Today as India celebrates its 67th Republic Day, the country honors the bravery of its martyrs and soldiers in the Republic Day Parade. For the first time in the history of India’s Republic day Parade, a foreign (French) contingent has marched down Rajpath on this occasion. With the theme of women empowerment gaining traction, an all-women stunt contingent has performed during the event.
Here are some quotes on Nation Building to capture the spirit of Republic Day. I was nominated by Shweta M of BODHI – an awesome spiritual blog interspersed with esoteric/ metaphysical concepts.
A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Bombs and pistols do not make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting-stone of ideas. ~ Bhagat Singh
Great Nation is a nation that respects the services of the hero . ~ Soekarno
If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher. ~ A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Your pride for your country should not come after your country becomes great; your country becomes great because of your pride in it.
― Idowu Koyenikan
In a democracy, the well-being, individuality and happiness of every citizen is important for the overall prosperity, peace and happiness of the nation. ~ A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Adding on another quote shared by Mr Kamal Kothari of Vedanta Thoughts
No nation can ever hold up its head, far less take pride of place amongst the nations of the world, if the individuals of which it is comprised think of nothing but personal gain and self glorification. ~ Maulana Wahiduddin Khan
