It’s patriotism all the while...

Friday, January 26, 2018

Come January 26, the mood is very much sentimental all around.  The day starts with feelings of patriotism, fraternity, sectarian cohesion, devotional emotions and all such mixed feelings from  loud speakers and public address system in housing complexes, school functions, government offices,  secretariat and Mantralaya grounds.  

The tempo is upbeat, mood very buoyant, pledges and promises are punctuations of almost every other sentence…the spirit is exemplary and at times, adrenaline too rushes right into veins as and when fiery speakers or devotional songs touch the right chord.

The sanguine mood, however, starts petering out in the afternoon session and by evening, life is once again as usual…full of ego clashes, power clashes, and all that is part and parcel of common man’s life everyday and tales of sacrifices made and battles waged for this great day (January 26) start gradually slipping back into dementia till next January 26!

Only if those great emotional sentiments of the day stayed longer with people, all those rows over Padmavati or Padmaavat and other such shows of divisive nature would not dare disturb otherwise cohesive Indian society and will make it inclusive enough in the true sense of the word and very spirit.
