Racism is when you stand for supremacy of your race. Wrong!
Regionalism is when you favor a Kannadiga over a Bengali. Wrong!
Casteism is when a Brahmin boy wants to marry a girl only from Brahmin caste. Practised, but still wrong!
Nepotism is to favor one’s own kin against the merit. Wrong!
Then why believing in national supremacy, cheering for one’s own nation in event of war, appeal to emotion on national grounds aka patriotism is good? Is patriotism the last surviving form of groupism which is still widely regarded as a virtue?
I’m not proud to be an Indian, I am not ashamed of being an Indian, I just happened to be an Indian.
Is there something wrong having such an attitude?
