Afraid of Being Patriotic?

Interesting isn't it.

You do not show that eagerness or enthusiasm 'now' that you have grown up when National Independence Day is celebrated. The national songs that one used to sing in schools, the daily anthem recital in morning assembly, the parades, the flag hoisting on your car or home - you are not just interested are you now? Is due to the fact that you are not a kid anymore?

I somehow believe that we are 'afraid' of showing our nationalism now. Somehow it feels that if you show your love for your country, you will be bombarded with questions like "What Independence??! You kidding me?! We are not independent!". "We are a slave nation!". "Pakistan is in shambles! You celebrating independence?!"

God damn it.

Is it really so?
