Patriotism

I wanted to write a post on a movie which i saw today, but then, i thought i should write about something else before it. Its been ages that ive visited a cinema hall. The last movie i saw was Taare Zameen Par. I missed the aura of the hall so much that i decided to watch Bachna Ae Haseeno. It was a morning show on a weekday, but i was greeted by an unbelievably descent crowd. The show started with advertisements. Warnings and instructions were given which was made mandatory after the rescent bomb blasts. And then something interesting happened! They put the national anthem! I stood up at once. Believe it or not, the entire crowd stood up for the anthem! Though there was a little hesistance and delays at some corner and feeble laughs and whispers somewere, everyone stood with bowed heads. I dont know what I felt, I was definitely happy and proud, but there was a rush of adrenaline, a lil excitement about the whole scene. Salute to my nation, I am so happy to see this respect for our anthem!
