Patriotism - An attitude to be abandoned

    1. People say I am self cantered when I say ‘I’.
    2. People say I am narrow minded when I say I love my caste or religion.
    3. People say I am against national integrity if I say my race or state is the best.
    4. But they hail me that I am patriotic when I say I am proud to be an Indian. Pride is a negative attitude. We don’t have to be proud to be anything. Common, lets love people everywhere and not borders.

I fully agree with this. I don't really care that I was born in Scotland. Of course it's a lovely place, but I am just enjoying being part of this world right now to be honest. I am a member of this planet! All the nuances of life seems to cause so much problem in people's lives. People are too easily focused on their own lives that they forget that they are only a small part of the rich tapestry of life, and should show more respect and understanding. Forget the small picture, look at the big picture. Memento mori!
