The mooted idea is noted to be strikingly ridiculous ! In today's scenario, everyone , let alone common man or uneducated, is known to spend mindfully even hours in wait (in a 'q') for buying or gaining an entry into a cinema theatre or cricket stadium. If so, the aired grievance that “many people found it difficult to stand for 4-5 minutes to sing the anthem” has to be quoted to be simply dismissed as verging on insanity. Further, just as what ‘imposition’ means to a school boy, ‘repetition’ of a word or line has the same laudable objective - no different- e.g . as any musical composition, prayer song /verse, so on.
Is it not equally ridiculous that any 'government', besides the rest- the media being no exception- thinks it has so much time at disposal for such non-issues, on top of / in preference to any number of other overwhelmingly pressing issues to be looked into and resolved for the benefit of its people?
