Let me first by saying this post has nothing to do with Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?. I have had many comments and private messages praising my signature and for me to create a separate post explaining what I meant and why I wrote it.

For those of you who haven't seen my signature can just scroll down or if you are lazy here it is: A True Indian isn't the one who wears a flag on the 15th August, but the one who picks up a discarded flag off the street on the 16th!

Before going further I have to say that I didn't create this quote - my dad did. He was born and bought up in India but emigrated to England decades ago. He used to tell us that every time we celebrate our independence on the 15th August most people think that this is it - one day's of celebration shows our patriotism and back to work the next day. He will get really upset over the fact that the next day the Indian flags will lie on the road and will be trampled on by some Indians.

That is why my dad will always drum it into us that "A True Indian isn't the one who wears a flag on the 15th August, but the one who picks up a discarded flag off the street on the 16th" and that we cannot call ourselves true Indians with just celebrating our independence and not take care of the country the rest of the year. That we should start by being patriotic ourselves before asking fellow Indians to do the same - that if we cannot join the Army, Police forces etc than at least we should give them the proper respect and applaud them for saving our country.

If I have hurt anyone with this post I am truly sorry but I only wrote it as people asked me to. If you have any incidents that made you proud to be an Indian than you are welcome to comment.

Well the things which you wrote are quite true, but fortunately I have never seen a single flag lying on the streets after 15th August. 

Even I have thought about this a lot of time that why do we show our patriotism only on the 15th & after that we go back to our respective works? I haven't got my answer yet.

I must say your Dad is really awesome & a true Indian in every sense.

Thanks for making this post & explaining your signature.

Thanks Megha - this just shows that these days people are really fighting to make sure our country doesnt hang it's head in shame.
 
Atleast you are aking yourself that question - first step and than you will soon find an answer.
 
Will let my dad know you said that - I am proud to be an Indian and proud that my parents are true Indians in every sense.
