Patriotism is an inner feeling. It is a feeling which every Indian has inside him. But this feeling is also becoming a trade these days. selling national flags, and related stuff has made this feeling enter the market. but this ultimately results in disrespect of the national flag. The national flag is respected on the Republic day and is thrown in the dustbin the other day.
It is a request to everyone please don’t buy our flags. And if you do so, then make sure you keep it with respect and don’t throw it. Act as a responsible citizen, don’t let anyone do so.
“The one who Picks up the national flag from the ground has more patriotic, than the one who hoists it.”
