Mark Twain: "India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most artistic materials in the history of human of man are treasured up in India only!"

As a citizen, we are one of the dominant pillars of the country. All citizens of India retain several rights and responsibilities towards our community, state, and country. They are entitled to enjoy all the legal rights, and privileges granted by the government to the people comprising its constituency and are obligated to obey its laws and attain their duties.

Patriotism is the spirit of love, affection and thought of fondness to the country and citizens who share the same sentiment. It is about taking pride in one's origin and working for the prosperity of the country.
