What is patriotism?
Patriotism means love and regard for our country.It is a natural thing that a man loves that place where he opened his eyes and spent whole of the life.So,the love for our country is natural and is very much important for every citizen of that country.Patriotism is said to be a very noble quality in a person.
A patriot loves his mother land and is ready to do anything for it.Patriotism is essential for the country and the nation too.Today,the world is facing countless problems and the major reason for that is lack of love and regard for our country.People living in the same country are brothers and they should work hard for their country.Real love for the country urges the man to work for their country with full passion.He performs his duty with full devotion and honesty.
A country is not a land or a collection of rivers,mountains and valleys but it is a collection of our aspiration,dreams and religion.We love our country because it is the centre of our dreams.We have got this homeland after a lot of sacrifices.Patriotism makes a person so passionate and a good citizen that he serves his nation with the best of his talents.It is so well said by someone:
''Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it''
Ralph Waldo Emerson has said:
''When a whole nation is roaring patriotism at the top of his voice,I am fain to explore the cleanness of its hand and purity of its heart''
Only those nations survive who have great sense of patriotism.Our country can become a great one only if all of its citizens are patriotic.So,give your love to your home land.
