I m Proud Pakistani

From the past couple of years I didn’t celebrated Independence Day like I used to, during my childhood. I still remember the competition among cousins; who has the longest flag displayed at his home.

Surprisingly this year, I am getting a feeler and I guess everybody must be getting it that people are so fed-up of the abnormal happenings and uncertain situations in Pakistan that they are least bothered about the Independence Day. At max they are just happy to get a one day off and rest (at home).

I know I am sharing it at 11th hour but still, I believe this can make a difference.

This year I have attempted to create a change, revive the patriotism among all, make people to think as Pakistani, think that this is their own country, give them the feeling “whatever is the situation, whoever is responsible, it’s(Pakistan) mine!, I love it!, will die for it!”

The way I have decided to make revive this passion is first develop my surrounding as “I am” celebrating Independence Day, a Flag on CAR, a badge on chest and long flag at any prominent location at home would do.

This will compel people to ask me the question “Are you celebrating 14-August!” or they’ll pass a comment “Aur Patriotic!” and my answer would be: aren’t you celebrating! (With a surprised emotion) afterward I’ll induce in his brain that this is his country, he is also responsible to take care of it and the minimum he can do for it is to LOVE it!

P.S: I planned this activity but had no plans to post anything on blog; the credit goes to Rabia Sameem (http://rsameem.wordpress.com). She motivated me to write something on my blog for the Independence Day. Thank you Miss Patriotic! 😉
