National Anthem – Take A Stand! AndThem AndThen


#NationalAnthem: #UnitedStates of #America 🇺🇸 or #Republic of #India🇮🇳

To #Stand or Stand Not! It has been going on for more than a year now. 🤔

#USA:

  1. &Stands of President&WhiteHouse clear!
  2. &On-field some of citizens/players oppose &they don’t stand taking a stand on the pressing issues! mm
  3. &Opposers: They have issue with the President Donald Trump – the person! mm

 

#IND:

  1. #Govt changes stand & so does #SupremeCourt!?
  2. Supreme Court said its earlier order

    “Playing National Anthem & Standing” was a “Directory” not “Mandatory”!
  3. AndProtests: against again the Prime Minister Narendra Modi – the person & the Govt.!

AndQueries AndViews:

  1. AndThose who are physical/medically restricted and bound to wheels or so, can just show respect putting their main hand/palm on the heart or salute! right!
  2. AndWhy National Anthem in cinema halls or theatres! entertainment places. AndWhy?
  3. AndTo that question next it will come: why show “Smoking Kills” etc. etc. “messages in Public Interest” on the screen before playing a movie! After all it’s entertainment area! The list can go on.
  4. AndIf National Anthem played publicly (irrespective of a cinema hall entertainment! even during National Days – Republic; Independence; Events) & with proper code, show respect, stand; stand respectfully.

 

AndThem AndThen! #Theatric🤐

#&Respect

AndPlease #TakeAStand!

&No #&Right #&Left! 

It’s &Straight!

AndNo #Theatrics, &No Violence, please!!!

EndTheatrics. EndViolence.

(Though &FoodforThought: When Respect for Individual or Respect for AnyBody or so is scarce &| is taken lightly &| as a weakness, asking for Respect for/to something will be too much to ask!)

Birth Day!


Exactly 100 years after the Labor Day was started in the USA, incidentally when my father was a Labor Officer as of that day, the day which is celebrated in India as the Teacher’s Day, the day when a special event happened that inspired my father, as soon as I was born in the day, to name me by the name (which was a bit tweaked literally by my mother) as I am known today! That’s my Birth Day! 🙂
My life has been enriched by my teachers who have come in many forms! And I have been the director’s actor on the sets and my own on the stage of the audience! 🙂
As I know how many years I live, really relatively very very long in the world as it’s known to be much more than the average, but it reminds me of the to-do’s and the do’s (known since my inception) as it gets shorter day by day!
Almost every year, on the eve, I bit get nervous may be for a good mystery to solve; but have been lucky to have the company, comfort and warmth of my dear friend(s) and/or my dear one(s) on the D (B) night and day, it’s my Birth Day! 🙂
