Your country and your religion run in your blood. Your country evokes a sense of pride and dignity. A lot of times when I go to the movies, they play the national anthem and I’m certain that you get the goosebumps too like I do. A sense of immense honor and love prevails. Our country is our identity as a citizen. When a cricket match or a badminton match is underway we laud our players in the stadium and many times cheer from our living rooms, workplaces etc. A scuffle here and a skirmish there with the neighborhood and we raise our eyebrows to it in distaste. Patriotism comes from within. This sentiment is bagged by filmmakers who transform nationalism into movies worth watching. Bollywood is filled with movies on patriotism.
