Being a responsible Indian

We all know that Pakistan is waiting for a time to strike on India. They will help the terrorists to give them what they need against us. In times like these, as Indians we have a lot of responsibilities ourselves.

For the next six months at least India is under threat of retaliation by our enemies.

Here are some from internet search about war related civilian duties.

  1. What's done is done. Forwarding jokes is fine but the situation is grim. So let's come back to senses and ask ourselves, "What is my responsibility in a crisis". Understand that this is an hour of national high alert in India. STOP and THINK for a moment.

  2. "Loose lips, sink ships". Your facebook, Whatsapp & Instagram messages could go to our enemies within minutes. if you have friends in defence, DO NOT share their messages to civilian groups. Just be silent for a few months on security matters. Your brilliant insights may be just what the enemy needs to understand the Indian psyche.

  3. Do not photograph or take videos of anything related to local or national security. No selfies with tanks or jawans. The enemy is monitoring social media activity, city by city and tracking our forces.

  4. Do not take pictures in airports, railway stations, government facilities, etc. or circulate them.

  5. Do not forward any sensitive videos and if anyone sends it in a group, caution the sender and insist on the admin removing it immediately.

  6. Be on high alert personally, in public spaces and in case of any security threat, alert local authorities immediately ( suspicious packages, panicked drivers near sensitive facilities, etc.) Become the eyes and ears of India's security forces.

  7. If you have a flight/train to catch, arrive early and help make the security checks smooth. Don't throw tantrums and become a headache for the CRPF/security teams there. Instead greet them with a Jai Hind or Thank you, and receive a broad smile.

  8. Prepare yourself to be useful to the country in its time of need. What can you offer: Learn first aid. Or traffic management. Or volunteer somewhere. Become useful in real life.

  9. Sensitize others - family, children, youth, drivers, maids, friends, - that this is a time of national emergency. Make them feel their responsibility.

Be a responsible Indian citizen.
