I sang Vande Mataram with pride today.Our national song for decades, before we finally won freedom,inspired of Indian to dedicate themselves to the cause.Even afterthe nation achieved independence for many it wa a re-affermation that long held faith that the motherland is verily the Mother. Is it a one sided or religious way of looking at things? I dont know andd frankly dont care. This is exactly how i feel and have always felt. Shkol Desher Rani Se Je Aamar Janambhoomi Today it doesnt matter the least to me that some people find strange reasion not to sing this song. As I said vefore patriotism needs to come from the heart and to me being an Indian is a privilege. Jai Hind.
