India is a beautiful country. Yes, we may have our problems but there is so much to us than our flaws. India is the largest democracy in the world. Our country has one of the largest populations, all from different backgrounds, but even with our diverse beliefs, we live together in harmony to make India a melting pot of cultures. Indians have reached great heights. Both current Mr.World and Ms.world are indian.India is the world’s largest, oldest, continuous civilization but india never invaded any country in her last 10,000 years of history without provocation. India is reputed for its skill in all feilds: IT, weaving, writing, music. India has so much to be proud of so why then, are we ashamed to be Indian.
I wonder why it is that we Indians look down on India but seen to glorify the west. Are we not at power with them? Have we not achieved a lot? Indians see classical dances like Bharatnatiyum and look down upon it. Indians see classical dances like ballet and wish they could do it. I respect both dance forms equally amd think they are special in their own way. Both should be appreciated. Foreigners realize this and appreciate our indian dances, but why don’t Indians.
Our national anthem is one of the most beautiful anthems in the world. Everytime it is played my jeart swells up with pride and I cannot help but sing it. I wonder why Indians cannot even stand up when its being played and respect the anthem even if they do not wish to sing along. Most of them would stand up in a heartbeat for another country’s anthem, but not Indias. India is our motherland and had given us so much. We should love her and respect her. India is the land of bollywood and good food. I am sure there is no Indian who doesnt like at least one typical Indian dish. India is so special and it hurts me to see people not appreciate her.
I share this on republic day, when i see the spirit of india all around me as people buy paper flags, but then i come back to reality and i know they will be lying on the floor or in the dustbin tomorrow. I share this hoping all my fellow Indians understand tbe worth of our country and help her fix her flaws.
