomes their heart and soul.
Suppose the children get the national flag of any other country to wave in some other event, Certainly, they would ask for the Indian National Flag only and reject the other flag. In a very sporting way, the feeling of being Indians gets ingrained in the children. See, these excited children who are engrossed in waving the Indian tricolour, don't you agree they are the would-be spearheads of India?
The awareness of being an Indian and the knowledge about the Indian National Flag automatically fills the national spirit within the kids, and that's how the Patriots are made. Today's little hearts of India with such a sweet smile on their face look to become the true Patriots. It is a treat to the audience, and also creates a grand expectation from the upcoming generation to fulfil the duties of true Indians.
