One more independence day of India is coming.All indians are happy to celebrate it.As a part of celebrations,for a day Indian cityzens can use National flag .But most of the people do not know how to use it in accordance with law..Here are some tips....Never tie it with anyother flags.Never tie National flag below to anyother flag.Don't use national flag in anyother model .Tri color must be proper.Remove National flag from top of houses and institutions after 4pm.Do not throw away National flag into groud after the day.Do not use National flag on vehicles after the day.Do not use National flag in advertisements.If anybpody violate these rules ,it is punishable under provisions of law.All these restrictions were impossed to protect the national honour and it is the duty of all cityzen to obey them.
There was a news last year that in a school in Tamil Nadu ,the headmaster hoisted national flag upside down and an autorikshaw driver,seeing this ,manhandled the concerned head master.I salute that Driver and he should be a model to all of us.
There are some guidelines about singing National Anthem too.We should stand up in attention,holding our head high and should sing along.Never use your mobile phones or other devices while singing national anthem.Do not walk away while national anthem is on.Do not use national anthem as a music.Do not use national anthem as ring tones.Never interrupt when national anthem is on.There may be diffrent ways of honouring national anthem for other countries.Do not import them to India while we sing our National Anthem.Remember a Union minister is facing trial now for putting his hand on his chest while singing National Anthem.He tried to respect national anthem as Americans do .Just think about the hight of ignorence !
Indians should have more civic sense and should learn more to protect national honour.The kids should be taught well about this from school itself.
Happy Independence Day. Jai hind.
