Promini Chopra‘When I read the Bhagwad Gita and reflect upon how God created the universe everything else seems so superfluous’. These insightful words were said by the great scientist Albert Einstein.
How fortunate we are to be born in the land of the Bhagwad Gita. This country is not just an area of land, a conglomerate of states, roads, mountains, forests or water bodies but a principle and abiding by the principle is patriotism.
I am sure you are aware of the sacrifices made by our soldiers every moment. Not even for a moment should you allow these sacrifices to go into oblivion if you are an Indian in heart and soul.
We have advanced in infrastructure, industries, healthcare, education, science, technology and agriculture and we owe these developments to committed Indians whose eyes survey the world but feet are deeply embedded in the culture of this land. The precedent set by such progressive countrymen, is enough to incite you to work with zeal to make India the best in the world.
You are a reservoir of energy, creativity and progressive ideas and you constitute a large population of this country yet India has not reached the zenith of development.
Why is it so?
Well, it is because there is a difference between what you do and what you are capable of achieving. Recover the Vedanta, the Gita, the Yoga and the philosophy of your country not only in intellect but in your life to connect with the deeper fearless and invincible you.
Broaden your vision not only for yourself but also for your country and work upon perfecting your actions to achieve the aim of a mighty India which leaves an indelible imprint on the world.
Let that momentary surge of patriotic feeling on seeing the national flag in a foreign land become a continuous wave that brings you to the realization that you collectively are the country which is bound to emerge as a superpower with your concerted effort not as `I’ but as an Indian because India is your identity.
