our president as well as her whole admin is corrupt, most of the cities here are polluted and crowded, there are lots of people who are unemployed. there are lots of things that i should be ashamed of but like a mother to her child i can't hate and abandon my country.. there are still lots of beautiful places outside the cities and the people are very hospitable. and aside from amny paquiao and charice pempengco, i'm proud of late pres cory aquino. i'm proud of the rice terraces and chocolate hills.. many things to be proud of.

I am proud for being rich in natural resources and undeniable beauty from different tourist spots around the archipelago. Unfortunately, few of my country men recognize this God-created thing. They are always looking to the negative side. Despite of the challenges that we are experiencing are country is still moving on! Whatever negative or positive happens to my country it is still my country! and my responsibility is to protect and to be proud of!

I am from India, which is a orthodox country, well known for Peace, unity in diversity, humanity, love, affection, etc., I am very much proud to be as an Indian, for the above said things... these activities makes our country to be the outstanding from other countries... And finally, most of the countries know about the "Indian culture", and many countries said that "Indian culture is the best"... this makes our country to be the best of others...

Hello cainam. I am an Indian. Few days ago I have responded to a discussion in which I wrote that I am not proud of my country. The reason for that is many of the problems that India is facing. Some of them are: POVERTY, CORRUPTION, ILLITERACY, BRAIN DRAIN, POPULATION EXPLOSION, BAD POLITICS, etc. But still there are some of the things on which Indians can definitely proud on. They are: RICH CULTURAL HERITAGE, HUMBLENESS OF INDIANS, TRUTHFULNESS OF INDIANS, and some other. Happy MyLotting.

according to the situation,sometimes i feel proud for this country when i see the various technologies that has taken effect in our country .government has also provided various facilities to a person so that he can live better.but when i saw the other side of our country,i always found violence,kidnapping,corruption,rapping,politics.these all things made me ashamed of that this is our country .if i am in politics i will try to remove all these violence things in every heart of a person so that every individual of my country will fell proud for this country

The beautiful places in my country and the day to day businesses make the life goes on here, england is quite a busy country so we hardly get time to wait and smell the roses but what I am proud of is the people who wake up very early to go to a work for the monthly salary instead of everytime complaining about daily life.

I'm from India and as many of us know that it is a land of colorful rituals and culture that encourages brotherhood. I'm always amused to listen to the various rituals and customs people follow all around India. I'm sure most Indian's like me love the nature's bliss that India has and like to visit the untouched parts of India that are not only pollution-free but also act as a refreshing holidaying spots
