Our Republic Day is right round the corner. It is not just an another holiday which mind you has become the mindset of most people, but is a day to be proud of. When the National Flag is being hoisted by our Prime Minister at the Red Fort, New Delhi; people all over the country and little school children carry in their tiny hands our small Tirangas and celebrate the anniversary of the day marking the formation of our constitution on 26th of January, 1950.
But the most heart wrenching sight is one after all the affairs of the day are over and the roads are streamed with these paper and plastic Tirangas. Is this how we respect our National Flag and by an extension our Nation?
These guys did a social experiment to see what do the people pick up, money or the national flag lying strewn on the road. And the result the saw was sincerely shocking.

Respect your National Flag. Respect yourself. Please pick up any flags you see lying around and preserve them. They are our pride.
