As countrymen, the least one can give to his or her own country is due respect and love, which comes in the form of respecting its culture, heritage and, of course, celebrating its national pride each and everyday. While most of us are always grateful to our nation for everything, there is a group of people who are seemingly so much inclined to western fantasies that loving one’s nation or even respecting the National Song seem to be a far fetched thought.
If you have been following news regularly, you would know the ruckus certain “intellectual” people created when they were mandated to stand up to pay respect to the National Anthem in cinema halls. So much had the chaos been that the central government had to urge the Supreme Court to pull down the mandate. Yet, people did not stop once to filth-mouth the Indian government led by PM Narendra Modi.
Now slamming those people is none other than Rohit Sardana. One of the brightest and among the handful patriotic journalists in the country, Rohit Sardana took to his Twitter account today to post a tweet that lashed out at the anti-nationals of the country without using any coarse word or ostentatious language. Take a look at what it says –
‘तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय’ संस्कृत में है, इसलिए ऐतराज़ करने वाले-
१. नोट इस्तेमाल करना बंद कर दें,हर नोट पे ‘सत्यमेव जयते’ लिखा रहता है.
२. कोर्ट ना जाएँ, अदालत की टैग्लायन है-’यतो धर्म: ततो विजय:’
३.LIC से बीमा ना कराएँ, वो कहते हैं – ‘योगक्षेमम वहाम्यहम’

Wasn’t it absolutely on point? In short and simple sentences Rohit etched out the importance of our languages, of our heritage and culture.
