PATRIOT DAY!

indianyouth

A special day for special thoughts, words and deeds for all to know!
Patriot Day is the third Monday of April in United States!
Better to think of much exhorted PATRIOTISM than the patriots.
Noble trait, virtue and quality sure is patriotism!

Patriotism- national pride the feeling of love, devotion
And sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other
Citizens with the same sentiment. can be a combination of many
Feelings – own homeland, ethnic, cultural, political aspects!

Patriotism- love for one’s native land and may be symbolism
Of culture,agriculture social bond and the soil in which born!
Patriotism induces nationalism not much different
Yet is -let us develop in our youngsters -nation will progress!

விரட்டி அடிக்கும்!
பலகால நட்பதனை நாடச் செய்யும்
வருங்காலச் சிறப்பதனைக் கூட்டுவிக்கும்!
விகாரி ஆண்டதனைக் கை கூப்பி
வரவேற்போம்! வாய் நிறைய வாழ்த்திடுவோம்!

வண்ண வண்ணக் கோலமிட்டு
வாயிலிலே காத்திருப்போம்!
விகாரியே வருக! விருந்தாக அமைந்திடுக!

Image result for image of the group of our soldiers slain in Pulwama recently in lying down posture

World thrives on the sacrifices of thousands of its sons and daughters
It is for the world to remember and follow their foot steps and serve!
Sacrifices for the family, society, nation and the world
In any form or mode- sacrifices sure deserve honor quite bold!

Eighteenth March is today National Supreme Sacrifice Day
To honor those who made tremendous sacrifices for the sake
And the good of others as well as those who sacrifice their lives
Every day for us.! The men and women in uniform who have lay
Down their lives protecting their country and communities. And those
Who stepped forward during times of crisis to rescue a stranger
Or a neighbor and gave the supreme sacrifice now and then.
These sacrifices don’t come in uniform  often remain unsung.

An assassin is sung today- with a temple for him and books published
As inhumanly planned by some at the  Center! The assassinated
Getting into oblivion- a paradox we see here in our
Holy Motherland India that is Bharath! Let us arrest the trend!
