Patriotism involves each of us making a commitment to this nation ...........that extends beyond our own individual immediate self- interest, ........so that commitment must extend beyond our own time here on Earth. ..........Our greatest leaders have always understood this.......................

I always wanted to join the army but I was convinced by my mother( who was a defence employee, civil side) not to join. See what the CM said about one 26/11 martyer "not even a dog would have visited their house if he had not died". According to me patriotism is respecting the law of the country and helping other citizens in times of need.
