Every child in Delhi will be a patriot in the true sense, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal exuded as he launched the AAP government's ambitious ''Deshbhakti Curriculum'' . At the launch event held at Chhatrasal Stadium on the birth anniversary of revolutionary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh, the chief minister remarked that nowadays people feel patriotic only while raising the Tricolour or singing the national anthem. But patriotism has to be a continually evolving feeling within everyone, he said.
Today we only feel patriotic while raising the Tricolour or singing the national anthem. The problem is it only props up when we do something of this sort," Mr Kejriwal said. Mr Kejriwal said all kinds of professionals are coming up ''deshbhakt professionals'' are not being developed. "It doesn't mean we won't promote professions. We will continue to support all kinds of education but we will add a touch of patriotic values to them. We will develop ''deshbhakt'' doctors, lawyers, engineers, actors, singers, artists, journalists and so on. The facilitator's handbooks for two cohorts -- classes 6 to 8 and 9-12 -- and 100 stories of freedom fighters and patriots were also unveiled at the launch event.
