My country and my people speak against our ancient culture which was struggled to be preserved by our freedom fighters. This is not the country our leaders wanted. The leaders like Nehru, Gandhi, Bhagat Singh,Shashtriji, Mangal Pandey wanted a free and United India but no,our country youth is leading us somewhere else. Those leaders of that times were so patriotic they sacrificed their lives for the good of our countrymen but watch out, our present leaders who cannot rationally debate on certain issues.
Speaking US soft power. A girl studying in D. P.S Delhi belongs to a middle class traditional family. Her parents persuade her not to wear jeans during their visit to temples but she clearly denies and says her friends will be laughing at her in her traditional attire. What’s wrong?

India is a rising power but not a developing country in terms of culture and hard power. Respect! This is what Bharat is made of, this is our richness, this is what will bring peace and harmony to my country, my people. Yes, it starts with me and you not others first.
