Every year we witness a surge of patriotic emotions in citizens of this great nation, especially around the national holidays. Some take it to the spirit and some with utmost ridicule, citing why to be a patriot on a particular day and not always. Well RJ Sukriti presents an excellent insight into the unabashed patriotism of we the people for which she surely deserves a pat on the back.
In this video, she is seen offering people free lunches(mind it, there are no free lunches in this world) in the form of 1000 and 2000 INR bills but the ONLY catch is…
They would have to tear the national flag first (yes, you read it right!)
Imagine the plight of the guy, who hustles all week trying to make ends meet for his family, being offered a monetary jackpot which would assure him; at least a week of comfort.
BUT, he happily rejects the proposal at the behest of his love for his national flag! Such is the motivational quotient of this video which would make you realize how wrong we are when we judge someone when they do not behave in a certain way(our way) branding them as non-patriots.
When the traditional media is in tatters for highlighting the trifle or intolerant matters, this very thoughtful gesture by Radio Mirchi spearheaded by RJ Sukriti takes the positive journalism several notches higher.
I couldn’t simply ignore such a brilliant piece of mass media, and many more such endeavors are needed in order to remove the illusion of much-hyped intolerance from our eyes.
