Why there is so much havoc created in the country on the topic of Nationalism (राष्ट्रवाद)? What is a Nation? Isn’t it a boundary line drawn over the map, which had been kept on changing since the evolution of humanity?

Once upon a time, Nepal, Bangladesh,Pakistan,Srilanka etc all (in fact most of the known part of earth) used to be termed as One country for our ancestors. Also History says that Lord Ram visited and lived at all these places while roaming in the forest. Today same region is divided by the men made boundaries (as we call सरहदें) on the maps … Same places are being called as foreign for us. Was Ram serving to the people of foreign that time? Buddha was born at Lumbini which is currently in Nepal, but he spread the messages of goodness and non-violence to all parts of the world in his reach to help humanity without considering any boundaries. There was no hatred on the name of nation’s boundaries
In fact RAM, Buddha n all great souls in the world were serving the whole Humanity on the earth wherever they were.

Still, All natural things i.e. Sun, Moon, Winds, Clouds, Rain etc do not follow the rules of boundaries.

In present also, Many Indians like Satya Nadella, Sundar Pichai, Ajay Bagga, Indira Nooyi etc, heading top MNCs like Google, Microsoft, MasterCard, Pepsico as CEOs which are the origins of foreign economies. Aren’t we all using their products technologies to enhance our lives? Irony is that people who hate foreign or tag people anti-national are spreading these messages using social media facebook/twitter running on their Android or iPhone which are all the products of the foreign soil.

Our lives are better today because some great people at Top work for the whole humanity without considering men drawn boundaries. They don’t differentiate based on the nationality.. If they started behaving too nationalist (as per the definitions of some) with hatred towards foreign and never exchanged products,technologies OR their inventions with foreigners, Can we dream of similar paced evolution of humanity?

My whole point is that There is No need of spreading hatred about the word ‘foreign’ or ‘foreigners’ OR and fighting or killings over the drawn lines on the map. It is seen frequently in many Nations that some of their political leaders or some sections of media keep on spreading hatred using the word anti-national, foreign/foreigners or neighboring nations n fill up the the minds of their citizens with negativity. I would say , Don’t generalize by tagging whole country, college or religion etc as evil or good based on the actions of few. We must understand that Good and bad humans are every where… Lines drawn on the map cannot be the criteria of goodness or evil. Without any doubt, We all love our country so we do respect other countries as well.. I would urge not to be extremists.

Be a Humanist first before tagging yourself Nationalist. Live with peace and spread positivity!
