To build a New India of the dreams of India Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi we we need is a profound young generation which has strong moorings into culture and history. Independence Day is a celebration of the same and therefore all educational institutions, irrespective of their affiliations, must observe this day with great fanfare.

As a nation going through a churning, we must appreciate that despite debates around it and clamour for claiming supremacy on whose nationalism is more pure, the idea is critical to the progress of the country. The spirit of love for one’s country — call it nationalism, patriotism, national pride — is supreme and non-negotiable. At a time when the society is under severe onslaught of regressive values, including materialism, isn't it wise to try every possible opportunity to hammer in our children, a sense of national pride, a fundamental value, that shapes their progressive years?

The Independence Day is a great occasion to achieve this.

I urge Prime Minister and Union HRD Minister of the Government of India to ensure that from 2018 onwards celebration of Independence Day and Republic Day are a must in all schools including private schools across the country.
