Ayyaz Ahmad : I feel patriotic every second of my life. I feel proud when it’s Independence Day or Republic Day as it reminds me how brave my country men have been. Those who have sacrificed their lives for our Independence and those who are on the borders fighting for our security. But I feel sad when I see how our country is still bound by societal pressures. Our national heroes have given us a slogan, ‘To Live & Let Live,’ and I wish if we Indians follow it and make India really Independent. This will be real Independence for modern India. Shaheed Bhagat Singh is one of the most impactful personalities, who fought for our country. His approach and fighting spirit makes me feel alive. Whenever I read his stories or watch films based on his life, I get the spirit to fight. My favourite patriotic song is Aey Mere Pyaare Vatan sung by Lata Mangeshkar.
