Republic Day Special | We, the less aware Indians, love our nation!

On the occasion of 68thRepublic Day, we indulged Nagpur youngsters in a Street Talk @ Nation Next, to find out about their awareness levels about our nation. Much to our surprise, we received quite a few mixed answers ? some hilarious, some unexpected and some, correct! When we asked Nagpurians about the reason behind celebrating Republic Day every year on January 26, we were told that India got independence today 68 years back, hence the celebrations! What more, the nightingale of India Lata Mangeshkar penned our national song ? Vande Mataram, according to a young lad! While some Nagpurians were spot on with their answers, there was a student who was under the assumption that Mahatma Gandhi was the first Prime Minister and Subhash Chandra Bose is the writer of our national anthem ? Jana Gana Mana.

When team Nation Next asked Nagpurians whether ones lack of general knowledge about their country makes them less patriotic, they unanimously disagreed. We were glad when people told us, Serving our nation is all that matters. A responsible citizen is one who abides by all the rules, follows his duties and protects women. Knowledge isn’t everything.

Nagpur’s educationist Yogesh Deshpande told Nation Next, Patriotism according to me is an eternal human value, where one tries to express his love and respect for fellow citizens. Knowledge about ones country is of utmost importance. For instance, children since the beginning must be taught the significance of the colours in our national flag. It’s the duty of the teachers and parents to inform children about our country. The more they come to know about our nation, the more it makes them enthusiastic and inquisitive towards the country. Having said that, possessing less knowledge doesn’t make anybody less patriotic. This generation of ?google? has left no room for discussion with one another as they get all information on the internet. All we teachers expect is some interaction with students. Core committees should be set up for students for discussions to make India better and well informed.

Here’s the link to the video!

Congress leader Prakash Rathod, on Friday, was caught on camera while allegedly scrolling through few adult content clips in the State Assembly. This turned out to be a huge embarrassment for both, Congress and Rathod as regional channels aired the video, in which he was ?caught in the act.
The MLC member was present in the house during the proceedings of the legislative council. While the house was in session, Rathod was watching adult content on his smartphone.
However, he threw these charges under the bus and said, I was looking for materials for a question I wanted to ask the government in question hour.
?When I was looking for question material, I deleted too many messages as my phone storage was full. What the media has shown or seen, I don’t know. I would never do such things or see such things, he added.
This was not the first time in Karnataka that such an incident had happened. Back in 2012, three Bharatiya Janata Party ministers were caught on camera allegedly watching adult content in the State Assembly.
