Hoisting of the Indian Flag stirs patriotism within every individual who stands and salutes at the flag unfurling. The slogan ‘Bharath Maata Ki Jai!’ reverberates in the air reminding us all that we are one united Nation! No matter what divides us as individuals, be it caste, creed, sect or religion, there is one thing that binds us together; and that is our Unity!
Remember the days in school when you would have cultural activities and had to participate in the school march past when there was a flag hoisting ceremony? Remember singing Vande Maataram with great zeal and enthusiasm? During those tender stages of our lives, we were taught important values of life – the strength of Unity and Humanity.
Unity makes us one single entity. As human beings it is deep engraved in our blood and veins to help our kind. Though the times have changed with the coming of the new era, humanity is still alive in each and every one of us. It is just a matter of stirring that part of our conscience.
