A patriotic feeling is not a moral duty of our great soldiers only. It must reveal in a civilian also. As a civilian one should immensely loves his nation and do many good things for the betterment of the country, e.g. never take a bribe or give bribe, by no means throw litter or any trash on the street, always respect fellow citizen and provide help whenever needed, they are aware of the rights and the duties and constantly put great efforts for a better nation. This feeling for their country is called patriotism. It is a noble feeling of the mind and one of the best virtues anyone can find in anyone. It is believed that to serve our motherland is much more superior to have a place in heaven. There are people who sacrifice their own interest and even lives for the good of the country (and so they are immortals). We must love our country but at the same time also not hate others. Wars break out between two nations for want of love for other countries. We should, therefore, love our country as well as those of others.
