“For me, pa­tri­o­tism is love that su­per­sedes any in­di­vid­ual or vested in­ter­est. It is the im­pulse to do the right, some­times dif­fi­cult, thing, for the coun­try in the face of hard­ships. In a way, it is com­pa­ra­ble to a mother’s love—un­con­di­tional and sa­cred. Dur­ing the pre-In­de­pen­dence era, the most ob­vi­ous way to ex­press that love was by fight­ing the colo­nial power, now we must love our coun­try and serve it how­ever we can. Na­tion first.”
