What is patriotism? Which is the best possible way to instill this noble sentiment in your children?
26th January. Republic Day or a public holiday. Which of these is the prime focus of your lives, as parents? A day off from work and office tensions? Or the Republic Day when you take your children to the local flag-hoisting program? Do you encourage them to participate in the Republic Day contests organised by schools and housing co-operative societies?
Parents should teach their children to respect the National Anthem.
Many children are confused between the Independence Day and the Republic Day. As parents, you should clarify the difference between the two dates.
Festivities and pageants held in the Indian Capital, (including the flag-hoisting by the President and the Republic Day parade), should be watched on television. It will generate a definite patriotic feeling. At the same time, it will mean quality time spent with your children.
