Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani

Amidst all the things going on in my life at this point of time Republic Day actually slipped out of my mind completely. It was my maid who reminded me that tommorrow gajra's will cost more than normal tomorrow (I had asked her to buy some gajra for me , to dress up for the traditional day we have on 26th Jan)

I am not sure how much this days holds important to me now when I don't consider myself to be over "PATRIOTIC". But I guess I am just patriotic enough to be thankful the I am a citizen of a free country where I have the freedom to live a considerably comfortable life.

:) I saw your post after I wrote mine! I guess every indian is a little patriotic atleast..its just that they've forgotten the feeling exists!

I am one of those who consider themselves "not patriotic".

Still I cry whenever I hear Jana Gana Mana sung with passion...

Good one..but the true meaning of Patriotism catches u only when u least expect it..or in my case when ur outside the country

yes one should be thankful for the fact that one is born in a free country. Those who believe that a country under the brits was much better irk me. Anyways... I guess a majority have moved on from those dakiyanoosi khayal

Here's my bit of Patriotism - Love the song - "Bless our Country " - Used to sing it at school - Lovely days *sigh*

Its the presence of more 'angels' refering to your last post - that makes our country 'tick' - my point of view :-)

you're damn right!..We have much more freedom than even countries like the US, where almost everybody is closely monitored by the govt, with the help of technology and intelligence!
