Destroy Erase Improve
Every country has its own classic musical art form, what makes ours so much better than theirs?

I feel proud of my country only for its communal harmony . People in other country feel surprised when they find HIndu,Muslim,Sikh,Christan,Buddhist all living together ...still there is peace
Culture..mmm not that happy coz it did not improve with time and some people feel proud with following all those bad rituals ..specially dowry, showoff in parties and marriages which nearly is a waste of all savings of a father...which are also the sole reason of killing baby girls
One thing I dont quit understand...if Sunita williams goes into space after doing a NASA job for 15 years ...y should be India proud of her?? what contribution she gave here. rather then improving our scintific research these guys go to other country to contribute and we feel proud of them..strange
I'm proud of the fact that India's contribution to the world is zero.
Its not about politics. The concept of a nation as a whole is something I find to be primitive. Without the nation, neither will the pride nor the politics associated with it exist.
Suppose if I find an uninhabited island (not under the jurisdiction of any country) with the highest yield of coconuts and establish my own country there along with a couple of people under me, name it Coconutopia and the people develop a pride for the highest yield of coconuts in the world. But it is still an arbitrary piece of land.
I believe that Humans, regardless of how developed we think we are, are still animals. And a country is a territorial instinct not unlike that as practiced by lesser animals. As enlightened and wise creatures, I believe that Humans need to be above petty things like politics. A country does exist as a cog in the machine of international politics.
"...the ideal man of India is not the magnanimous man of Greece or the valiant of Europe, but the free man of spirit, who has attained insight into the universal source by rigid discipline and practice of disinterested virtues, who has freed himself from the prejudices of his time and place. It is India's pride that she has clung fast to this ideal and produced in every generation and every part of the country, from the time of rsis of the Upanishads and Buddha to Ramakrishna and Gandhi, men who strove successfully to realize this ideal."
Dr S Radhakrishnan in Eastern Religion and Western Thought
It is India's pride
Well , we contribute to the national pride . Don't we ?
Say, If we do something wrong , it'' hurt the pride of nation.If we do something right , it'll improve the pride of nation.
Now , the contribution made to it on a large scale may be very minute or small but still every one amongst is responsible for who we are .(Indian).
Consider the same stuff on a small scale basis , like a Team of Players.It'll make some sense.
Its a controversial topic , though and these are just my 2 cents . But IMO , it matters upto an Extent.
Just like there are diff habitats or wildlife in national parks, the differences in humans is in need of conservation, it should be cultivated and celebrated. If they amalgamate into one, we will be no diff than a beehive or anthill. The danger of too much communication is that brains will tend to think the same thing, and get stuck there.
There are geographic countours that shape our existence across time, you can look beyond artificial boundries to the actual land and the kind of resources it offers to human consumption.
Historically is even now, not just then. Not fair and lovely but silk, ink, fruits, spices... That kind of stuff. Ionno mebbe Indians are more lactose tolerant than other countries? Paneer pride!

Sakhrie had expressed fears in his letter to Gandhi that the Indian government might use military force to occupy the Naga territory by force. Gandhi assured the Naga delegation that he would go to Kohima, and he would be "the first to shot before any Naga is killed".
Gaddafi in Mizoram: Aizawl Assault | SinlungLong before Muammar Gaddafi bombed his own people, IAF fighters in March 1966 strafed and dropped incendiary bombs on Aizawl, now Mizoram's capital, to crush the Mizo insurgency.
The bombing, which marked the beginning of horrific atrocities committed by Indian armed forces, was never reported in the media and isn't acknowledged by New Delhi.
But the wounds still fester and Mizos are now demanding an apology.
