I think an ideal citizen is someone who has greatly contributed to the nation in multiple ways. They must be a leader and not a follower. He must stand for what he believes in. An ideal citizen is a person who is unselfish and always committed to the welfare of the nation. He must lead his people in a very nice way and must be unpartial towards everyone. He must treat every person with kindness, he must have equal amounts of intellect and talent to give advises when required. Ofcourse above all character certainly counts.

Hi narayan2006, i truly agree on that people are the building blocks of a nation. A ideal citizen is someone who respects others, who is considerate, understands their responsibility as a country men. They must have clean values and thoughts and which always contribute to country's progress and prosperity. We all know a famous phrase - "United we stand... divided we fall...". A good citizen can actually give their best to prove the above statement true. Ideal citizen is a pleasant citizen of the nation...
