India has always worshipped Nature. The great Rishis of the Vedic period. Expressed their love and respect for Nature on the pages of Vedas. The worshipped nature as a life-form. A similar approach was adopted towards the motherland. The Earth has been worshipped as mother and humans collectively were categorized as nation. This noble sentiment of Rishis was also reflected in the depiction of our Nation Bharat as a mother figure-‘Bharat Mata’ numerous scholars, writer and thinkers have displayed respect towards our land as motherland. The immortal phrase ‘Vande Mataram’ reflects this great emotion and it become the most inspiring slogan of the nationalists.
In the post-independence period the government has tried to use the fear of law to generate respect towards the country, but in the absence of religious feeling .the so-called government effort to create national sentiment, has become just a joke or drama. Leaders unfurl the national flag chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and later indulge in corruption by collecting commission. Committing any act against the country has been legally declared a crime, but due to lack of religious sentiment, it won’t be categorized a sin.
When we undertake fast, we observe the religious rituals associated with fast, faithfully. We love as well as fear goddess Durga, but we do not possess similar sentiment towards Bharat Mata. We consider ‘corruption a crime, but not a sin. We are unable to consider ‘patriotism’ as a pious act.
