Since yesterday there is a video which has gone viral on social media about how a family in PVR cinema did not stand up for the National Anthem which plays before the start of every movie and then later on the audience did not allow the family to watch the movie and the movie was held up till the time that “family” was sent out of the cinema hall. The video, which someone in the cinema hall has shot it was floating on all social media sites including Whatsapp messenger. Today, all the leading newspapers are carrying out the headlines of the same.
Well actually if someone ask my opinion then I feel that the steps which the audience took were absolutely correct. A National Anthem is the pride of the country and one has to give respect for it, whether you belong to that country or not. And it’s just a matter of few minutes wherein you have to stand till the National anthem is sung and if one cannot do that then that person should be thrown out of our country .
National Anthems are sung before start of many games like football and cricket and till the time both the countries National Anthems are sung no one in the spectator area sits down irrespective of which country you are supporting.
Incase you have missed my earlier post then you can read it here “Can we sing it daily” where in I had clearly expressed my views on making it sort of compulsory to sing our Nation Anthem daily in offices too, the same like we used to do and our children are doing it daily in school.
Our National Anthem is so beautifully composed that it automatically generates positive vibes and energy in our self and pride for our country. I am sure every citizen of their respective country would be getting the same feeling as I do. After hearing the national anthem the adrenaline rush in us, to do something good and better for our country shoots up to its highest level.
So it’s my humble request that please do respect any country’s National Anthem even if you don’t understand the meaning of it but paying respect is a responsibility of ours.
