In my personal opinion, singing Vande Mataram in schools should not be a problem. I don’t know about the various interpretations of the National Song, but it is a feeling of being grateful to the motherland. When we used to sing Vande Mataram at school, it always created a feeling of equality, being together, and being respectful towards everyone. It was no less than a practice to be mindful and peaceful. So why shouldn’t we?
