TriColour Flag:Not a Fancy Item

January 26 is about to come within 3 days.
Most of us buy Tricolor plastic flag and keep it on our vehicles, our work place etc in order to remember the day when we achieved republic state and also to respect the nation on behalf of Republic Day.
But what happens after this show-off ends within 1-2 Days? The national flag we see lying on road sides, even with garbage and we does not even bother about the lying national flag, so called "I am proud be an Indian, I love India, Chakde India, Jai Hind" etc which we feel on such days will not make us to pick the our National Flag and to give a respect to it.
To have our tricolor flag as an identity of us thousands of martyr patriots where sacrificed their life , and to keep our integrity thousands soldiers were shaheed for it and are baring all the difficulties to keep it safe and respectful, and lakhs of patriotic stories behind it. And if we do not give respect to our national flag which is an identity of us, then we are not to called Educated Indian Citizens at all!!!
Avoid buying plastic flags as it also adds to pollution. If bought then please take enough care to respect it all the time!!
Also please do not hesitate to pick the lying/flying national flags which you see in front of your eyes because many great people have flown their blood for it!!
Republic Day Celebration will only gets its meaning when we the people of this Republic Democratic Country involves ourselves with the nation.
Let us respect the nation symbols through out our life to show our real loving towards this most caring country.

2008: Where does human race heading?

One More Year 2008 is started!!
Many people celebrated, many reviewed the past year, and many set their New Year resolutions and welcomed 2008 with the hope to be prosperous.
In the name of freedom, celebration the human race is just heading towards becoming animals in jungle rather than becoming social animal. The 31st Dec 2007 night is exposed the same. Mad pub parties, drunken parties with drugs, disco nights, and mishaps created after these animalistic celebrations were just enough to understand the human race mind level.
1. In Mumbai city 2 killed and 12 injured due to a woman driving a car on those.
2. In Juhu beach 2 women were molested by more than 50 people without getting public help to their care takers.
3. In Delhi 300 youths were detained because of wild behaviour in New Year mid night.
Added to these there were minor mishaps in almost all the major cities on that day in terms of traffic chaos, uncontrolled public on roads etc.
Everywhere security policemen were posted in all the major cities of the country!! To control the wild mad animals affecting the public properties and people!!! Is this not a shame on mankind? Is this the way the human race to invite New Year?
Freedom, celebration or any word that the people involved in that animalistic behaviour may call does not meant to harm or affect in bad manner to others' life directly or indirectly. Moreover the enjoyment seems more self centric than towards public unity. Only rich people celebrated through parties etc and lakhs of rupees spent. And there is very less social values involved in that celebration as no where we can find any society friendly moralistic way of celebration. With more than 50% of people struggling for having bread to keep them alive, is it necessary to celebrate in this kind to invite New Year?
The globalisation, Industrialisation, IT, BPO, Call Centres etc have made some portion of population very much rich. But these have also decreasing the values in individuals. Stress, strain, busy life schedule, complex living style have made these people in need of enjoyment which makes them forget all these anxieties for a moment. This is the reason behind the raise of all the temporary pleasure making locations to grow like mashrooms. Though the people earn more money, it goes to make human weak either mentally or physically or both by the obesity, cardiac issues, cigarettes, alcohol, drug addiction, lust etc. Above all the social values will be lost with people living like machines!! These can be clearly seen in almost all metros’ life style.
It should be seriously taken by us. If not now we will be living like machines with flesh and bones to operate without utilising our brains. Customs, Tradition, Culture that had come long way to make the Bharathiya happiest and living self satisfied person in the world also taught how to live 100% with different way of living should not be overcame by western life style in the name of modernisation. We the youth should understand this and reason of living rather than just being exist in this world.
Respect other religions and their customs and also make them to respect yours as you are belonging to a tradition older than any of them.
