Can cinemas evoke patriotism?
Can cinemas evoke patriotism?

Indian court orders cinemas to play national anthem before films, but will that actually instil patriotic emotions to the movie goers? With this law, I fear our national anthem does not end up being humiliated as an uncalled for disturbance. There have been instances on social media over disrespecting the anthem by many including stars. What do you guys think? Was this a wise decision by the court?

This is such a bad idea. Will only result in more vigilantism from the bhakts! A movie theatre is NO place to show our patriotism.

I feel that at least a person pays the respect to the nation for any good reason.

Personally I do not think some positive things by playing the National Anthem in halls and theaters. Patriotism is a natural phenomena, it cannot be injected to the people and I think patriotism cannot be defines or showed by these childish things. If we really love our country or if people really love our country then there should not be any corruptions there should not be any violence on the name of religions there should not be any poor people. Just standing to show respect to the Nation by doing this it will not increase the sense of Patriotism but yes we do stand up whenever we hear the Anthem.

How can showing respect to your nation be a childish act? Then celebrating Independence Day or Republic Day is also a childish act for you, right?

Its nothing like that but what I believe is patriotism or the sense of patriotism cannot be forcefully injected to people. I do not see any kind of increased sensitivity among the people because of playing the National Anthem in halls and theaters. I believe Patriotism is something which is very much natural. I have already mentioned in my comment that yes we should stand up whenever we hear the Anthem but I doubt people do that honestly.

Yes Bindita, this is very true. There are people who hardly understand patriotism and respect their nation. Instead, they make fun or issue of playing the National Anthem in movie hall.
