15 August is a very big day for each and every Indian as we became Independent so this day is always going to be very special for all the Indians. Even this is true that the feeling of patriotism only comes up during 15th August but you even see that when India wins in some sport you get excited or if something unfortunate happens on the border we do feel bad and get angry. I consider those feelings as patriotic. It’s not a feeling you will get every day but it does come in us at some or the other point of time. My favourite patriotic song is ‘Ae Watan’ from the film Raazi.
Our country had got independence on 15 August. I am really grateful to the freedom fighters because of whom got we are Independent today. Today our country is just known as a developing country, so I feel we should follow all the rules and regulations given by the government. When we visit different countries, we do follow all the rules and regulations there but we don’t do it here. So the first thing is we should keep our country clean and its a duty of each and every citizen to be loyal towards our country. We always talk about what should be done, but we never talk about what should we do. So completing our duty towards our country with honesty is important. My favourite patriotic song is Rang De Basanti Chola from Manoj Kumar’s film.
It’s tragic that we now carry our patriotism on our sleeves when it should exist in the air we breathe. There is no great mantra each of us needs to make our country great except to keep doing diligently what we all are doing in our daily lives. Favourite song has to be Manoj kumars- Rang de basanti chola from Shaheed.
Patriotism is felt all through the year , every single day. It’s just that we really celebrate this feeling on 15 August. A country becomes the best when it’s people become the best. As individuals, we have done our best that’s all.”Apni aazadi ko hum hargis mita sakte nahi” this song is my favourite patriotic song for a very special reason because this is the first patriotic song that I sung in my kindergarten. I still remember the lyrics.Ira Sone
We need to make our country corruption-free. In India one way or the other, we bribe to get the work done, that needs to be stopped and we should promote tourism. India is so beautiful yet enough tourists are not coming to India. My favourite patriotic song is Dil diya hai jaan bhi denge from film Karma.
We need to make India absolutely clean country. Our citizens still throw garbage and spit anywhere and we don’t even follow government rules. India has beautiful places like Shimla, Sikkim, Rajasthan, we should promote tourism more and the economy has to contribute in the development of the nation. My favourite patriotic song is Chakde India, the song is very new age and meaningful.
We should stop fighting in the name of religion. India is a cosmopolitan country with a cosmopolitan culture where everyone can co-exist. My favourite patriotic song is Yeh Desh Hai Veer Jawano Ka from film Naya Daur.
I think the government is doing a lot and the change is happening already which are seen to be very positive but as I live in Mumbai I will talk about it. I feel in Mumbai there should be places which should be open till late. I feel that the government should give permission to open good restaurants on the beachside. They can make a path on the beachside where people can jog. As we have a good coastline so I feel that prominent places like Juhu or Versova should be developed. And yes, restaurants should be open at least till 3 am. These things should be allowed legally so there is no scope in doing it illegally. Infrastructure-wise Mumbai has to be better, we always wake up in the monsoons, I think making Mumbai roads better should be like a years cycle. Whether rains are there or not there it should be a continuous process of maintaining the roads. My favourite patriotic song is Ae Mere Watan Ke logo. I like that song because it’s about the soldiers. I think even today no one can match up to the sacrifices they do. In reality shows and all, we see a lot of people talking about their sacrifices but a soldiers sacrifice is unmatched because he is doing for the whole country, it’s his duty. There is a lot of difference to sacrifice for your family and to sacrifice for duty or the country and I think that’s why our soldiers need to get the most respect. How much ever we do for them it will always be less.
Already the drives are on. The cleanliness drive is on and as a good citizen we must follow that but we are still far away from corruption rate, people have to know that. People should feel guilty about it. My favorite patriotic song is Ae Watan Ae Watan Humko teri kasam.Munisha Khatwani
As an Indian, I feel what we can do to make India the best country in the world is that probably we can be more progressive with our roads, corruption and systematic in many other things. Cleanliness is required all over India. My favourite patriotic song is Suno Gaur Se Duniya walo chahe jitna zor laga lo because it gives me a good feeling and it makes me feel content.
I do not agree that we feel patriotic only on the 15th of August. It’s true that we cannot feel it all the time but yes it comes out on specific occasions. We can take an example of the world cup, or even India VS Pakistan match where we all come together as a nation and just have that in us that we have to win, that feeling is also patriotic feeling. My favourite patriotic song is Vande Mataram.
Reyaansh Vir Chadha
Everyone has to take an initiative to make our country the best in the world instead of just criticizing it. We need to understand the importance of education and make sure that everyone is educated in our country. Education is a necessity
I don’t agree with the statement that patriotism comes only on 15 August. Let me give you an example, on your birthday you feel special it doesn’t mean that you don’t feel special on other days. It’s a day which is allotted for a particular reason. So feeling patriotic only on 15 August does not mean that you are not a patriot. We all love Diwali but it doesn’t mean that we should burn crackers the whole year. If I talk about how to make our country better, we can do a simple thing, try to become an IAS , IPS officer. There have multiple exams to be given if they want to become one. So in the same manner, if you want to enter politics, I feel qualification needs to be considered. The proper filtration of people needs to be done. Shortlisting of the people should be done. There should be a proper examination, how IAS and IPS are produced in the same way politicians should be produced. If I talk about my favourite freedom fighter, I was majorly impressed by Bhagat Singh, at the age of 23 he gave his life for the country its unimaginable. At the age of 23, I did not even have a proper moustache and at that age fighting for the country and openly challenging Britishers! Hats off to him! My favourite patriotic song is Kar Chale Hum Fida Jaan-O-Tan Saathiyon.
