Respect the National Flag

The Supreme Court had declared that the Indian national flag can be hoisted & displayed by individuals in their homes and in thier personal capacity as well.

 There is a new trend of selling flags made up of paper and plastic, . With a sense of pride, people enthusiastically buy such flags but the very next day, we find these flags being trampled upon the road, in dustbins and elsewhere. In this context, people forget that they are insulting the flag. Often, these flags are burnt along with garbage. It is the duty of every individual to maintain proper respect of the National Flag. From this point of view the following dos & donts will prove useful
